On April 7th, The Hold Steady (aka my favorite band of the last five years) will be releasing their first live DVD/CD, A Positive Rage, and we’ve got the exclusive full-song premiere here on the Music Mix. Combining documentary and concert footage from 2006 gigs in London and Minneapolis, Rage is sure to be a handy conversion tool for anyone bent upon spreading the gospel of Craig Finn’s madly poetical antics to those in need. But that’s enough from me — like the man says to his hometown crowd in “Stuck Between Stations,” below, “words won’t save your life.” The Hold Steady, on the other hand, just might. Stay positive!
