After nearly three years, The Hold Steady have been announced as part of the bill for the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, held around February each year in the major capitals. This year’s line-up starts with:
GIRL TALK, STEREOLAB, ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI, THE HOLD STEADY, THE DRONES, CUT OFF YOUR HANDS, FOUR TET, TAME IMPALA, EL GUINCHO, JAY REATARD, BURAKA SOM SISTEMA DJ/MC SET, THE TEMPER TRAP, NO AGE, JOHN STEEL SINGERS, CANYONS, PIVOT, PORT O’BRIEN, HOLLY THROSBY, BORN RUFFIANS, MOUNTAINS IN THE SKY, TIM FITE, STILL FLYIN, DAEDELUS…plus more to be announced..
This is what I’ve been waiting for now, for almost three years (I missed their only other shows here, when I was just getting into the group). Will buy for the festival anyway, and hopefully they’ll be doing a sideshow or two as well. Won’t miss that either!
