The Hold Steady

Funny how the Hold Steady’s semi-homecoming gigs each summer seem well-timed to the Twins’ own home stands, this one aligning with the biggest of ’em all (Yankees!). We know where the Brooklyn rockers’ allegiance lies, just as we know where they’re coming from on their first album in four years, “Teeth Dreams,” a return to the punky roots and blurry street scenes of their early-’00s discs but also a new kind of showcase for dueling guitarists Tad Kubler and Steve Selvidge. Their first local date behind the record is also their first time playing the zoo. Michigan openers Cheap Girls recalls melodic ’90s roarers Buffalo Tom. Chris Riemenschneider
