Craig Finn actually did three straight nights at First Avenue if you count a surprise appearance at the Tribute to the Replacements on Friday. Though our reviewer for Saturday's Hold Steady show said that Finn and company took a little while to get going, he sure was ready to go for a reverent take on "Skyway."
For those who didn't attend, a pretty nice video of the performance of the Pleased to Meet Me gem surfaced on YouTube. We have it posted below along with some other highlights from the night.
