Following last week’s release of Open Door Policy, The Hold Steady have delivered a stunning performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where they ripped through “Family Farm” from an empty Brooklyn Bowl.
The Hold Steady are well known for the infectious energy they bring to their unbelievable live performances, offering up unique ways to connect with crowds. Despite being unable to gather in a crowded concert hall due to COVID-19, The Hold Steady have found a way to capture that feeling with their performance of “Family Farm.”
Their rendition of the Open Door Policy single sees The Hold Steady never wavering in their emotional, energetic delivery.

“Open Door Policy was very much approached as an album vs. a collection of individual songs, and it feels like our most musically expansive record,” frontman Craig Finn explained of the recently released record upon its announcement. “This album was written and almost entirely recorded before the pandemic started, but the songs and stories explore power, wealth, mental health, technology, capitalism, consumerism, and survival – issues which have compounded in 2020.”
