Composer Mike Viola isn't exactly a household name, as his imagined pop darlings The Wonders were in the 1996 film That Thing You Do. Viola penned the Oscar-nominated title track for that film before going on to write the soundtrack for Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story -- proving his real talent may be lampooning pop music. Viola is also a touring musician, currently on the road opening for Fountains of Wayne. He'll be stopping into the Atlantic Theater tonight along with talented vocalist Kelly Jones for a night of intimate performance courtesy of the theater's "Living Room Live" setup, which hosts up and coming national artists in a living room setting.
