Boston joins cities all over the world to celebrate the life, memory and music of Freddie Mercury with “Freddie For A Day”. In addition to celebrating Mercury’s music contributions the evening brings people together to help raise awareness and funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust – fighting AIDS worldwide.
Boston’s “Freddie For A Day” celebration takes place at the Oberon Theater on Wednesday night. Three local bands will pay tribute to and perform Queen songs while a silk aerialist dressed as Freddie Mercury performs overhead.
A raffle and costume contest will also be held so come down to The Oberon in Cambridge and enjoy an evening of great music. Tickets on sale now through OBERON for $20 and limited half priced tickets on sale through Bostix.
Do you remember this alternative rock hit by King Missile? I remember Boston radio station, 101.7 WFNX, having this in heavy rotation when it first came out in the early 90s, but I hadn’t given it much thought until I was reading Blobby’s blog last week, and I saw his accompanying photo to his post, Penis Song.
The lyrics of this song still make me laugh. The opening line is, “I woke up this morning with a bad hangover and my penis was missing again.” If you’ve never heard the song before I’m glad I could share it with you and if you are familiar – enjoy the throwback.
I admit that I’m a Zachary Quinto fan and I’m a Missy Elliot fan so there was no way I wasn’t going to post this video of Quinto putting it on the line in his lip sync battle where he performs “Get Ur Freak On”. I hope it brings a smile to your face as well.
Have a great Saturday night
