Stephin Merritt’s brainchild made its biggest mark with the release of 69 Love Songs, some 17 years ago. Merritt has decided to go big again with a new album (due in early 2017) inspired by his turning 50 called 50 Song Memoir that they’ll be performing front to back over the course of two nights in a select few locations. The first one: Brooklyn’s BAM, on December 2 and 3, as part of the Next Wave Festival. For tickets, visit bam.org.
