We are about to make our annual visit to a rock concert. We do that every time The Gaslight Anthem plays Los Angeles. Three years ago, we went to a scuzzy bar in Glendale and they were the opening act. Then it was the Knitting Factory, and then the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theatre. This year, they are headlining at the Wiltern. I e-mailed The Nephew and asked if we might have backstage passes. At the Knitting Factory, we got stuck in the mosh pit and we haven't yet recovered from the experience. He replied that our VIP passes would be at the box office, and would we like to attend the taping of the Tonight Show on Friday? The Gaslight Anthem will be the musical act that night. You bet we would like to. So tune into Jay Leno on Friday night to see a great rock band. Pay particular attention to The Nephew on drums. And look for two older, but very enthusiastic, fans in the studio audience.
