The 9:30 PM concert will feature The Lisps, who describe themselves as "a New York-based co-ed assemblage of 21st century theatre-prone indie rockers," performing songs from their upcoming concept album "Futurity."

"Futurity" features music written for their new musical of the same name. The musical follows Julian Munro, a Civil War soldier trying to invent a steam-powered mechanical brain that will solve all of humanity's problems. Futurity will have its world premiere at The American Repertory Theater in March 2012.

The concert will also feature Ben Simon, Chelsey Donn, Grant O'Brien, Aaron Schroeder, Caroline Tamas and Jillian Tully.

Cerveris won the Tony Award in 2004 for his performance in Assassins. He has also been nominated for his performances in The Who's Tommy, Sweeney Todd and Lovemusik. His other Broadway credits include Titanic, Cymbeline, Hedda Gabler and In the Next Room.

Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. For more information and tickets, visit www.joespub.com.
