The Hold Steady celebrate Boys and Girls in America with three night stand at Brooklyn Bowl‏

The Hold Steady has announced a very special series of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their classic third album, BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA. The New York-based rock ‘n’ roll band will perform the album in its entirety over three extraordinary nights at their home borough’s Brooklyn Bowl, slated for December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Support will come from a different special guest each night.

The newly announced dates mark The Hold Steady’s only official headline shows of 2016. The band will also perform BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA in its entirety at this year’s Riot Fest, set to rock Denver, CO’s National Western Complex on Saturday, September 3rd and Chicago, IL’s Douglas Park on Saturday, September 17th, as well as at Toronto, ON’s Toronto Urban Roots Fest (TURF) on Friday, September 16th. BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA celebrations will continue through October 2017, spanning the entirety of the album’s 10th anniversary year. All announced BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA performances will see The Hold Steady joined by keyboardist Franz Nicolay.

Members of the official Hold Steady fan community, The Unified Scene, will receive an exclusive pre-sale password within the next 24 hours, with BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA Celebration ticket pre-sales running Wednesday, July 20th at 10 am ET through Thursday, July 21st at 11:59 pm; all remaining tickets will then be released to the general public on Friday, July 22nd at 10 am. Complete details and ticket information HERE.

Released October 3rd, 2006, BOYS AND GIRLS IN AMERICA officially affirmed The Hold Steady as one of the most singular outfits in rock ‘n’ roll history, equal parts hard-traveling bar band, sonically adventurous indie rockers, and master chroniclers of the lost and broken-hearted. Songs like “Chips Ahoy!” and “Stuck Between Stations” proved transcendent modern rock classics, fueled by epic hooks, massive choruses, and singer/guitarist Craig Finn’s utterly unique lyricism and intensely detailed songcraft.

The Hold Steady’s sixth and most recent studio album, TEETH DREAMS, was released in 2014 on their own Positive Jam label via Washington Square/Razor & Tie.
