Jonathan Richman @ 2008 Sled Island Festival (more by Rae Holtsabum)
Jonathan Richman

Singers Jonathan Richman and Vic Chesnutt will go out on tour in June. That includes two NYC shows at the Bowery Ballroom - June 16th and 17th. Tickets for both go on sale Friday, March 27th at noon.

Richman and Chesnutt are both touring Europe separately right now. Richman with drummer Tommy Larkins (a pair of videos from their Majorca Spain performance on March 11th, 2009, below) and Chesnutt with Elf Power, the latter supporting their 2008 collaboration Dark Developments on Orange Twin Records - a record that has kept Elf Power + Chesnutt on the road essentially since last fall.

Richman and Chestnut aren't strangers to sharing a stage either - past dates include a 2008 tour with two Music Hall of Williamsburg shows, and a 2005 tour as well.

All tour dates and videos below...

Jonathan Richman - I Was Dancing in a Lesbian Bar (Lloseta Theatre, Majorca, Spain, March 11th, 2009)

Hello,
More good news, if my non-speaking Italian allows me to understand the last question of this Vic Chesnutt interview (
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANnhoQk113M) : among two forthcoming albums by Vic, he recorded one in San Francisco with Jonathan Richman and Tommy Larkins !

Can we please stop it with meh now? We get it, someone out there thinks everything ever is boring. If you think Jonathan Richman is boring by the way, then you haven't seen Jonathan Richman. If you can't spell Jonathan, then "you're not too bright, are you..." indeed.

Not only is he amazing live, he's also super-friendly to the fans after the show.

JR is the greatest. Saw him play a hot (temperature) show at north 6 years ago. So much fun.

JR does not allow air conditioning to be on during his show!

great concert, thanks!

Does anyone know the name of the last song Chestnutt played at BB last night 6/17? I thought it was something like "My New Life". Both performers were on point last night & Tommy Larkin is a great, minimalist drummer who was terrific playing with both as well.
