This time, it was Brian Fallon and The Howling Weather who stormed into Toronto to play at a sold out The Danforth Music Hall. It was a busy week; a point that Brian mentioned when he lamented that he'd missed Afghan Whigs and Built to Spill at that very venue the night before. You an me both, Mr. Fallon. You and me both.
We got a solid set of rock tunes from the band, including tunes from The Horrible Crowes, Brian's solo albums of course, and a solo piano version of The Gaslight Anthem's "The 59 Sound" as the first tune of the encore. We also got a couple of covers; namely a track from a very influential album for Brian, Derek and The Dominos' "Bell Bottom Blues" from the landmark Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs and fellow Jersey native Bruce Springsteen's "The Promised Land".
Check out some tunes from the band's set.
