Full Show Friday: The Hold Steady 5-3-09 Rockpalast

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...The Hold Steady!

So for the last few Full Show Friday's we haven't exactly picked out favorite bands, we decided to change that this week. The Hold Steady are one of our all time favorites. This show is from 2009 when Franz was still in the band playing Keyboards and while we have seen them in the new formation a few times we still dig on this lineup of the band the most.

Also with my sisters birthday yesterday, this is small present as we both have had blindingly good times rocking out with and meeting the fellas in tHS. We recognize Craig Finn isn't for everyone but he is in our opinion one of the top 3 lyricists in rock and roll today, and this is one of the few bands who we will sing along (poorly) too when we are at their live show. We missed their most recent show in NYC so this will have to make up for it.
