As we speak: The Hold Steady show at the Paradise, Boston, MA

The awesome Heather over at Fuel/Friends posted this note yesterday about The Hold Steady doing a free show tonight in Boston. A probable mob scene as you could well imagine...in fact, as of noon today, an awesome writer friend and SXSW compadre Mayer said he was going and that "Last I checked they had nearly 2000 rsvps for a 650 capacity club..."

Mayer sent this a few minutes ago from the show.... yup, crowded. But remind me to see a show at this club, the sight lines look awesome!
