Ted Leo @ BV-SXSW 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Ted Leo

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists will headline the official "kick off show" for the previously mentioned 4knots Music Festival. The free show takes place July 9 at South Street Seaport, a week before the 4Knots festival happens on the same outdoor Manhattan stage. 4Knots aside, this is a good old fashioned free Ted Leo show at the Seaport, an old tradition.

Ted will also play a few more shows at the end of July, including the mainstage at XPoNential Music Festival in Wiggins Park in Camden, NJ on July 23.

Ted just played the 'Our Band Could Be Your Life" tribute this past Sunday at Bowery Ballroom. Check out another video of him covering Minor Threat and more dates below...

Excited to continue my tradition of seeing Ted Leo at the Seaport and then bitching about the sound the whole time.

Ted Leo playing a free show? This never happens!!!

Ted Leo is actually "bigger" then the 4Knots headliner. What a failure that "fest" will be.

I only go to see Ted Leo shows that require human skulls as payment for entry. I've seen him eleven times!

Is Leo loaded or something? How can he afford to play all these free shows?

Free show does not mean the artist is not paid.

Odds that a warm up Maxwell's gig will happen the Friday before? Look at the history kids...

Jesus 11:29. Really?

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 11:36 AM

yeah really, you people think these artists are doing free shows out of the goodness of their hearts? maybe that's where all the cynicism on the BV boards comes from

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 11:37 AM

Yes, 11:36. It took a lot of effort to get those skulls, but that's a story for another time.

Posted by Señor | May 25, 2011 11:55 AM

Oh, that probably wasn't for me. In any case, yes, bottom line, I have skulls.

Posted by Señor | May 25, 2011 11:56 AM

Yes, we all know that THEODORE FRANCIS LEO hails from a mansion on a hill, with a silver spoon in hand. He does not need any $$.

Señor, are you Ed Gein incarnate?

Is Ted Leo the only band playing?

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 12:57 PM

Have they announced that Black Angels are "headlining"?

"We ARE! Minor Threat! We ARE! Minor Threat!"
I love that song.
