The Hold Steady vs. The Fame
MAY 4TH, 2005 VILLAGE VOICE | JUNE 1ST, 2005 NY PRESS
Last month, the Village Voice put a band on their cover for the first time ever (I think I read/heard that). Less than a month later, the NY Press (the other free weekly NYC alternative newspaper) decorated its cover with a band of its own.
