Gig of the fortnight: The Hold Steady

February 10th – The Academy – €27.50

Formed in 2003, it wasn’t until three years later that this Brooklyn-based band became known in Ireland with the release of Girls and Boys in America – earning them a top spot at Oxegen amongst other prestigious events. In support of most recent album Heaven Is Whenever, The Hold Steady play the Academy for their first Irish date since the departure of keyboardist Franz Nicolay. Head down to the gig for a near-guaranteed evening of fantastic, consistently anthemic rock music – just try to resist singing along, nobody likes a guest vocalist.
