Craig Finn at Cabinet of Wonders in October (more by Chris Graham)
The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is releasing his debut solo LP, Cleart Heart Full Eyes, on January 24 via Vagrant. You can stream the single, "Honolulu Blues," below and purchase it on iTunes. The album artwork and tracklist is below too.
When we first announced his solo tour in support of the album, it didn't include any NYC-area dates. He's since added a show on March 1 at Maxwell's. Tickets go on sale Friday (12/16) at noon. Mount Mariah open most of the tour, but no opener has been announced for the Maxwell's show yet.
The Hold Steady play even sooner at Brooklyn Bazaar on December 17 with Titus Andronicus, Wakey Wakey and W/O. Tickets are still available. That's the final night of the three night event which also includes a BV-presented Fucked Up and Dom show.
Craig tweeted that he's "happy to be sharing a 1/24/12 release with John K Samson" of The Weakerthans, who kicked off their run of 4 albums in 4 nights at Bowery Ballroom last night (12/7). More on that later.
