Here’s an amazing way for fans of lyrical indie/punk to celebrate Halloween: Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn and former Weakerthans frontman John K Samson are teaming up for a show at NYC’s City Winery. Tickets will be on sale soon.

It doesn’t appear that either musician has a tour announced. UPDATE: The City Winery show is part of a full tour for Craig and John. All dates are listed below.

Craig Finn has other upcoming shows/events too, including two others in NYC. He’s opening The War On DrugsTerminal 5 show on 9/19 (tickets), and he’ll be in conversation at Le Poisson Rouge‘s Friday Night Jam on August 18 with Rabbi Dan Ain and Relix’s Mike Greenhaus (tickets). He also plays the Pizza Luce Block Party in Minneapolis.

Earlier this year, Craig Finn released his new solo album We All Want the Same Things, and he celebrated with a release show at City Winery.

Last year, John K Samson released the great solo album Winter Wheat.

The Hold Steady are doing a Brooklyn Bowl run for the holidays, like they did last year (tickets).
