The Hold Steady + Art Brut

Sunday, November 4

Emily Kane, meet your new best Hoodrat Friend. Aside from the obvious fact that pairing up two charismatic bands renowned for their joyous and literate take on rock ’n’ roll is damn smart marketing, the real fruit of this union would be a documentary. Oh, to be a fly on those dressing-room walls night after debauched night. The pace of the dialogue between hyperintellectual Hold Steady leader Craig Finn and Art Brut’s self-referential savant Eddie Argos could probably melt a speedometer, and the collective creative energy of such a talented and hilarious bunch is undoubtedly fueling late-night jam sessions on par with Festival Express. Boys, I hope you’re keeping that video camera handy, ’cause I want to see the footage. The Blood Arm open.

Listen to a sample of Art Brut's "Direct Hit."

var so = new SWFObject("", "theSWF", "91", "32", "8", "#FFFFFF" ); so.write( "player" );

Listen to The Hold Steady's "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

var so = new SWFObject("", "theSWF", "91", "32", "8", "#FFFFFF" ); so.write( "player" );
