Craig Finn performs with Mount Moriah, Sad Baby Wolf, and Ash Reiter as part of the Noise Pop festival on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the Bottom of the Hill. 8 p.m., $15.
Dear fans of the Hold Steady and (the now-legendary) Lifter Puller: Stay positive, for the ever-charismatic Craig Finn is once again gracing a San Francisco stage — and this time, he'll be all by his lonesome. So grab your whiskey, grab your ginger, and settle in to hear material from Finn's slightly less raucous (but no less compelling) new solo album, Clear Heart Full Eyes. And fear not: the one-liners and witticisms will likely be as sharp as always.
