Hey, New York—Hit Parade, Slate's exciting new podcast, is coming to you live for the first time! Pop-chart analyst and critic Chris Molanphy, writer of Slate’s “Why Is This Song No. 1?” series, hosts this special live episode of his podcast, telling stories about B-side hits throughout pop history. It’ll be a night of pop trivia and great music—featuring special guest Ted Leo, the singer-songwriter who fronts the Pharmacists, joined Aimee Mann for rock duo the Both, and just released his solo album The Hanged Man.

Special Guest: Ted Leo
Ted Leo came to indie fame in the late-'80s New York hardcore scene by playing with Citizen's Arrest and Animal Crackers. He then moved to Washington, D.C. where he founded Chisel, a mod/punk outfit that you should already know about. When they disbanded, Ted headed up north to New York City and started playing as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and eventually signed with Matador Records. He released his first record with them, The Brutalist Bricks, in 2010.
