The Hold Steady / Art Brut
with The 1990s
WIN TICKETS to this show!The all-too-perfect pairing of The Hold Steady and Art Brut teams up two high-energy rock bands with speak-sing frontmen who relate often humorous commentaries about pop culture and misguided youth. The Hold Steady have enjoyed a measured ascension from obscure Top Ten-list crashers to cult underground faves, developing into a modern-day E-Street Band or Thin Lizzy with anthemic pub sing-alongs. Art Brut was tagged by NME as part of the "art wave" scene that includes Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party, but the band's scene-deprecating sense of humor and Sex Pistols-informed swagger distinguishes them from the pack.
