Jonathan Richman featuring Tommy Larkins on the Drums

When: Sun., Nov. 20, 8 p.m. 2016

Since the early 1970s, Jonathan Richman has been charming the pants off his audiences with quirky, proto- and post-punk-inspired songs. After fronting the Modern Lovers through the ’70s and ’80s, Richman crystallized his solo sound on his 1992 album I, Jonathan. The album includes Richman’s biggest hit, “I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar.” In 1998, he and drummer Tommy Larkins gained widespread attention for their unconventional role as the Greek chorus in the Farrelly brothers film There’s Something About Mary. Richman has released scads of albums since and is still rocking out at age 65. He plays with Larkins on Sunday, November 20, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

Price: $17/19
