Brian Fallon at the Jefferson Theater

I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life

Without any knowledge of who Brian Fallon was (former lead singer of the Gaslight Anthem) I last-minute agreed to photograph the show, anticipating staying for the first few songs then leaving. I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself wanting to stay to hear the whole set, captivated by Fallon's joyous and zealous person. As a solo artist used to the affirmation of the big band name, his air of confidence despite the anonymity he now assumes was both admirable and remarkable.
