The Hold Steady @ Terminal 5 11/6/08 (more by Chris La Putt)
The Hold Steady

All four of the Hold Steady's scheduled NYC shows, June 8th - 11th, have sold out, though the group's second Music Hall of Williamsburg show (Thursday, June 11th) is part of the Northside Festival, which still has badges available.

Openers for those shows are Right on Dynamite (6/8 @ Bowery Ballroom), Mischief Brew (6/9 @ Bowery Ballroom), Gost Trio (6/10 @ MHOW) and Hype of the States (6/11 @ MHOW).

The Hold Steady's other upcoming dates include them playing as openers themselves for the Counting Crows (in the UK in May) and the Dave Matthews Band (in the US in June).

The band also just announced some new headlining dates including a Friday, July 24th show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 15th at noon.

The Sayreville show is then one day before the Hold Steady play a show further south at the 2009 XPoNential Music Festival. The three days fest runs from July 24-26 at Wiggins Park at the Camden Waterfront. Yeasayer, Peter Bjorn and John, Aimee Mann, and many more artists are on the bill.
