The Hold Steady | Thanks for listening, thanks for understanding.

Hello Everyone! We’re coming up on the most wonderful time of the year - the 2023 Edition of MASSIVE NIGHTS at Brooklyn Bowl. This year it happens Wednesday, November 29 through Saturday, December 2. We’re so excited to be concluding THS 20 with the annual event that has come to define all of the great elements of The Unified Scene and the THS community. As is standard, we’ll have the usual array of ticket options, including a limited number of 4-day passes, a merch bundle add-on and soundcheck/happy hour event. However, this year we’ll only be doing one (1) soundcheck/happy hour, on Friday, December 1.

We will be doing something new this year called FIRST NIGHT WEDNESDAY, a live podcast event to be held at The Wythe Hotel on Wednesday, November 29 from 5-7pm. This will be a pregame broadcast of sorts: we’ll be talking to the band members and special guests about Massive Nights past, present, and future. This will be a special way to kick off Massive Nights 2023, and we hope you’ll join us. First Night Wednesday will be available as an add-on for those who purchase 4-day passes, an extra something for your unwavering loyalty. A limited amount of the First Night Wednesday tickets will be available as an add-on for Wednesday night stand alone ticket purchases.

.As always, we’ll have different openers each night, a THS beer and other themed-libations at the BB bar, special event merch, and lots of surprises. And if you're traveling from out of town, make sure to check out the hotel discounts being offered by Wythe Hotel and The Hoxton to THS fans during Massive Nights week.

We're so excited to see you all in Brooklyn!

Viva Las Vegas - We are back from Sin City and we can report a fine time by all! Our first time back in the desert in almost a decade and it was excellent. A bit of a recap: Friday night we kicked it off with two guided tours of @thepunkrockmuseum. We led two different groups through the new-ish museum holding artifacts and ephemera from all eras of punk rock worldwide. Some of our favorite relics included a bag of weed owned by Joe Strummer, Dee Dee Ramone’s wedding ring, & some cool musical equipment - Johnny Thunder’s guitar and Bill Stevenson’s drum kit. It’s a very cool space and it’s going to keep growing. After the show we retired to the bar area to mingle with some drinks under the old Triple Rock Social Club sign that’s been retired there. A stellar night. Saturday we were back at @bbowlvegas. As they say: everything is bigger in Las Vegas. The night kicked off in awesome fashion- @builttospill opened with an amazing set. Doug Martsch is a mind-blowing guitarist and BTS ripped through a lot of their classic songs. None of us had seen the newest incarnation of the band, and we were super impressed. A set for the ages & we were all pretty psyched to meet Doug backstage too. We came on to the Dead Kennedy’s version of “Viva Las Vegas” and started off with “Hornets! Hornets!”. A special shout out to 9 year old Brendan in the front row center, who brought a special energy to the show. A thrilling return for us. Sunday we woke up to the pleasure of early NFL football, & some food and bowling back at @bbowlvegas. A ton of fun bowling with the fans & while maybe no one in the band showed themselves to be exceptional, Franz took the crown as the best scoring THS bowler. Such a great reminder of the THS community on display. Lastly, we went to the awesome @thewritersblocklv and did a book event for our book. It was expertly moderated by fantastic noir writer @todgoldberg, who was really funny & professional. We answered some questions, laughed a lot, and signed some books. Very cool ending to the official festivities. Some of us ended up at the Sphere for U2 that evening. Perhaps when we come back to Vegas we try that venue next? We’ll have to see…. THS
