Show Preview: Stephin Merritt @ Central Presbyterian (5.6)

smLet’s face it, once we wake up on Wednesday morning, it’s going to be a shit show.  Tons of things going on, including local bands, touring acts and festivals. So, let’s start off by pointing you to one of the shows I’m most looking forward to, Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields playing at Central Presbyterian Wednesday night.  He’s playing with Sam Davol, and I’m honestly not sure what the set will include, though it’s sure to be great.  Put his MF work aside and Stephin’s scored plays, written accompanying songs to young adult literature and been involved in various other projects, so he’s got a huge category to draw from…and seeing him at the church will surely be remarkable. And despite his history as a curmudgeon, I’ve always found him quite endearing, sot he intimate setting seems the perfect way to see him. Doors are at 7, and you can grab tickets HERE.  Listen to one of my favorite songs below.
