Artist Info

The Hold Steady

Formed in 2003, The Hold Steady have released eight albums, numerous singles and played
over 1,000 shows.
The Brooklyn-based band has performed in all 50 states in the USA and throughout Canada,
Europe and Australia. The Hold Steady music has appeared across movies, advertising and TV,
including on Game Of Thrones and Billions, in addition to writing original material for Seth
Meyers cartoon The Awesomes and Meyers' 2019 stand-up comedy special Lobby Baby.
In February 2021, The Hold Steady released their most recent record, Open Door Policy, which
achieved the highest chart position of any The Hold Steady release, debuting #6 on the
Billboard Current Album Chart. Vulture hailed that the record "expands their horizons," and
"gives the Hold Steady new heft and variety without undercutting the sharpness of the hooks or
singer-guitarist Craig Finn's heart-wrenching novelistic lyricism."
Throughout 2022 the band has continued their extended multi-show runs in cities across the
globe, including The Weekender in London and appearances in Toronto, Melbourne (Australia),
 
Nashville, Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles. The Hold Steady have done the post-
Thanksgiving Massive Nights weekend in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Bowl every year since 2016.
 
The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz
Nicolay (keyboards, vocals), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).

Wussy

Wussy are one of the most celebrated independent bands in the American Midwest, a group whose idiosyncratically thoughtful songs and atmospheric, forceful guitar attack have won them a fervent cult following and a growing stack of rave reviews. Built around the sweet and sour mix of vocalists Lisa Walker and Chuck Cleaver, Wussy came together in 2001 when the two singers and songwriters casually performed together at an event in their native Cincinnati, Ohio, and soon the duo expanded into a full band. In 2005, Wussy released their debut album, Funeral Dress, and while they toured and recorded at a casual pace, between excellent reviews and positive word of mouth, albums like 2009's Wussy, 2011's Strawberry, and 2014's Attica! found an audience as the band began to edge out of the indie rock underground towards the boundaries of mainstream recognition.
