Jonathan Richman Sets January/February Tour Dates

Text

Jonathan Richman has long approached rock ‘n’ roll with a knowing grin, and though dude may never be as well-known as some of his peers, he’ll be damned if he doesn’t keep trucking with a smile. With a new decade (Richman’s fourth in the music business) upon us, there’s no reason to stop now. Supporting the conversational singer-songwriter/former Modern Lover’s last record, 2008’s Because Her Beauty Is Raw And Wild, and to build some momentum for his upcoming, still-untitled 13th album album, Richman will launch a 27-date tour through January and February.

He’s a roadrunner, roadrunner:
