The Hold Steady

My interview with guitarist Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady revealed that the band is putting more thought into its stage show these days. Whether that will muzzle the group's usual electricity remains to be seen tonight at Newport Music Hall, 1722 N. High St., where they'll play with The Whigs and Columbus' own Two Cow Garage. Tickets cost $22 and doors open at 7 p.m.
