Taking pop back in time
Friday, October 20, 2017
7:30 pm // Atwood Concert Hall
Pianist Scott Bradlee and his rotating ensemble known as Postmodern Jukebox have become a viral sensation, racking up over 600 million views for their deceptively simple and entertaining music videos.
Postmodern Jukebox is a genre-busting, time-traveling musical experience. They rework 21st century pop hits in a variety of vintage styles -- transforming Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" into a '50s-style doo wop number, giving Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" a '20s jazz accent, crossing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with Irish folk music, and showing how Ke$ha's "Die Young" would work as a classic country tune. Since their sold-out 2015 show in Anchorage, their star has risen even higher.
So dust off the turntable, fix yourself a drink, and enter an alternate universe where new is old and old is new again.
