THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM

Thursday: After a very sold-out show at the Fine Line two weeks before their album dropped last summer — and a day after their bus went kaput in North Dakota — these hard-working Jersey boys are finally rolling back around to play a room more their size. Or at least this one didn’t sell out quite so fast. Despite their sleepless night trying to make the gig, the punky and anthemic rockers put on a visceral show at the Fine Line, with the then-unreleased new songs earning as much love from fans as the favorites from their breakout 2008 album, “The ’59 Sound.” Fellow Garden State punks the Bouncing Souls and Cory Branan open. (8:30 p.m. Thu., First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls. 612-338-8388. Sold out.)
