We welcome back the highly influential singer-songwriter, Jonathan Richman, on a tour supporting his latest Blue Arrow Records release Sa, an album largely inspired by Indian ragas. The new record marked a reunion with his Modern Lovers bandmate Jerry Harrison, as producer. Richman has been performing consistently over the last 30 years, beginning with his pioneering band, the Modern Lovers, in the early 1970s. The band’s minimalist approach and forthright songs were influenced by The Velvet Underground and are often referred to as “protopunk” and credited for laying the groundwork for punk and new wave.

  • Doors open at 7 p.m.
  • Please note that Jonathan Richman's performance begins at 8:00 p.m.
