The Hold Steady Opening for Dave Matthews Band?

Wait, what? The Hold Steady, beloved hipster bar band, sharing a stage with unrepentant frat-rock douches Dave Matthews Band? It's happening in St. Louis, reports our sister paper, Riverfront Times. It's too late to call Live Nation, and the listing for Dave at Cricket Wireless doesn't say anything about The Hold Steady, but we'll keep you posted.

Can you imagine if Hold Steady fans actually pay to see that show? The tension during the 8-minute version of "Jimi Thing" will be unbearable!
