The Hold Steady are my favorite band in the world. About this time last year they re-released a special LP edition of Boys And Girls In America (which is probably my favorite of theirs) that included this map as a bonus. (Ed note: I have a BAGIA re-release LP, but I don’t think I have this map. I’ll have to double-check when I get home, because I really want a copy of this)
The lyrics are plotted in a roughly West-to-East manner, with the Twin Cities metro done last. This is an interesting choice. I wonder how plotting the points in “chronological” order, that is in order by track listing.
