This town is big enough for the two of them! Brothers Ron & Russell Mael, the duo that fronts four-decades old seminal avant-pop group Sparks, rarely make an appearance on the East Coast.
When I say rarely, I mean fans are lucky to see them play once in a decade (or two).
So mark your calendars, because the “Two Hands, One Mouth” Tour is bringing them here, TWICE.
This tour has the music stripped down to the bare essentials: No backing band, just Russell’s soaring voice & Ron with his beloved keyboard, “Ronald”, and his disarming and just a little disturbing wit. Stare long enough into his signature German-accountant spectacles, and he’ll have you eating frozen pizzas and wearing Dacron ties for the remainder of your puny existence. All Hail The Brothers Mael!
Tune in this week to WPRB for chances to win tickets to see Sparks live, including today on ::Doubleplusgood:: from 7-9 PM with Lizbot !
