Craig Finn at Lincoln Center – 2/3/16
Craig Finn

Although this was a Craig Finn “solo” show, he played with a full band of massively talented session musicians including the man who produced his last solo record playing lead guitar the whole night. I don’t have the name handy of the multi-instrumentalist that Finn had on hand for his brass section, but the guy needs a raise. Whether it was the saxophone or the trumpet (and I think he even had him playing a flute at one point), the man brought an electrifying, jazz-y energy to the whole affair. I got to spend an hour and a half watching world-class musicians ply their trade, and it’s hard to ask for anything more than that. [Baeble Music]

Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn played the ongoing American Songbook series in the Appel Room at Lincoln Center last night (2/3). He was joined by several musicians, including Walter Martin of The Walkmen. Were you there? Pictures are in this post.

Craig’s next stint is opening for Titus Andronicus. He was previously billed for every date on their tour except the NYC show on February 29 at Webster Hall. Not surprisingly, now that the American Songbook show is behind him, he was announced for the Webster show too. Tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

The American Songbook series continues, including Laura Jane Grace on 2/19.
