Hold Steady, My Man

Yes, they are coming back to Columbus. October 27th at the Newport Music Hall. Anybody want to join me and my white-haired Emmylou Harris lookalike for a night of gutter poet/cowgirl beauty queen fun?

I was in Columbus last week visiting my brother and we passed by this venue. It looked pretty cool from the outside. I hope all y'all in Columbus get to this show. The Hold Steady are the absolute best club show going these days (apologies to Lucero, Jesse Malin and The Format).

Will this sell out?

Andy Whitman said...

Trip, I think it's likely that the show will sell out. I saw The Hold Steady at the same venue on St. Patrick's Day. That was a sellout. The upcoming show is on the Saturday night of Halloween weekend. The crazies will be out in force.

Hey Trip, very nice blog, by the way.

Grant, you're in. Sounds fun. Scott, we'll make this work. I look forward to meeting you. Let me get back to you on Dropkick Murphys. I certainly like the band. It's a question of possible previous commitments, and I need to consult with the keeper of the
Whitman schedule.

we may be up for it!

Andy Whitman said...

That's great, Karen. I hope you and Randy can make it.

Can't make it to Columbus, I'm afraid, but I'm delighted to say that these guys are coming to my home town of Knoxville in late October. It'll be my first time seeing my favorite rock band on the planet. Enthused doesn't even begin to describe it.

You know, Andy, you've introduced me to so many great albums and bands, I can't help but gloat about the fact that I've actually been singing this band's praises longer than you have. Neener neener! :-)

Just a quick note for those of you who have expressed interest in attending the Hold Steady concert. I ordered my tickets today (Sunday 8/26) and was informed that there are only limited tickets still available. Since they only went on sale yesterday, I think that means you'd better act fast if you want to go.

Andy Whitman said...

Josh, I'm glad you'll be able to see The Hold Steady in Knoxville.

And I certainly give you credit for introducing me to the music. Very good call.
