Drive-By Truckers & The Hold Steady presale tomorrow!

The rumors are true. While this paring might seem odd check this quote from Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn: “Seeing the Drive-By Truckers on the Southern Rock Opera tour was instrumental to me wanting to start a band and play music again. That band is the Hold Steady. This tour brings it full circle, and it will be a pleasure and an honor to be able to share a stage with the Truckers. We’re gonna have a really good time.” I’m sure a beer or two will be swilled onstage. Fans of either band will get a chance to see one or the other headline as they’re taking turns closing the show on what they’re calling the “Rock And Roll Means Well Tour”

The online pre-sale starts tomorrow at 10 AM Eastern time. Click the picture above to buy tickets. To get you in the mood here are some live tunes from both bands:

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
