Attention, all fans of 1970s proto-punk band the Modern Lovers: former member/guitarist/singer Jonathan Richman will be gracing the stage at Detroit Bar. Yes, the Jonathan Richman—eccentric man-child, talented musician and writer of such gems as “Pablo Picasso” and “Egyptian Reggae.” Oh, who are we kidding? He’s the guy from the 1998 hair-gel-infused comedy There’s Something About Mary . Remember the man with the guitar who would appear between scenes like a character out of a Greek chorus and sing directly into the camera? Here’s your shot to see a genuine underground icon.
