  • I want to gooooo! His music sounds awesome, and as a huge punk rock fan it would be cool to see this proto-punk performance!

  • Because my wife hates “There’s Something About Mary.”

    Also, who doesn’t like the ice cream man?

  • Roadrunner by Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers is one of the best early punk songs ever…

  • I discovered the The Modern Lovers self-titled album back in college and fell in love the wittiness of Jonathan Richman’s songwriting. It’d be great to see if he still has the dance moves from the above video!

  • Whoa! I would love to go!!! He is an amazing songwriter.

  • A girl I’m dating is coming down from NY this weekend and I want to take her as I’ve never seen Richman but am a big fan of the Modern Lovers. Don’t really know his solo stuff but what I have heard was pretty great and would be awesome to check it out live as I hear he doesn’t really play the ML songs these days.

  • when i lived in boston during college i fell in love with him. i could listen to new kind of neighborhood on repeat for hours. and i have.

    plus. egyptian reggae!

  • I used to have Road Runner as the ring tone for my phone. Modern lovers are one of my favorite bands. I’ve seen him live….4-5 times? it kind of runs together. I’m going whether I win or not 🙂

  • I wanna go because I have a terminal disease and I have two weeks left, so seeing Jonathan Richman live would make my last days on Earth extremely memorable. OK, I don’t have any disease, but I LOVE Jonathan Richman.



  • I want the tix because, and these are all true:

    1) I wrote a song about Jonathan
    2) I gave it to him at a show, on a cassette
    3) He wrote me a personal letter back with comments about my song.
    4) I’m a public school teacher who needs a pick-me-up!

  • I love Jonathan Richman. From ‘The Modern Lover’ days to the ‘Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lover’ days to his solo work, I’ve always enjoyed him. My sister once heard his cover of a Sam Cooke song and has since said that he’s a terrible singer. The last time he came to town was in 2008 on the very same day I was watching No Doubt at the Nissan Pavillion. With my sister! The show was great, but I’ve always felt that I missed my chance on seeing a living legend perform. Please give me the ticket(s) so I can take her to this show and have another great brother/sister concert experience. But mostly so I can prove her wrong. 🙂

    Thank you.

    Congrats to Evan!
