JOHN WESLEY HARDING’s Cabinet of Wonders… and other EUGENE MIRMAN shows, Josh Ritter, albums & stuff

John Wesley harding

John Wesley Harding will be releasing his latest album, Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead, on March 10 via Popover Corps/Rebel Group. Recorded with backing band The Minus Five (featuring Scott McCaughey and Peter Buck of REM), Who Was Changed is Harding’s first rock album since 2004’s Adam’s Apple. Included with the new record is a live bonus CD, recorded at Brooklyn’s Union Hall on October 27, 2008 with guest duetist Josh Ritter among others.

John Wesley Harding will be hosting a series of unique variety shows, featuring a hand-picked crew from the worlds of music, literature and comedy. The three-show residency will be held at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge on February 11, March 11 and April 15.

The Feburary 11th lineup is:

Jonathan Ames (author, HBO pilot, Bored to Death, with Jason Schwartzman)
Rick Moody (author, The Ice Storm, Demonology, The Black Veil)
Eugene Mirman (comedian, Flight of the Conchords)
Shivaree (musician, Zoë Records)
Carla Rhodes (rock and roll ventriloquist)
P.T. Walkley (songwriter/film composer, Ed Burns collaborator)

Tickets for that JWH show are still on sale.

One day earlier (February 10th) you can catch Eugene Mirman celebrating the release of his new book at The Bell House in Brooklyn. John Oliver, John Hodgman, Kristen Schaal and Paul F. Tompkins are also performing at that show, which is sold out.

One day earlier than that (February 9th) (TODAY!) Eugene Mirman will be performing, for free, again with Kristen Schall, at UCB. It’s all part of Leo Allen‘s 11pm Whiplash show that Zach Galifianakis will also be attending. Info and free tickets HERE.

As stated above, John Wesley Harding will be back at LPR in March and April. So will Eugene Mirman. A video trailer for this week’s show, and the full lineup of all three (including Roseanne Cash, Josh Ritter, and Graham Parker), below…
