Craig Finn is set to perform at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Town Ballroom's Leopard Lounge (681 Main St.).
Formerly of cult Minneapolis rock group Lifter Puller, Finn is better known these days as the frontman/lyricist of the literate bar rockers the Hold Steady.
The passionate musician has been quickly building his solo discography since sharing his debut solo album "Clear Heart Full Eyes" in 2012. Finn released his latest and best solo offering "We All Want the Same Things" in March.
He will be backed by his band the Uptown Controllers for the October gig.
Joining Finn and crew will be songwriter John K. Samson, former lead singer of the beloved Winnipeg indie act the Weakerthans.
Since the Weakerthans disbanded — or at least went inactive — in 2014, Samson has continued to release his own music. His 2012 freshman solo record was followed up last year with the fantastic "Winter Wheat."
Tickets are $28 to $58 and will go on sale at noon Aug. 11 (box office, Ticketfly or charge by phone at 877-987-6487). Further event details can be found here.
