Jesse Malin at The Gates of the West, Camden, Sept 2018


This was a great show at Dingwalls in Camden.  I’ve seen Jesse Malin probably a dozen times stretching back to his earliest solo gigs (I first saw him in a gym hall in Omaha Nebraska when he was touring his first solo record).  He always brings his A game, and this gig was no different.  What was different was that a bunch of the crowd had turned up to hear the mainly old punk guests that performed with Jesse’s band in the second half of the show.  It got a bit rowdy and a quite active moss-pit.  This gig was in aid of the Joe Strummer Foundation.
