Michael Hann: The Gospel of The Hold Steady

October 8 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


An oral history, based on interviews with everyone who has played in the band, and those who have worked with them over the course of their career, The Gospel of the Hold Steady addresses all the triumphs and setbacks of The Hold Steadyโ€™s career in the bandโ€™s own wordsโ€”from high times to near deaths, from the brink of splitting to their current renaissance. The volume also includes over 200 photographs and images.

The Gospel of The Hold Steady is completed by essays about Americaโ€™s greatest bar band by writers Rob Sheffield, Laura Barton, Isaac Fitzgerald, and Michael Hann, as well as the thoughts and memories of โ€œThe Unified Sceneโ€โ€” the fans who have helped define the bandโ€™s identity over the years. This is a book for everyone who loves The Hold Steady, and anyone who understands that the magic of rock โ€™nโ€™ roll happens on a stage in a small room, with voices raised from the crowd.

This event includes a reading and signing by the author.
