cool, thanks man! I'll check some of em.
People have rec'd me Against Me!, The Bouncing Souls, and Frank Turner - where to start?
Against Me! New Wave is personally my favorite but there are fans out there who'd probably want to kill me for saying that.
Bouncing Souls - How I Spent My Summer Vacation is one of my favorite albums of all time. Start there. Hopeless Romantic is also fantastic, and all their album ares really really good.
Frank Turner - Love Ire & Song is also one of my favorite albums of all time. Start there. Everything he does is also excellent. Will be interesting to see if you like him if you couldn't get into Bruce, but certainly try. He is one of the best things currently happening to music.
Also must listens for any Gaslight fan:
Hot Water Music - Start with Caution.
The Menzingers - easily the best punk rock band to emerge post Gaslight. If you didn't check out On the Impossible Past after it deservedly got AoTY year do so now. (Also if you actually are in Seattle, go to their show with HWM at Showbox next week)
The Loved Ones - Keep Your Heart and Build & Burn are both perfectly fine starting choices. Also they are probably the "most similar sounding to SoS era Gaslight" in my mind.
The Lawrence Arms - I'd say start with Greatest Story Ever Told, but not really a bad choice here either.
Lucero - I started with 1372 Overton Park and that worked fine. Hard to pick a favorite. But Overton Park is probably the most Gaslight esq so starting there can't hurt.
A good test of "bands like gaslight to listen to" is to see who plays on the revival tour, and then checkout the band they front.
