New York prepares for Thomas Dolby (and his "bizarre-looking doohickeys")

ThomasFrom today’s New York Times:

Thomas Dolby entered pop eternity in the guise of a bespectacled, wild-haired mad scientist, with the 1983 novelty hit “She Blinded Me With Science.” He returns after a long absence — in his other life he has been an innovative creator of ring tones — with a tour that finds him largely in the same gearhead persona (sans the hair), surrounded by bizarre-looking doohickeys with colorful gauges and oversize knobs. Wednesday at 10 p.m., Thursday at 7 (with the singer-songwriter Carey Ott) and 10 p.m., Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, at Astor Place, East Village, (212) 539-8778; $20.
