Jonathan Richman has been called one of rock ’n’ roll’s most eccentric and unpredictable cult figures. Best known as leader of the influential 1970s proto-punk band the Modern Lovers, Richman has entertained audiences for decades with favorites such as “Roadrunner,” “Pablo Picasso,” “Hospital” and many more that delve into styles as varied as garage rock, country and Latin. Richman always has maintained a fiercely loyal cult following through his tireless touring. And his popularity became more widespread in recent years thanks to frequent guest spots on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and a memorable appearance in the comedy “There’s Something About Mary.” With more than 25 albums to his name, expect a number of hits when Jonathan Richman performs at the Camel on Thursday, June 14, at 8 p.m. $13-$15. 353-4901.
