Local band Saint Solitude opens for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

“Turns out Saint Solitude is opening for Ted Leo and The Pharmacists Thursday night at the Grey Eagle… last minute addition due to sickness,” writes Saint Solitude front man Dup Crosson. Crosson recently released his latest album, By Some Great Storm.

Ted Leo and The Pharmacists come to The Grey Eagle for a 9 p.m. show tonight. Tickets are $15 at the door. Here are some Ted Leo factoids: The indie singer/songwriter grew up in New Jersey. His birthday is Sept. 11. He’s a vegan. He appeared on a 2005 tribute to The Beatles’ Rubber Soul. And he’s pretty funny on Twitter: “Tonight, my voice went from Matt Pike to Dicky Barrett to Ben Nichols to Jay Farrar, to something resembling a gravely me,” is a recent tweet from @TedLeo.
