After releasing two new songs, The Hold Steady began their second annual run of holiday shows at Brooklyn Bowl last night (11/29). Each night has a different surprise opener, and last night's was Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers. They brought Patterson on stage with them to cover AC/DC's "Ride On" in the encore. They also made the live debuts of their two new songs last night, played a ton of the classic Boys and Girls in America, and more.
The Hold Steady also revealed their new Massive Nights IPA, which was made with Hartford, CT's Hanging Hills Brewing Company. Here's what they say about it:
We brewed Massive Nights IPA to be packed with as much joy as the Unified Scene. At 6.9% ABV and 46 IBU, Massive Nights combines heavy handed additions of Citra and El Dorado to a silky wheat and oat malt bill to form a hazy, fruity and all around enjoyable IPA. Massive Nights IPA is for 4 nights of having every song just right.
Check out some pictures and videos of the show and the beers, and The Hold Steady's night one setlist, below.
The second Massive Night is tonight (11/30) and Cayetana will open (tickets). The run continues Friday (12/1) and Saturday (12/2) -- both of which are sold out but there will be limited number of tickets available at doors (6 PM).
Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is also the latest artist to appear on The Mountain Goats' podcast and contribute a cover to the upcoming All Hail West Texas tribute album. He did "Fault Lines." Listen to his cover and the new podcast episode below.
