Jonathan Richman, best known as the frontman for influential proto-punk band Modern Lovers, will release a new solo album, SA, on Oct. 1 via Blue Arrow Records. He is performing with drummer Tommy Larkins, his frequent collaborator, in a show at 9:30 Club on Saturday, Oct. 20, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!
SA, the album, takes its name from the first solfège syllable of the Indian raga mode. SA was co-produced by Jonathan with his wife Nicole Montalbano and former Talking Heads guitarist Jerry Harrison, also a member of the original lineup of the Modern Lovers. The upcoming record is Jonathan’s 17th solo album.
