Ted Leo @ doing karaoke at Studio B in 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)
Ted Leo

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists did a karaoke set at Studio B in December of 2008 with Andrew WK (who did a Q&A show last night).

With their new disc, The Brutalist Bricks, out March 9th, Ted & The Pharmacists are again letting you take the mic with a Record Release Karaoke Party at Knitting Factory Brooklyn the night of its release. Tickets are on sale. ("A list of available songs will be posted at the door, as well as in advance at the new look TedLeo.com.").

The band will also be on Jimmy Fallon the night before, on March 8th. You can still apply to be on the 'band bench' (and for Silversun Pickups and Allman Brothers too).

Ted Leo has a full tour coming up with Obits and Screaming Females (who played Death by Audio last night - 2/23) opening. That includes an April 9th show at Irving Plaza with both those bands. Tickets are still on sale.

Two tracks from Ted's new album - including the bold opener, "The Mighty Sparrow" - are posted above. All Ted Leo tour dates (with openers) below...

Glad to see D.R.I. getting there due. This was the first band I ever saw live way back in 1989. I was in the sixth grade and went with my older brother's friend. It was on the THRASH ZONE tour. Ruled.

The first ever music I purchased were two cassettes, D.R.I's DEALING WITH IT and CROSSOVER. Long live thrash metal.

Great pictures.
Excellent post, thank you very much for taking the time to share with those who are starting on the subject. Greetings

It's been ages since this band played at a decent venue. If they no longer want to play small rooms, can they at least once play at an assigned seating place. Not that I'd be sitting.

i thought it was pretty amazing that these bands brought everyone to their feet in Carnegie Hall. Everyone was there with good vibes celebrating an amazing culture that embraces compassion and tolerance. I have no complaints other than the 2 hipsters behind me who had a comment about everything that was wrong with the venue. Why go?
