"Ted Leo is possibly the most charming person I've ever seen in real life. Hot Tub was amazing tonight." - pete cartwright

Screaming Females at BV SXSW 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Screaming Females

Ted Leo was a special guest at Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen at Littlefield Monday (6/27). According to Nate Buchik, "Last night, Ted Leo said they were performing Tyranny of Distance in its entirety at the South Street Seaport on July 9." That would be appropriate since the classic album turned 10 years old on June 19, but note that we were also told that Ted said he was "PROBABLY" playing the album. We'll let you know if that changes to "definitely." Hot Tub continues every Monday at Littlefield with different special guest comedians and musicians each week.

Ted's free South Street Seaport show is now being opened by fellow New Jerseyans Screaming Females. They just finished up their tour with Against Me! and Lemuria and only have a few other scattered dates at the moment. One of those dates is The Fest 10 in Gainesville, Florida which Ted is also playing (and which is sold out).

Ted recently taped a series of solo performance videos in "Room 205" for Incase. Watch those, with all tour dates and other videos below...

Even though they both played last year at Siren, this is still a cool bonus since 4knots line-up is so weak

Hey Ted, we know you're reading. When's the imaginary reply to an anonymous comment post going to happen on your website?

If Ted Leo is going to play yet another free show to flaunt his punk cred, I hope this means we can look forward to some future public meltdowns because he's pressed by debt and can't pay the bills.

I think it's kind of funny that every screaming female picture is the same

Hey Ted -

How about a warm up gig at Maxwell's? Just sayin...

This should be called the 4 Not (going) festival.

Hey, look, a picture of the chick from screaming females... screaming.
Seriously, how about changing things up once in a while?

Hey 10:43am, instead of complaining about free shows and Ted's punk rock ethics, why don't you tell us what you're doing so right that's helping the world? You're probably a sheep stuck working a job you hate, going through the motions and doesn't give back jack shit to the community.

I also highly doubt Ted is in debt. He's been around long enough and is way past well known to be considered a starving artist. If he was, I wouldn't mind paying a $100 for a ticket to his show just to give back to him for all the sweat and hard work he's put in the past decade.

lol @ 10:46! The picture looks intense and epic but that band really just sucks.

Still waiting on the post about how Bush is playing Bowery Ballroom on 7/28 and Stone Temple Pilots are playing the Williamsburg Waterfront on 7/25.

11:07, usually when musicians resort to playing albums in full, it's an act of desperation. That time has come for Ted Leo.

It's now confirmed he'll be playing Tyranny in its entirety as he just tweeted the news.
