Rockers The Hold Steady recently completed a series of three shows in Chicago that marked the band’s first performances of 2017. The Hold Steady worked a tribute to an acclaimed Windy City rock band into each of the concerts including the debut of a Wilco cover on Friday night.
On Thursday, Craig Finn & Co. fit a cover of Cheap Trick’s “Southern Girls” into their encore at Thalia Hall. The Hold Steady was joined by Jason Narducy and Kelly Hogan for a version they changed to “Chicago Girls” in honor of the run. Friday saw the band return to Thalia Hall, where their encore featured a debut cover of Wilco’s early gem “I’m The Man Who Loves You.” Finn capably handled vocals on the Jeff Tweedy-penned classic. The Empty Bottle hosted The Hold Steady on Saturday for a show that included Styx’s “Too Much Time On My Hands” within the encore.
