The Hold Steady hosted their third annual Massive Nights post-Thanksgiving set of sold out shows at Brooklyn Bowl, kicking things off on November 28th with an opening performance from Ted Leo who also joined them during the encore for a cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Cowboy Song.”

The show was a continuation of their 10th-anniversary celebration of Stay Positive, which they played in full (just like they did when we caught them at White Eagle Hall this summer) along with all the expected The Hold Steady classics you would expect.

Our photographer Brianna DiGioia was there to capture photos from both The Hold Steady and Ted Leo, all of which can be found below along with the setlist.
