The Hold Steady - Live

The Hold Steady had the largest crowd of the night at Sonic Muse. And while I certainly understand their appeal, what with the drinking and songs about drinking and stuff. I have never been a huge fan. Even so, these guys put on a great live show, even if I did kinds think they were burnt out after Lollapalooza and mailed it in a bit. Check out these pics from their set.


Pearlene sounded great on Sunday at the Sonic Muse festival. Even though I did not hear much new material, the old stuff sounded very crisp and I enjoyed it alot. If you have not already given them a listen, I am attaching some music to sample as well.
