Watch The Gaslight Anthem's Hour-Long <i>Letterman</i> Performance

Soulful New Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night to perform as the musical guest. Normally this would mean playing a single song to wrap up the show, but The Gaslight Anthem didn’t stop there; they performed for an entire hour, playing songs from their catalog as well as a number of cuts from their forthcoming release, Handwritten. For an encore, they covered The Who’s “Baba O’Reilly.”

The CBS telecast didn’t feature The Gaslight Anthem’s entire performance, of course, but you can stream the whole thing right here. Handwritten is set to be released July 24 on Mercury Records.
