Postmodern Jukebox: All About That Bass

I’ve posted various clips of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox in the past and with him currently on tour in the US I thought I’d share yet another recent release he posted this past September on YouTube.

Saturday night video: Annie Lenox

Annie Lenox remakes ‘Summertime’ in her forthcoming album, Nostalgia, which will be released later this month on Oct 21.

Saturday night video: Erasure

Since Erasure is in Boston tonight on their Violet Flame Tour I thought I’d play a classic Erasure song.  Have a great time if you are heading to see these guys tonight. They put on a great show.

Nicki Minaj video dubbed with farts

Juvenile, crass, rude – yes, but it still makes me laugh.  Checkout this new Nicki Minaj video dubbed with only farts. Apparently no matter how old I get, there remains an 8 year old boy in me.  In all fairness, it does significantly improve Ms. Minaj’s music.

Erasure Violet Flame Tour in Boston Saturday

Erasure at House of Blues BostonHouse of Blues in Boston Saturday, September 27

Erasure’s Violet Flame Tour comes to Boston on Saturday.  While I don’t have their latest CD / MP3 or whatever people are now calling “albums”, I remember seeing them a few years back on the True Colors Tour and they were fantastic.  For more information about the tour visit erasureinfo.com or you can buy tickets here.

Here is a video of one of my favorite Erasure songs.

Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival

Berklee Jazz Music festival in BostonThe Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival – Boston’s biggest block party – takes place in the South End  Saturday, September 27, from 12 – 6 on Columbus Avenue between Massachusetts Avenue and Burke Street.

The outdoor performances are open to the public and free of charge.  This is one of my favorite neighborhood events because the music is always great and the crowd is very friendly.

Prince fans from the 1980s might be happy to know that one of his proteges, Sheila E, is among the many performers playing on the Natixis Stage.  You can catch her set at 5PM.

Never been? Mark it in your calendar and check it out.  The price is right and the entertainment is great.
