The Hold Steady - Live from Soho

Today marks the official release of the recording of the acoustic set that Eric and I saw back in October by virtue of David hipping us to the show at the last minute.

Let us again pause to give props David-ward.

The Soho set was a pleasantly intimate refresher after a troubling Beacon show the night previous. Seven songs, including a run through the awesome Separate Vacations. If you're not a super fan, this is not especially essential, but it is The Hold Steady for chrissakes, so you can rest assured that it's a pretty fair shade better than a Bright Eyes record or some other such shite. I can't say I wouldn't buy it, buy I can say unequivocally that iTunes Live From Soho would be even better if Franz was in the band.

You can probably figure out where to get this all by yourself.
