Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox returns to Boston October 19th at the Wilbur Theatre. I have repeatedly posted videos of the Post Modern Jukebox – a band that remakes popular songs and performs them in different musical genres with talented vocalists.
I love their work and wanted to share news of their return to the area so you may purchase tickets to see them on tour.

Remember this Carly Rae Jepson 2012 hit? The catchy pop tune spawned a host of video covers. My favorite was this version by the Harvard University baseball team.
In honor of Donna Summer, who was born and raised in Boston, the city in collaboration with Together Boston will host a Donna Summer Roller Disco Tribute on Friday, July 18 from 6 to 10 p.m in City Hall Plaza.
Adding to the Donna Summer celebration will be two of Boston’s loved drag queens, Frieda Fries and Nicholle Pride of Perestroika who will model the late disco queen’s iconic styles.
Rollerskates and blades can be rented on Friday free of charge at the event, and if you don’t want to skate, you can just come and dance to the classic disco tunes played by Dorchester DJ Kon and friends.
For all of you who have plans to visit Provincetown this summer, I always recommend taking in a show or two. In the summer, Ptown becomes like a gay little Las Vegas with more shows on any given night than many cities more than ten times its size. A perennial favorite is Well Strung who are performing again at the Provincetown Art House through September 20th.

I’ve been regularly featuring Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox clips because I love how he reworks modern songs into popular styles from past decades.
Check out their latest, a cover of No Diggity with Ariana Savalas singing the 90s Blackstreet song much like Jessica Rabbit might have at the Patty Cake Lounge.
Tell me what you think. I actually prefer this to the original.
Madonna – the mother of reinvention – is driving fans crazy with rumors and innuendo. At least that is what Billboard Magazine seems to be hinting at with their riddle recently posted on their website – here.
Billboard will reveal who the artist is behind the 50-second snippet (listen to at the above link). Based on their not so subtle hints is there really any doubt? Rumors also suggest a May 26th Memorial Day surprise launch on iTunes. Check back and you can thank me latah.
