Brian Fallon Live In New York

Written by:

Brian Fallon and his band stopped by the Capitol Theatre the other night in New York and they were fabulous.

Playing to a packed house at the legendary Port Chester venue, Fallon tore through his winning songbook and a few great covers with ferocity.  He started things off with an inspired take on Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” and segued into his own solo work with “A Wonderful Life,” “Rosemary” and “Honey Magnolia.”

He played back to back covers of two tunes by M0lly and the Zombies (“Smoke” and “Red Light”) and even threw in numbers by his old band The Gaslight Anthem  (“The Navesink Banks”) as well as a few tracks by his side project The Horrible Crowes.

But when opener Ryan Bingham jumped on stage for an encore of the Traveling Wilbury’s “Handle With Care” it was one of the most joyful and raucous rock and roll experiences of the year.

A killer gig, indeed.
