Ted Leo says a guest will be at Maxwell’s on NYE; Obits opening Bell House show & playing March dates too
Ted Leo at Shea in November (more by Guy Eppel)
According to Ted, there are only a few tickets left for the Maxwell’s show and they’re going fast. He also mentions that a “*Special Very Exciting* GUEST” will be there. Who do you think it is? If you’re going, please say hi to this person who tweeted at Ted that they’re “going alone so a ‘hi’ would make their night.”
Comedian Kurt Braunohler opens both shows. I wonder if he’ll also end up at Maxwell’s at all this week for Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah shows. I wonder if Ted will? Say “hi” to Kurt too if you go.
Obits open the Bell House show and will also play NYC during a short run of dates in March with UK band Fists at Cake Shop on March 17. Tickets are on sale now (yes, advanced tickets for Cake Shop!). All dates are listed below.
Ted’s other band, Citizens Arrest, had to cancel their ABC No Rio show which would have went down this past Saturday (12/17) but Omegas, Mind Eraser, and Night Birds still played the venue. Check out pics from that show HERE.
