Stuck Between Stations


(The Hold Steady at the Common Grounds, Gainesville FL, 2/8/06)

Conversation on Pitchfork between The Hold Steady's Craig Finn and Art Brut's Eddie Argos:

Finn: Have you played Florida? We've never done Miami. I always think it's gonna be weird. I think maybe in the 70s or 80s, if you were weird, you went to California, if you were a "fringe person". Now, I think you go to Florida. Florida's some real weird people.

Argos: They're proper music geeks there. They brought me, like, Jonathan Richman bootlegs.
