Description

The Warhol is thrilled to welcome The Magnetic Fields back to Pittsburgh after their last appearance in 2002, the same year their side project, Future Bible Heroes, performed in the Museum’s intimate theater. The band is led by Stephin Merritt, considered one of the most talented songwriter’s of his generation. Beyond writing and recording numerous albums, Merritt has also written songs for the books of Lemony Snicket, composed music for stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, and was the subject of the feature documentary Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields. The band is on tour supporting their tenth album, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, which marks the return to Merge Records, which released their break-out 3 CD collection 69 Love Songs, after three releases on Nonesuch. Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures and Other People We Married, opens the show with a solo reading.
