Julian Fleisher Kicks Off Fall Residency at Joe's Pub with Martha Plimpton
Julian Fleisher,whose New York City playground ranges from Lincoln Center to LES dive bars, sets up shop at Joe's Pub this fall with a series of concerts kicking off Thursday, September 28, in a show titled "Pop Music." Joining Fleisher for a rollicking and genre-busting journey through the music he loves is the inimitable Martha Plimpton.
In the aughts, Fleisher and Plimpton partnered for a series of LA nightclub performances with sold out shows and rave reviews. Of their partnership, the LA Times gushed "Intoxicating...Fleisher and Plimpton make an irresistible team,with unerring chemistry, obvious regard and fabulous voices,her delicate belt a perfect fit with his soaring instrument...a triumph of intimate spontaneity." This concert brings the two back on-stage together for the first time in more than a decade.
Adding to the shenanigans, vibraphone virtuoso Nick Mancini joins the duo in a rare NYC appearance.

ABOUT Julian Fleisher:
Singer-songwriter-bandleader-producer-actor-former-writer Julian Fleisher is a genuine multi-hyphenate, the kind of restless creative spirit that people used to call a Renaissance Man. His regular gigs at such stalwart New York venues as Joe's Pub, BAM, Symphony Space, The 92nd St Y and The World Trade Center's Winter Garden led him to start writing his own songs and to collaborating with a host of partners both on and off the stage. He has starred in musicals by Stephin Merritt, David Greenspan and Gabriel Kahane and is at work on his own play with songs, Measure of Success. Julian has sung, written, gigged, produced or appeared with, among others, Molly Ringwald, Martha Plimpton, Isaac Mizrahi, Jennifer Holliday, Lauren Graham, Ana Gasteyer, Nellie McKay, Rufus Wainwright, Mo Rocca, Bridget Everett, Paul Schaefer, Keith Carradine, Joshua Malina, David Rakoff and even Sally Field.
