Craig Finn & The Uptown Controllers


Craig Finn, the singer of The Hold Steady, is coming to Chicago with his solo band, The Uptown Controllers.

Finn’s Chicago show is in support of his fifth solo album, A Legacy of Rentals, released in May 2022 to great fanfare. Pitchfork praised it, saying, “The writing remains the main attraction in Finn’s work, and both as a storyteller and a rock songwriter, he has never sounded more in control. From the beginning, he had a gift for meticulous, vivid world-building, and his wordplay has gotten tighter as his subjects have come down to earth.”

While Finn is best known for his work with The Hold Steady, he is a man of many talents. In addition to his music, his book “I Can’t Keep Saying Thank You,” a collection of his song lyrics, was released in 2019. He also recently launched a podcast series, “That’s How I Remember It.” Co-produced and distributed by Talkhouse, the new series features a discussion between Finn and different creators – including musicians, authors, filmmakers, and more.
