It's Time for Jonathan Richman (Twice This Weekend)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Richman, taking the "dour" out of troubadour.

We highlighted the Saturday Dec. 1 appearance by the original Modern Lover Jonathan Richman at {open} in Long Beach in our Calendar this week, but somehow forgot to include that the charming 56-year-old troubadour (and one of punk's progenitors) will also be playing Detroit Bar Sunday Dec. 2. Richman is still a delightful entertainer, but he doesn't like to bring the noise anymore. My guess is your shouts for “Roadrunner” will go unheeded, though you might have better luck requesting “Don't Let Our Youth Go to Waste.”
