The Hold Steady: After all these years, still holding steady for Ybor City




It's been three years since The Hold Steady last played Ybor City. What took them so long? We know it's tres speedy and all, but c'mon, Craig Finn, you above all people know that they throw such killer parties.

If that last line made any sense to you, you must be familiar with the indie heroes' long history with Ybor City. Finn has name-dropped Tampa's party district in multiple songs, and since 2006, they've played four shows there. Their fifth will come on Saturday, when The Hold Steady headline the inaugural Guavaween Music Festival. (Click here for the details on the show.)

Longtime Hold Steady fan Justin George decided to break down the group's love for Ybor City. Click here to get the full scoop.
