Proto-punk and indie icon, Jonathan Richman, will make his McAllen TX debut on Sunday, February 22nd at the Historic Cine El Rey Theatre. The influential American songwriter is most known as the founding and creative force of the legendary proto-punk group, the Modern Lovers, an influential band in the early 1970s that formed and immediately disbanded before contemporary punk icons like the Ramones and Talking Heads gained international momentum.
It is a huge honor to be working with Richman, and I’m still quite a bit stoked that the man will be making the trek down south to the valley. Richman will be performing a very special stripped set of his own material, which includes music of the Modern Lovers, and will be supported with an opening act from Charles Gonzales of the Coo Coo Birds.
This is an all ages show!
Please spread the word on this huge opportunity!
