The Gaslight Anthem Ticket GiveawayWhat's your ideal set list for a Gaslight Anthem concert? Would you want a mixture of old and new? Just the hits? Handwritten songs only? What would be the best closer for the set? I'll choose my favorite answer by the end of the day and notify the winner via PM. Good luck!

Would love to see a nice mix along with some of the new songs I hear that they have been playing. While 59 Sound is probably my favorite album of theirs, I love it all. Closing with The Backseat would be ideal for me.

Gaslight plays a lot of Handwritten songs since its release and honestly I miss the old hits. I think my ideal set would be a progression of how far they've come as a band. Opening up with songs from Sink or Swim such as Red in the Morning would be rad. Then Señor & the Queen! Oh gosh, that'll be cool. Increasing song volume by the more recent records would show that as years go by, it's essentially what kind of band Gaslight stands for. Ending off with We're Getting A Divorce, You Keep The Diner for the "stay hungry, live free and do the best that you can" closure would just complete the whole experience.

I would like to see them play Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis,repeatedly, for an hour. Then, they could play Old White Lincoln and call it a night.

'59 Sound 5 year anniversary type deal. The album straight through and then an even mix of Sink or Swim, American Slang and Handwritten.

Ideally, I'd like a set that showcases how great each of their albums are. I chose Howl as an opener because I can picture Alex R. playing that opening riff before the lights go on. As the song kicks in, the energy would blow the roof off the place. Below is my dream setlist. I'd probably go into cardiac arrest if they played something similar to this.

1. Howl
2. The Patient Ferris Wheel
3. The Diamond Church Street Choir
4. We Came To Dance
5. 45
6. Old White Lincoln
7. Film Noir
8. Biloxi Parish
9. Old Haunts
10. Here Comes My Man
11. Miles Davis & The Cool
12. Here's Looking At You, Kid
13. Wooderson
14. Angry Johnny And The Radio (with Brian singing Bon Iver's Blood Bank during the bridge)
15. Mulholland Drive
16. Casanova, Baby!
17. Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts
18. The '59 Sound
19. Great Expectations

Encore:

20. 1930
21. American Slang
22. Misery
23. Blue Dahlia
24. The Backseat

Best closer? Simple: Anything that brings out Tift Merritt.
