Perhaps more renowned for his preferred mode of transportation (the bicycle) than for his actual music, Jeremy Fisher is that irritating pseudo-hippy guy at parties who hogs the acoustic guitar and annoys the shit out of you by playing Bob Dylan and Sublime ad nauseam in the kitchen. What's worse is that some people think he's awesome and implore him to pursue his musical career. So he starts writing his own stuff filled with excessively clever lines like, "We made some lemon meringue pie / it sucked but anyway / I would make it with you any time." Then he gets a record deal and sells loads of albums to high school girls. I still don't get it.
Jeremy Fisher plays the Gladstone as part of ARCfest Friday (October 15) and hits the Rivoli Saturday (October 16).
