The Script and Joshua Radin Party with NYC

No amount of rain could deter fans in New York City from seeing the Script and Joshua Radin at their first of two sold-out shows at Terminal 5. While the Script calls Ireland home, one never would have guessed it as the energetic concertgoers welcomed them enthusiastically, lining up early for the chance to land a coveted spot close to the stage.

Joshua Radin kicked off the show with a 45-minute set that began with he and his acoustic guitar for “No Envy, No Fear,” a song he said was inspired by an idea from Bob Dylan’s biography “to lose all envy and all fear.” The crowd went wild when Radin stepped away from the microphone to sing near the edge of the stage.

Gaslight Anthem Tonight At Terminal 5!

I’ve been following the Gaslight Anthem for a while now. In fact, it was just around this time last year that I stumbled on their feature in Rolling Stone, realizing I knew one of the members from working on the newspaper, The Daily Targum, together at Rutgers. To say they’ve blown up since then is an understatement. By far the hardest band to get an interview with or cover, you’d think it would be easier since I know one of the members.

Gaslight Anthem have been selling out venues throughout the US as well as abroad, even sharing the stage with Bruce Springsteen (see video below). I’m psyched to be catching their show tonight with some former Targum friends. A lot has changed since college, that’s for sure!

Follow along with me at the show tonight via Twitter.
