Craig Finn living room show in Albany

craig finn solo

Craig Finn -- of The Hold Steady -- is set to play a "living room" show in the offices of Merit in Albany January 13. Tickets are $30 and only available online. They are the only admission for the event.

The show is part of a small tour Finn is doing ahead of his new solo album, We All Want The Same Things. Blurbage:

Done in conjunction with Undertow Music Collective, these house shows will be an evening of music and conversation with Craig. Besides playing new songs live for the first time in an intimate setting, Craig will also do casual Q&A sessions with the fans in attendance.

There's a very limited number of tickets for the Albany show, so if you're interested in going, it's a good idea to snag tickets now rather than later. They're a good bet to sell out, and soon.

So there. Only 20 tickets left folks...

When I first saw this opportunity announced on social media, I let out a little yelp of excitement and got the tape measure out to determine if my living room would adequately hold the minimum needed to host this event myself.

Sadly, I suddenly realized that I have pre-existing obligations that weekend that can't be broken, so I won't even be able to attend regardless of location.

For the few lucky enough to attend, I envy you, and stay positive.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
