I love The Hold Steady.  I love this album.  It is one of the best albums of the decade (if not all time) and you should go buy it.  Why, you ask?  Well, because today it is only $1.99 on AmazonMP3!!!!  Craig Finn is one of the best songwriters out there, so you should give them a chance.  By the way, for those of you who go to Calvin, you should go see them at the Festival of Faith and Music.

No, not the government campaign or the Barenaked Ladies song.  They’re a really cool new band and I’ve been digging their album, Wagonwheel Blues.  Great stuff.  I’m excited to see them at the Festival of Faith and Music.  Here’s a video:

Calvin College Student Activities Office made one the best decisions ever.

After a relatively uneventful (in my opinion) season of concerts, Calvin College SAO have finally stepped it up.  I was hoping that they would blow my mind with the lineup for the Festival of Faith and Music and although they haven’t announced all of the concerts yet, having The Hold Steady play makes the whole year feel better.  Not only are they one of the best bands in America right now, their album Stay Positive is a serious contender for my favorite album of the year.
