On Thursday, July 17th, Music Saves is hosting a pre-show tailgate party at The Beachland Tavern prior to The Hold Steady show taking place later that evening in the Ballroom. There will be food, folks, fun, drink specials, and a very special guest DJ, me. I don’t want to give too much of my set away, but you can expect to hear punk rock, garage rock, heavy rock, college rock, modern rock, alt rock, indie rock and just plain rock from The Sixties through today. The fun starts at 6:30, and as this is a Hold Steady show, where the booze is sure to flow freely, you’ll want to get in that request for your post Hold Steady show vacation day soon.
