If you’re East Coast-based like us, it’s likely that you’re fully focused on the approaching weather. Hurricane Sandy is like the Sandy at the end of Grease–the one with the crazy leather pants and cigarette? Do you understand our stress now? To help get through the storm, we’ve put together a playlist full of Sandy-inspired songs for all you Spotify users out there: (Rock You Like A) Hurricane Sandy: Get Through The Storm With Some Jams.
Minneapolis-bred but Brooklyn-based rock band The Hold Steady have earned themselves a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most dynamic live acts of the last five years or so, thanks to their combination of massive riffs and the can’t-take-your-eyes-off-him stage presence of lead singer Craig Finn. This Saturday night, September 17, the band is headlining Eventbrite’s Concert Confidential show at the Beekman Beergarden in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport. The event will not only benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, but attendees will also have the option to make an additional donation to one of the worthiest causes we can think of at the door. Best of all? There are a limited amount of free tickets available now! So snag some tickets, order yourself up a few “double whiskey coke no ices” while you’re there, and have fun with one of the best rock bands on the scene these days. It’s all for a good cause!
