The concert Marissa and I went to on Friday night might be my favorite one ever-- The Hold Steady played every song that I'd been hoping they would, and their set was almost two hours long. It was absolutely fantastic. The opening band, Murder by Death (which does not give any sort of accurate idea of what their music sounds like), was so good! Here are two of my favorites that they played on Friday. The video of "King of the Gutters, Prince of the Dogs" was actually taken on Friday, so you'll hear exactly what we heard.
They're another one of those bands whose studio stuff is good, but get to another level of energy live. (Also, the singer is super-cute, I do so love a man in a western-style shirt.)
