While righteous indie-punk torchbearer Ted Leo has been making the tour rounds sans-Pharmacists lately (either solo basement shows, like we saw at Nacho House back in November, or solo theater gigs opening for Aimee Mann), a round of full band shows has been announced today via Matador Records, and it includes a date at Morgan’s Pier on July 31st.
While this also answers a question that’s been on our minds as summer approaches (Q “Will Morgan’s Pier be hosting live music again?” A “Yes, evidently!”), it’s not clear as of yet whether this is a free show (as all of last summer’s were) or a ticketed gig. [UPDATE 4/18: It is a free show. Woohoo!] Either way, Ted and the RX always slay in concert, so this one’s bound to be a treat. Below, check out a video (dang near ten years old) of the band playing “Mia and Mia” in the First Unitarian Church basement.
