The Hold Steady will make it back to the Twin Cities to play a show before the year is up, though the venue is a bit of a head-scratcher: America's best bar-rock band will come through town on November 18 to play slick downtown dance club Epic.
The band will be performing as the headliners at Vita.mn's fifth anniversary celebration, which will also feature a fashion show, DJing by Jake Rudh and the Current, and host Nadine DuBois of Lili's Burlesque.
It will be the Hold Steady's first Twin Cities gig in 2011 (though Craig Finn performed a short solo set at the Fitzgerald back in April
as part of the Wits series) and their first time playing Epic. As Chris Riemenschneider of the Star Tribune notes
, their Twin Cities date comes just three days before Finn and Tad Kubler will head to L.A. to perform in the big Bob Mould tribute concert with the Foo Fighters and others, so in addition to performing some new material off their forthcoming Hold Steady record there's a chance they might even throw in a Hüsker Dü cover or two (pretty please?).
Tickets for the show are $25 in advance and available via Vita.mn's site
. More musical acts will be announced soon.
