This popular series introduces young indie scene music innovators in our intimate black box venues and welcomes breakout bands to larger theaters.
"Irresistible…bolstered by sly harmonies just peeking out from a sea of distorted guitar." —Pitchfork
Songwriter extraordinaire Stephin Merritt and his central ensemble return for a live show in the Southern Theatre downtown. Distortion, the Magnetic Fields’ most recent Nonesuch release, found the band taking longtime fans for a bit of a surprise as it set aside the all-acoustic approach of the previous album, i, to frame Merritt’s always supremely crafted, droll, and articulate lyrical observations with surly menacing squalls of feedback and reverb-drenched fuzz guitar. You won’t want to miss this occasion to see the genius of the Magnetic Fields in action again.
