Who: Ladies and gents, this is the party of parties. Frank, local hot dog eatery and music venue, is celebrating five years in Austin with a huge celebration.
What: Frank’s spectacular 5th Anniversary Party, which is a particularly special occasion because of the band playing the big party, The Hold Steady. Yes, that Hold Steady. And this is not the first time front man Craig Finn has graced the stage at Frank; he did a great solo performance there for the Transistor Six series (and your humble Austin Music Minute host was asked to conduct an interview with Finn – probably the nicest fellow on the entire planet, and a joy to speak with.)
When: All goin’ down tonight, people. Doors open at 9 p.m., but you best get their early; it’s a cozy venue that fills up rather quickly. Lansing, MI rockers Cheap Girls open the show.
Where: 407 Colorado, close to 4th St.
Why: The Hold Steady, in such an intimate venue? C’mon now. Happy anniversary, Frank. Recommended.
