A Holiday Case of the Fridays

It’s a short holiday week, kids, and the turkey countdown has begun. But keep in mind, there’s plenty of music to be had after the stuffing and mashed potatoes are finished. We kick things off some tight, catchy, modern guitar rock from Kill The Alarm (formerly Granian). If you like what you hear, they’ll be at Jammin Java this Friday, November 24th w/ Niki Barr and Getaway Car.

And we close out this special holiday edition of ACOTF with “Southtown Girls,” by The Hold Steady. It’s got a cool a cappella vocal intro which erupts into full guitar and rock organ goodness. And I’m digging Craig Finn’s swaggering, distinctive vocals. So if you like what you hear, The Hold Steady will be at the Black Cat Saturday, Nov 25th.
