6:30 pm – Viva La Lehrer IV: The Fourth Annual Celebration of the Life and Songs of Tom Lehrer

Saturday, April 8 @ 6:30 PM

The World’s Premier Lehrer Song Fest returns with up to 20 of Santa Cruz’s most interesting musicians, performers and comedic talent to wallow in ebullient delirium at the luscious rhymes, lyrical lists, poignant satire, and playful portrayals of utter mayhem that made Tom Lehrer a legend on three continents and a pop-culture icon for multiple generations.

The Early Show “for Lehrer Fans” is 90 minutes of non-stop Lehrer with no intermission. The Late Show “for Lehrer Lovers” is longer with a brief intermission and even more Lehrer than anyone should have to endure. Of course, we don’t expect Mr. Lehrer to participate — since he has promised not to. Yet, there will be surprises!
Kids, bring your parents. They’ll be glad you did.

Featured performers include Gail Rich Honorees Lori Rivera and Joe Ferrara, Santa Cruz Ragtime Festival founder Kylan deGhetaldi, the Gold Standard Barbershop Quartet Constellation, Steve Wilson, Lizz “ZZ” Hodgin, “Me & Tom,” “3-In-A-Chord,” B.D. Tacklind, Olaf Schiappacasse, the Fabulous Lehrermen, and Wallace Baine as M.C.

And as usual, proceeds will benefit the Homeless Services Center of Santa Cruz. Tickets go on sale March 1. For additional information email VivaLaLehrer@comcast.net.
Tickets: $26 in advance, $30 at the door
Tickets available at BrownPaperTickets.com
Doors at 6:00 pm
