Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox
8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11. State Theatre, 609 Congress St., Portland, $30 to $55.
This show was supposed to happen in March of last year, but we all know what happened then. Thankfully, the time has come to spend the evening hearing jazzy, golden-age versions of modern pop hits performed by Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox. Their latest single is a take on No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak,” and they also put their signature on Radiohead’s “Creep” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Among their most fabulous interpretations is of “I’ll Be There For You” by the Rembrandts, which is the iconic theme song to the TV show “Friends.”
