The Wallflowers and Brian Fallon at THE STONE PONY

The Wallflowers played a sold out show at the Stone Pony last night (july 25), previewing a bunch of tracks from their upcoming “Glad All Over” album, including the new single “Reboot the Mission” and what i feel will be the standout track of the album “it’s a dream”. The band played a 90 minute set that sprinkled in some of their hits, some deeper cuts and the new stuff, and for the encores, Brian Fallon of the Gaslight Anthem, jumped on stage to join in on 3 Wallflower classics and a Nick Lowe cover….

you can enjoy those performances here:

In honor of Girl in a Coma’s upcoming headline show at Bowery Ballroom on July 18th, here’s something from the vaults:

On July 10th 2010, while the anything anything radio show broadcasted on the now defunct WRXP-FM, I had the supreme pleasure to have Girl in a Coma join me in studio, you can listen or download their entire appearance below, including live in studio performances of “BB” and “Walking after Midnight”, plus i’ve also left the entire version of Los Spitfires “Ven Cerca” for your enjoyment. Since that appearance things have really kicked in for the Girls, their 2011 album “Exits and All the Rest” received tons of great reviews and was number 3 on my year end list of best albums of 2011 (see that list HERE), they have been headlining great rooms throughout the country and their cover of “Heatwave” is part of a national JC PENNEY ad campaign,

As mentioned they are headlining Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday July 18th, you can get tickets HERE
See you there! and there’s more, i have some GIRL in a COMA prize packs, that includes a MEET AND GREET with the band! plus a tote bag, a t shirt and a CD for random buyers of tickets. Email me your receipt: anythinganythingrusso@gmail.com for a chance to win!
