To a lot of people, The Unicorns have become this legendary band. The kind of band that releases perfect tunes for a minute, then disbands and no members’ new project is ever as good as as right-place-right-time as they were before. These are the In an Aeroplane Over The Seas or the Relationship of Commands. For The Unicorns, Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? was the record able to play your heart- and mindstrings in just the right ways.
Tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg, you have a chance to see some of these Unicorns hits played live. Nick Thorburn will be performing along with the comedy troupe Big Terrific. Thorburn will be playing hits from across his career, including Islands and Human Highway, but you better believe that if the crowd hears that plunking keyboard and the opening lines of “I Don’t Want To Die,” or the riffage of “The Clap,” it’ll all be over.
This is a one-night-only engagement, so if you missed the ship on seeing The Unicorns live, or if you love live comedy, or if you are into enjoyment, or crave special guests, you won’t want to miss it.
