Event: Brian Fallon At Crossroads
A few months ago, I scored two tickets to a “secret” Brian Fallon show at Crossroads, in Garwood NJ. Brian is the lead singer of The Gaslight Anthem (as well as Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies). He’s a Jersey boy who cut his punk-root teeth playing clubs in New Brunswick.
Brian has a very distinctive voice, and many in the media have declared him the heir apparent to Bruce Springsteen. In fact, I first found him, a few years ago, on YouTube doing a version of Springsteen’s Backstreets. But he and his bands have risen on their own merits. He’s one of the best songwriters out there today (in my opinion) and he’s in constant rotation on my song players.
So, on a chilly, foggy Wednesday night, I shoved the little Fuji X100T into my pocket and met up with my chief concert-going date, David Spira (a.k.a The Geek Whisper). I wanted to see what the camera could do in this type of situation.
For most of the night, I shot in Black & White mode. Gotta say, I really love the B&W jpeg files that come out of this camera. Hardly have to touch them except to crop them.
I also wanted to check out the video mode. Remarkable, even hand-holding. Here’s a short clip of Brian doing Long May You Run by Neal Young.

All in all, really impressed. Great night of music, and I got some keepers.
