Morrissey

Morrissey


Morrissey’s solo career began in 1988, after the dissolution of The Smiths, with the release of Viva Hate. His influence on music and culture has continued to grow through the release of 10 globally acclaimed studio albums – including the recent release World Peace is None of Your Business – plus an array of singles, rarities collections and live recordings. He is renowned as one of the world’s most legendary and influential performing artists of all time. The Independent famously wrote that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime" and Pitchfork regards him as "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture.”

Joining Morrissey on tour will be his longtime band, including Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Mando Lopez (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards).

Doors open at 7:00pm.

Paula Poundstone

SMA


Thirty-two years ago, Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country – stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”

While there is no doubt that Poundstone is funny, the thing that separates her from the pack of comics working today, and that has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike, is her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd. Poundstone says: “No two shows I do are the same. It's not that I don't repeat material. I do. My shows, when they're good, and I like to think they often are, are like a cocktail party: when you first get there, you talk about how badly you got lost and how hard it was to find parking. Then you tell a story about your kids or what you just saw on the news. You meet some new people and ask them about themselves. Then, someone says, “Tell that story you used to tell,” and then someone on the other side of the room spills a drink, and you mock them. No one ever applauds me when I leave a party, though. I think they high five.”

Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $33.50 and $30.00. A $2.50 Facility Fee will be added to each ticket.

Milk Carton Kids

SMA


Grammy-nominated harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids have announced the release of their third album, Monterey, out on May 19th. A refreshing alternative to the foot-stomping grandeur of the so-called “folk revival,” an understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids and their new album. The two years since the release of their last album, The Ash & Clay, have been significant ones for the group. In addition to a Grammy-Award nomination for Best Folk Album, The Milk Carton Kids won Duo/Group of the Year at the Americana Music Awards in 2014. Their featured performances and interviews in T Bone Burnett & the Coen Brothers’ concert documentary, “Another Day/Another Time,” brought the band its widest audience and their 55-city North American tour last year sold out months in advance. Cultural purveyors from Garrison Keillor to T Bone Burnett to Billy Bragg have hailed the duo’s importance among a group of new folk bands, both expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them. Yet while some of the band’s many accolades reference a specific genre, the duo quickly transcends those tags with clear inflections of jazz, classical, even the dark lyricism of modern “alternative.”

With The Goodbye Girls.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 1st at noon through the Fitzgerald Theater Box Office. Tickets are $33.50 and $30.00. A $2.50 Facility Fee will be added to each ticket.

Cary Elwes
SPCO's Liquid Music presents Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson delicately explores the inextricable link between the past, present and future through her custom curated songs and stories for this tailor-made evening of music. Lacing together a sonic landscape of electronics, voice and violin along with her signature surrealism, Anderson captures an irreverent snapshot of the American Now and, as The New York Times writes, “continues to imbue her work with a singular perspective that is both haunting and timeless." Stationed in the intimate Historic Fitzgerald Theater, the ephemeral and the nostalgic will coalesce into a truly extraordinary evening.
