How is B&N going to prevent this from being a mob scene?

I really don't think they're ready for this...hopefully they've consulted with venues that have run huge names in small settings and hammered out logistics. This could be insane.

more importantly, um, who wants to see a rock show in a book store?

she said "it's good to see you're back in a bookstore band, baby," I said "it's great to see you're still in the bookstores"

"All your favorite books wouldn't seem so well-written, if you were just a little bit more well-read."

I've been tipped that The Hold Steady and Art Brut are in the midst of scheduling a joint fall together. That is going to be one off the hook show. No word on dates yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I get them. Rumor is the tour will run from late September through November.

In related news, The Hold Steady are playing a FREE show at Prospect Park on August 9th with The Big Sleep and The Teenage Prayers. On September 13th, Craig Finn will play a FREE solo show at B&N Union Square. Then on September 17th, The Hold Steady will be joined
