The name Tomo Nakayama is often followed by the words "of Grand Hallway," but every time I've seen this gifted singer-songwriter, he's been making music all by himself. Most recently, I saw Nakayama at the Harvard Exit, where he filled the screen while performing a song in a crucial scene from Lynn Shelton's film Touchy Feely. Immediately after the screening, he stood before the packed house and sang an a cappella rendition of the Judy Garland standard "The Man That Got Away." Tonight, Nakayama wraps up his residency at Town Hall with a performance, during which he'll premiere new songs alongside a short documentary on how his new album was influenced by the Town Hall building and its surrounding neighborhood. (Also, check out his cover of the Rolling Stones’ "I Am Waiting," on the recently released Wes Anderson tribute album I Saved Latin!) DAVID SCHMADER
