Fronted by Midwestern-raised singer-songwriter Craig Finn, the Hold Steady has always worn its flyover state origins on its sleeve. The group's seminal 2006 release Boys and Girls in America was a Bruce Springsteen-inspired suite of songs about people frustrated with small town life, but unable to escape it. More than a decade later, the group is embracing its past, welcoming instrumentalist Franz Nicolay back into the fold and reissuing it first three records. Finn and company will hold down two nights at Thalia Hall before playing a special show at the Empty Bottle, celebrating the venue's 25th anniversary.
