Hold Steady Captain Craig Finn rocking the WECC a few years back.
So, yup, the science of deduction ringed true: the Hold Steady are, in fact, making another appearance in Winnipeg, this time moving up a few venues to the Burton Cummings Theatre. They'll be playing at the Burt (nee Walker) on Tuesday, June 19th w/ friend-of-the-blog / local rock stalwart Greg MacPherson. Oh, and tickets will run ya $41.25 inc. taxes & fees with presale getting underway on Tuesday. I'll Tweet the code if/when I get it.
