The Hold Steady confirmed as Surly Fest headliners

The band last played here at The Replacements reunion show.

Surly Brewing says its annual Surly Fest will be a "homecoming" this year, as The Hold Steady headline the event on the grounds of its destination brewery.

The band fronted by the Twin Cities-raised Craig Finn, and featuring members all but one of whom have lived in Minneapolis at one point or another, will take to the stage at the Surly Festival Field on Saturday, Oct. 13.

It's part of Surly's wider Oktoberfest celebrations, which kicks off at 10 a.m. in the Beer Hall and Beer Garden, which will include beers, German food and music from Jake Rudh and Transmission.

This part is free to the public, of all ages, though tickets to enter the Festival Field for the Hold Steady-headlined show will cost $40, an 18+ event with Surly promising "a frankly ridiculous amount of beer."

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.

CityPages reports that The Hold Steady hasn't played as a band in the Twin Cities since opening for The Replacements reunion show at Midway Stadium in 2014.

Before that they closed Rock the Garden in 2012, though Finn has played here with his own band on several occasions since then.
