COSTA MESA — The Brooklyn-based band The Hold Steady, which appeared recently on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Colbert Report," will make a stop here Wednesday in their nationwide tour.
Between shows in Santa Cruz and Pomona, The Hold Steady will satiate their Orange County fans by performing at Detroit Bar, the indie venue.
Frontman Craig Finn is excited to play to a devoted crowd that hasn't seen them in a while. Although The Hold Steady tends to include Los Angeles and San Diego in their line-ups, it's been a few years since Orange County fans have glimpsed the vocally raw rock band.
"We played Detroit Bar in '07," Finn said. "I barely remember it. I think that's the only Orange County show we've done. We've mainly done L.A. and San Diego. We're taking it closer to other people."
For those that don't recognize the name, The Hold Steady has made seven years in the business look like a lifetime. Only after three years on the scene, they were named Blender magazine's 2006 band of the year and were the first rock band to land the cover of the Village Voice in 15 years.
