Craig Finn

Last week, we announced that Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn added a Maxwell's show (3/1) to his already announced solo tour. The Maxwell's show is part of a longer string of dates that he's tacked on to the end the tour, which also includes Mercury Lounge on February 29. Marcellus Hall opens all of the shows on the newly announced run, except for the 2/27 show live at Drew's house in Ringwood, NJ. Tickets for the Mercury show and the Maxwell's show go on sale Friday (12/16) at noon. AmEx presale for the Mercury show starts Wednesday (12/14) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile catch Craig front his band The Hold Steady at the Brooklyn Bazaar in Williamsburg this Saturday night, one night after Radical Dads play there (with Fucked Up).

Through all the years of seeing Lifter Puller and the Hold Steady play I never really thought Craig was playing much guitar or if he was that volume wasn't very loud. I guess this solo stuff will prove that theory wrong.

i thought we forgot about this band in 2006.

At the show here in Austin this past week it was a full band and Craig didn't play a lot of guitar.

They only played songs from the new album. Some of which sounded really good and some were just pain bad. Overall it was just an ok show.

I do love Craig Finn but as a woman there is something so repulsive about the Hold Steady/ Craig Finn fanbase. A bunch of frat daddy's.

HOLLA! HOLD STEADY ARE THE BUTTER!

3:23: Never too early to forget about a band whose lead singer sounds like he can't get over a cold.
