NEWS: The Hold Steady tonight in SLC

If you get a chance tonight, you should definitely go see The Hold Steady perform at The Urban Lounge in Salt Lake. I've never seen these guys, but from the concert footage I've seen and the reviews I've read, they put on a powerful, maybe even life-changing, rock and roll show. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it tonight (read: I'm poor), but if you can, please go! You'll be happy you did.

If you can't make it, and you happen to be in Provo, here's an option that might be more in your price range (it's in mine). Adding Machines is having their CD release show tonight at Muse Music, and admission's just $5, with a CD included. It'll be a great local show.

The song below is off last year's amazing Stay Positive, an album I didn't get turned onto until a couple months ago. This is music for people who still believe rock & roll can save the world. Enjoy.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
