"Killer Parties"
The Hold Steady


The Springsteen-esque Craig Finn, one of the most expressive singers and gifted lyricists of his generation, leads his band The Hold Steady through an impassioned reading of "Killer Parties" in this video clip from a packed Philly show last October, which finds jubilant concertgoers peacefully rejoicing alongside the musicians on stage. The closing track off the band's excellent 2004 debut album, Almost Killed Me, "Killer Parties" includes the following line: "Ybor City is tres speedy, but they throw such killer parties." The Hold Steady headlines Skatepark of Tampa's 15th Anniversary Party, Jan. 19 at Czar Bar in Ybor City.
