Ted Leo (Solo) at Maxwell's, June 21



(Ted at Maxwell's, June 2008, photo taken from musicsnobbery.com)

As you've probably read elsewhere, Hoboken's venerable Maxwell's, one of our favorite live music venues in this country or any other, is scheduled to close their doors at the end of July.  The club's role in the development of many Matador artists & alumni cannot be overstated. Also -- we had a great time there. Almost always.

Ted Leo will be making his final Maxwell's appearance on June 21, with support from Shellshag.  Tickets are on sale here.

In addition, Ted, AC Newman, Jennifer O'Connor, Doug Gillard, Home Blitz and a long list of grade-A talent are taking part in a tribute to the recently deceased Scott Miller (Game Theory/Loud Family) at the Cake Shop (NYC) on June 29, with proceeds going to The Scott Miller Memorial Fund. If you cannot attend, donations are accepted here.

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - New US Dates In CITIES DAMN LUCKY TO HAVE THEM



The following aren't solo performances.  They aren't collaborations with the wildly talented Aimee Mann.   These are BONA FIDE, ALL-TOO-RARE (of late, anyway) Ted Leo & The Pharmacists shows and we cannot wait to see you there.

7/25 - Chronic Town, State College PA
7.26 - Grog Shop, Cleveland OH
7/27 - Subterranean, Chicago IL
7/29 - Double Happiness, Columbus OH
7/30 - Ottobar, Baltimore MD
7/31 - Morgan's Pier, Philadelphia PA

Let's consider the following ;  Ted & The Pharmacists haven't played State College in 7 years.  The Grog Shop show will mark the 3rd anniversary of the last Pharmacists show in Cleveland ; it's two years since the last Chicago gig.  Columbus?  TL/RX-less since July of 2010. Baltimore's gone without since December of 2010.  HUGE CREDIT TO TED & TEAM FOR ADDRESSING THESE SHAMEFUL ABSENCES.
