The Hold Steady have gone from Minneapolis bar rats to one of the country’s most acclaimed rock bands in a surprising amount of time. Now, the band are back after a four year hiatus with their newest album, Teeth Dreams. Our own Carianne Hixson praised the album, saying that Craig Finn’s gifts as a lyricist are as sharp as they’ve ever been. Live, the band are a true force to be reckoned with; they perform with the same passion and intensity that their fans bring to every show. They’ll be bringing that intensity to an all-ages crowd at Chicago’s Concord Music Hall. To purchase tickets, visit the Concord Music Hall’s website.
