Stephin Merritt talked Magnetic Fields on WFMU (listen) ++ win tix to Apollo shows

Stephin Merritt continues to tour The Magnetic Fields‘ 50 Song Memoir opus, in which he wrote a song about every year of his first five decades of existence. With a theatrical stage show, each city of the tour gets two nights — night 1 being the first 25 songs; night 2 being the other 25 — and it stops in NYC for performances at the historic Apollo Theatre on June 15 & 16. Tickets are still available but if you’d like to go for free we’re giving away a pair of tickets for both nights. Enter our contest below. After the Apollo shows, the tour hits Pittsburgh, and Toronto. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Merritt stopped by WFMU on Wednesday (5/16) to talk with DJ Irwin Chusid about 50 Song Memoir, the tour and more. The show also featured lots of Magnetic Fields songs, plus other Merritt projects like The Sixths, The Gothic Archies, and Future Bible Heroes. You can listen to the whole thing here.
