    Lead singer Craig Finn of Hold Steady performs at the Virgin Mobile FreeFest on August 30, 2009 in Columbia, Maryland.

    Just a month before the debut of their newest album, “The Hold Steady” took the stage at Toad’s Place in New Haven.

    The Brooklyn, New-York-based band was performing live for just the second time since losing a founding member of the band, Franz Nicoly, who resigned last fall.

    Saturday night’s show is described as a typical Hold Steady show; joyous, life-affirming, redemptive according to Spinner.com.

    The band’s new album, "Heaven is Whenever," will be its fifth. They hit the road, starting today with concert stops in South Burlington, Vermont and Northampton, Massachusetts."
