The Hold Steady‘s third annual ‘Massive Nights’ holiday run at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl begins this Wednesday (11/28), and they’ve begun revealing (very exciting) openers for the shows.

On night one (11/28), which will see THS playing Stay Positive in full for its 10th anniversary, Ted Leo is opening with a solo set. That’s currently one of just two upcoming shows for Ted (the other being in Providence on Saturday).

On night two (11/29), it’ll be a solo set from Jeff Rosenstock. That’s one of many upcoming dates for Jeff, who also has a BrooklynVegan-presented four-night run at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom in February, where he’ll be recording a new live album (all sold out except for night one).

No word yet on THS’ openers for Friday (11/30) and Saturday (12/1). Tickets for nights one and two are still on sale, and advance tickets for nights three and four are sold out but there will be limited admission at doors.

After the ‘Massive Nights’ run, The Hold Steady have 2019 shows, including other tristate area shows in NJ and CT in May (tickets). They also play Frank Turner’s Boston run. As for Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn, he has a new solo album coming in spring 2019 and he’s going to play it in full at Brooklyn’s Murmurr Theatre in January (tickets). Craig also plays the Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit) tribute in Brooklyn next week (12/5).

Watch The Hold Steady play “Stay Positive” in 2008 and watch solo live videos of Ted Leo and Jeff Rosenstock…
