The Daily Shortlist June 16
He Founded the Modern Lovers and has influenced the music of too many musicians to name, so here’s you chance to see Jonathan Richman, the modern master of quirky pop songs that pick apart the human condition. Joining him is singer/songwriter Vic Chesnutt, who was discovered by R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe and has been recording some brilliant albums since 1990. For dinner, The Stanton Social has earned a reputation for being a beautifully designed restaurant/lounge while serving up some delicious multi-ethnic cuisine. For drinks, a favorite of mine is The Magician, this bar’s chill atmosphere just may be the cure for a well-earned night of rocking. A great way to end the night? Stop by The Pink Pony. This boho café has been serving French food and coffee since the 80s and has a relaxing vibe. It’s as punk as that neighborhood gets nowadays.
