The Hold Steady play at The Pour House with The Loved Ones on Sunday (August 10) at 9 p.m.

The stop in Charleston is part of the tour to promote their new album Stay Positive. Tickets are available for $15.

Pitchfork liked their new album pretty well giving it a rating of 8.4, saying:
While its title and lyrics often make Stay Positive sound like a darkest-before-the-dawn kind of record, the themes Finn keeps returning to-- skipping town, starting over clean, resurrection-- all speak to the redemptive power of second chances. When the Hold Steady plead with you to "stay positive," and you consider their unlikely and continued ascendancy, you could do worse than take them at their word.

The Charleston City Paper also has a write-up and interview with the band.

Here's a the video for their song Don't Look Down off the new album:
