Watch The Hold Steady Play Conan

Since approximately 2008, Craig Finn’s been sounding less and less like the crazy drunk guy accosting you on the street and more and more like the singer of an actual rock band (and a huge one at that). But that doesn’t mean he can’t still bring the whole madman-poet thing, as anyone who’s seen the Hold Steady live can attest. Last night, they stopped by Conan to play “I Hope This Whole Thing Didn’t Frighten You,” the first single and opener from their great return-to-form Teeth Dreams, and you can watch the video of Finn gesticulating wildly below.

Teeth Dreams is out now on Washington Square.
