Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers

The Haunt, Ithaca, NY

This show took place on Saturday, September 20, 1986. Such a great concert. Richman was performing as a trio with the Modern Lovers. I remember that before one song, Jonathan began introducing it, "Now we're going to play--" and someone shouted out a song title. Without missing a beat, Jonathan said, "Okay," and they launched into the request. Afterwards, the entire room started shouting out song titles until Richman had to caution us that he wasn't playing any more requests.
