Sat., Feb. 9, 8:30 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 10, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Since the mid-'70s Jonathan Richman has defied the adage that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. From his exuberant strumming and pining with the Modern Lovers through his ceaseless touring with drummer Tommy Larkins, Richman continually uncovers new sides of his quirky persona. Although a mature tone has crept into his recent songwriting, his 2010 offering, O Moon, Queen of Night on Earth (Vapor Records), proves that he's still got a playful side.
