Dave Matthews Band + The Hold Steady = BFFs at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, June 17?

So, odder bedfellows have existed, but this alleged show is on par with mods vs. rockers and metalheads vs. punks. According to Pollstar and an email I got from Dave Matthews Band's publicist, hipster barflies the Hold Steady are opening for the massively popular frat-rockers at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Wednesday, June 17. Good for the HS, to maybe grow its fanbase and be seen by a lot of people -- and for DMB, for picking some pretty cool openers; other acts playing with them on the tour include Eli "Paperboy" Reed, the Roots, Femi Kuti and the Avett Brothers. Once this show is confirmed, I'll let you know.

The Hold Steady is also playing the Gargoyle on Monday, April 6, while Reed will be at Off Broadway on Tuesday, March 24.
