See The Hold Steady This Fall

    In support of the recently released Heaven Is Whenever, The Hold Steady will be heading out on their gazillionth tour this fall. Even though you’ve seen them three times before and the ticket prices just keep going up, they still put on one of the best rock shows today, assuming you can sing along to at least a quarter of the songs and you don’t mind getting beer spilled on you a few times. They’ll play a couple shows with the Whigs and the Gaslight Anthem, but will be backed by Jaill and Wintersleep for the majority of the tour. Get saved by rock and roll, again! [Pitchfork]
