The Hold Steady @ Rachel Ray's SXSW 2009 Day Party, originally uploaded by BetweenLoveandLike.
The Hold Steady announced tonight that they will be playing the most awesome Beacon Theater in NYC for the first time on 10/7. The Beacon is a great venue (Leonard Cohen played there on his last tour to give you an idea), so if you get the chance to go, be sure you do.
Presale for the 10/7 date is tomorrow (4/7) at 10am, password "Heaven," here. Public onsale is Friday, 10/9, at 10am. Ticket info for the rest of the dates can be found here. The 4/16 show in Harrisburg, PA is sold out.
What's strange though? No mention of the 4/17 NYC date yet. It was published 4/1, Broadway World, was this your April Fool's Day prank this year??
