This was a great show to stumble upon, glad I can relive it!
An awesome and unplanned way to spend a Saturday night!
So many people hate on New Jersey, but stuff like this makes my heart explode with Jersey pride. This was absolutely one of the most awesome things to witness in person, I still get goosebumps every time I think about it. It was my fourth time seeing Gaslight, and each time I hoped this would happen.
Throughout the entire show, the crowd was yelling “Bruuuuuuce” (not boo-ing, as others have thought.) We heard some rumors, just like we do for many shows we see in Asbury. When they brought out that extra mic, I almost died of excitement. I can’t even describe the feeling in there when Bruce came out. It was magical.
One of my life goals was to be at a show in Asbury where Bruce made an appearance. I can check that off my list, but I hope that’s not the last time I experience it!
So it is early November, and first of all, where did the year go? I feel like I was just exploring Hawaii for three weeks but that was nearly two months ago. The holidays are soon approaching, which for me means a lot of shopping and traveling back and forth to NJ. It has also just dawned on me that I have six concerts over the next two months! What can I say, I love going to shows and pretty much everyone that I want to see plays in either NJ/PA/NY/MD.
Here is my upcoming agenda:
11/26: Brand New
-12/3: Chris Carrabba
-12/4: Max Bemis/Sherri Dupree-Bemis
-12/9: The Gaslight Anthem/Bayside
-12/23: Saves the Day
-12/28: Final Valencia show. Very excited/sad for this. Their “hiatus” better not be forever!
-12/31: Brand New: acoustic, YFW, and requests sets!
