Past Event Sound Series: The Magnetic Fields: 50 Song Memoir
We're thrilled to welcome back The Magnetic Fields to Pittsburgh, on their three-city limited 50 Song Memoir tour, which chronicles the 50 years of songwriter Stephin Merritt's life with one song per year. The show is performed over two nights (songs 1–25 on night one, songs 26–50 on night two). The band is led by Stephin Merritt, who is widely considered one of the most talented songwriters of this generation. Beyond writing and recording numerous albums, Merritt has also written songs for the books of Lemony Snicket, composed music for stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, and was the subject of the feature documentary Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields.
