Event Details

Stephin Merritt visits Twenty Summers for a rare solo performance, accompanied by longtime bandmate Sam Davol on cello. Merritt will present a set of solo, acoustic versions of selected songs from his extensive catalog, performing exactly 26 songs, each song title starting with a different letter of the alphabet and running in alphabetical order.


Stephin Merritt has written and recorded ten Magnetic Fields albums over two decades. The Magnetic Fields’ debut album, Distant Plastic Trees, was released in 1991. In 1999 their three-CD collection, 69 Love Songs, established Merritt as one of his generation’s most talented songwriters and garnered him widespread acclaim, including year-end “best of” lists in Rolling Stone, SPIN, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and other major national publications. He followed 69 Love Songs with three albums on Nonesuch Records: i in 2004, Distortion in 2008, and Realism in 2010.
