Entries in postmodern jukebox (1)


Postmodern Jukebox - Mount Baker Theatre - Bellingham, WA

To say that a Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) show is "fun" would be a lot like saying the sun is "warm." A more accurate description would be this: PMJ puts on one of the most entertaining, engaging, and downright electrifying live concerts going. 

A group of classically trained musicians, singers, and dancers of the highest caliber, PMJ is a collective of some ridiculously talented artists. You may be familiar with their throwback covers of classic and contemporary songs on YouTube, like this rendition of Creep (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3lF2qEA2cw) or No Diggity (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTfz36WArSU), and for the duration of their show, covers ranging from the aforementioned Radiohead to Meghan Trainor to Cyndi Lauper were carried out to perfection. Make no mistake about it, though, these aren't merely covers. These are ingenious reinventions of hits.
Highlights of the evening included Motown legend Miche Braden's stripped down cover of Lauper's Time After Time, Casey Abrams' ridiculous rendition of Creep, but really there wasn't one second that felt like filler.
Go. To. A. Postmodern. Jukebox. Show.
