Nick Turner & Ted Leo


The post-post-punk world’s answer to what a singer-songwriter should sound like, Ted Leo, makes a special appearance at tonight’s record release party for comedian Kurt Braunohler. He will bring a sincere, heartfelt alternative to the often trite and ironic musings of funnymen, and fellow guests, Todd Barry, Eugene Mirman, Hannibal Buress, and Nick Turner. Luckily Leo has a light-hearted sense of humor when he’s not singing and the punk sensibility to be able to deflect any heckles.
