Aww, it's Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby!

(Funhouse) Wreckless Eric is on tour with his wife, Amy Rigby (aww, he found her), and they're playing at the Funhouse! Wreckless Eric was part of the Stiff Records gang (with cool cats like Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe ), where he gained notoriety with his best-known single "(I'd Go the) Whole Wide World" in 1977. He left Stiff a few years later, but he has continued to write, tour, and record ever since. Rigby played in punk bands and was a solo musician—she met Eric met when she COVERED THAT SONG! Double aww! As a duo, Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby play simple and touching pop music with a wicked sense of humor. They won me over with a song called "Men in Sandals." EMILY NOKES
