Jonathan Richman Plans 27 Shows/Austin Residency

Jonathan Richman has announced a new run of shows with drummer Tommy Larkins. These twenty-seven shows, including a four-night residence in Austin, TX and a three-night stand at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY will kick off another full year of touring.
Upon wrapping up these dates, Richman will put the finishing touches on his forthcoming as-yet-untitled 2010 album with Larkins. This collection of songs will be a follow-up to his Vapor Records release Because Her Beauty Is Raw And Wild (2008), a moving portrait of love and loss from one of modern music’s most original artists. The album featured a newly recorded version of “Old World,” The Modern Lovers 1976 classic, as well as a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Here It Is”.  Other stand-out tracks include “As My Mother Lay Lying,” “When We Refuse To Suffer” and the playful title track.
