Definitely hitting the Cleveland show for sure!  It will be my wife's first time seeing them!   :beer:

They also added a couple other So. Cal shows around Coachella, too.

I saw them again Sunday night in Brooklyn.  Great show as always.  They played two hours, and it seemed like it went by in a flash.  The intro/build up to Under The Pressure was incredibly cool and long.

I was there also and it was a great show.  Under the Pressure is so epic live.  Strangest Thing is still my favorite from the new album and they killed that one too.  Brought out Craig Finn for a cover of Warren Zevon - Accidentally Like a Martyr, that was cool to see... plus Craig said a new Hold Steady album is almost done!

I was hoping NYCtaper was at the Brooklyn show but they were not. BUT they said there was a stealth taper there so it had me hitting etree up to see if it was posted there. It was not. BUT, I did come across this GORGEOUS recording from late last year that took place in Amsterdam:

Monster back to back Thinking of a Place & Under Pressure.

enjoy.

(edit: looks like this is the same show that e-stone shared)
Don't you ever turn it off

Looks like Adam got himself a Flying V!  Sweet!  And he's wearing a Bob Dylan Time Out Of Mind t-shirt (the album title was reportedly taken from the Warren Zevon song Accidentally Like A Martyr that both Dylan and WOD have covered). 

Really hoping to hear You Don't Have To Go next week.

Nice trivia regarding the shirt Shug.  He was wearing the same shirt in Brooklyn (although I was too far away to see what exactly was on the shirt and wouldn't have known those fact anyway).  Enjoy the AZ shows.

I'm going to check that audio parkervb and am pretty sure that exact show is pro shot video on You Tube that I've seen.

Seems like we have a lot of overlap of shows.  I hope to catch you at one of them down the road.

LOVE that he gives NYCtaper a shout-out! A great live music site and contributor to the music scene in NYC

Ohhh awesome.  I'll give this a watch.  Everyone check out the encore, it was really killer.  And you're right, NYCTaper has supplied me with so much music over the years.

One of the best (if not the best), fan shot combo of video and audio I've ever seen.  I would see these guys again and any and every time I can.  I doubt they'll be playing these small venues in the future though.
