Hippies and hipsters continued to intermingle and break down party lines on Day Three at Bonnaroo as the Hold Steady took the stage at 4:20, dude, opening up with 'Stuck Between Stations.' "We weren't sure what to expect," frontman Craig Finn said just two songs into their set, joking that he saw a lot of fists in the air "for a bunch of hippies." The band continued to play to the crowd, introducing 'Hot Soft Light' as "a song about getting busted." Dr. Dog, Aziz Ansari and drummer Joe Russo held steady in the wing.
It was a great way for the Hold Steady to close out their tour, in front of a packed audience who knew every word and guitar lick. "We're kind of new to this festival thing," said Finn, suggesting that fests are about uniting folks. To that end, the singer and avid Minnesota Twins fan, offered this up: "Maybe we can all just agree that the Yankees suck." Mission accomplished as both the hipsters and hippies cheered.
