Controversy presents Janet Jackson tribute – Saturday, Oct 3rd

Nathanael Bluhm, Machine BostonJANET JACKSON Tribute Night: A Grown & Sexy Affair

Looking for something fun to do tonight? Check out Controversy upstairs at Machine in the Fenway.  The evening will include a loving tribute to Ms. Jackson by Teashaboo, Endego & Karizma, while one of my favorite DJs, Begbick, plays from Janet’s impressive catalog of music.

While there is no dress code, grown and sexy attire is strongly suggested. The Facebook event page asks “come dressed for our red carpet photo booth.” and all club kids know you always do as the DJ asks.

Upstairs at Machine | 1254 Boylston St. in the Fenway | 10pm – 2am

Just to get you in the mood, I’ve included one of my all time favorite songs from Ms. Jackson. This late 80s hit seems appropriate considering her absence from the public. Welcome back Janet – I’ve missed you too. 

Madonna’s Rebel Heart beats in Boston tonight

Madonna is in Boston tonight with her Rebel Heart tour. She is and has been one of my favorite entertainers ever since I first heard her in the early 1980s. She was a role model, trendsetter and provocateur and I loved her instantly.  I’m not at her show tonight but I hope that everyone attending has a great time. I’ve opted to include this vintage clip of Madonna from her Like A Virgin Tour. The medley even includes a nod to Michael Jackson’s Beat It.

Well Strung at the Ptown Art House

Chelseas Mom Well StrungOn Wednesday night a group of us went to go see Well Strung perform at the Ptown Art House.  This year’s show, Summer Lovin, didn’t disappoint. They played, Chelsea’s Mom, which you can watch below, but my favorite song was their rendition of Summer Lovin, which quickly becomes Ptown Lovin.

If you cannot get to Provincetown, you can see them today (July 25th) at Rehoboth Beach for one show only and you can check out their tour dates here.
