Ted Leo (Solo) at Maxwell’s, June 21

By Gerard on Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

(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.

Interrupting recording of his next Matador album is NO BIG DEAL for Ted Leo, not if it means performing solo in some of the nation’s glitziest performing arts venues (or at least those with nicer wallpaper than the one above) while supporting good friend (and crucial branch on the Negative FX family tree) Aimee Mann.

Coming this Halloween: TV Casualty’s debut 7″

By Robby on Monday, October 24th, 2011

On October 31st*, Matador will release a charity 7″ from Philadelphia’s TV Casualty.

This is the first recorded document to be released by a collective made up of Brian Sokel (Franklin, AM/FM), Andy Nelson (Ceremony, Paint It Black), Atom Goren (Atom and His Package) & Chris Wilson (Ted Leo & the Pharmacists). Over the past few years the group has played out in and around Philly for different charitable events, assembling as The Ramones (with Rodney Anonymous), Black Flag (with Dan Yemin) and Minor Threat (with Mike McKee). Here, Ted Leo joins the band as Glen Danzig, in what else but their take on The Misfits (watch some past performances here)!

As part of Matador’s famed ELO- catalogue series (confused? consult the discography), this blood-red 7″ features covers of Children In Heat, Angelfuck, Teenagers From Mars, We Bite, Who Killed Marilyn, Some Kinda Hate. All proceeds collected on sales of this release will be donated on behalf of TV Casualty & Matador to The Attic Youth Center, Philadelphia’s only LGBTQ Youth Center.

TV Casualty’s next live date is on October 28 at The Florida Theater as part of The Fest in Gainesville, Florida. Money collected at this show will go to Occupy Philadelphia.

Pre-order the single at the Matador store now.

*The band will have copies for sale on their 10/28 show in Gainesville and you should be able to find the 7″ in your local stores around then. You can also buy the tracks digitally starting 10/31.
