Quirky troubadour Jonathan Richman returns to IC with drummer Tommy Larkins


Jonathan Richman

Gabe’s — Sunday, March 15 at 8 p.m.

Punk forefather Jonathan Richman returns to Iowa City to perform alongside drummer Tommy Larkins at Gabe’s on Sunday. Playing a relaxed, acoustic set open to all ages, with no scheduled openers, Richman’s show will be much like his song-writing style: as fun and unassuming as possible.

Richman’s cult following among punk and alternative listeners has only grown over his forty-year career. The musician has proven he is not afraid to reinvent himself. From his more moody work with the ’70s proto-punk group, The Modern Lovers, to his film and late-night TV appearances in the ’90s, to his current tours with Larkins, Richman is a man who wears many hats.

Richman’s positive attitude always takes center stage in his eclectic live shows. Whether it’s the all-too-covered punk-powerhouse “Roadrunner,” or the melancholy-tinged “I’m So Confused,” Richman’s oddball charm inevitability will win you over.
