The Hold Steady: Live from the Artists Den

My wife was kind enough to record The Hold Steady’s appearance on Live from the Artists Den, a program on PBS that I’d never seen.

The band played to what looked like a fairly full house in the Old Emigrant Savings Bank Building in New York, a structure that has been granted landmark status by the city.

I was hoping to find embeddable video on the Artists Den site and, waddya know, there it was. Though the band’s rendition of Slapped Actress – my favorite song on Stay Positive – was tamer than I would have liked, this version of Constructive Summer gets a thumbs up.
