Postmodern Jukebox Staff Pick

When: Sat., Oct. 13, 8 p.m. 2018
Price: $39.50-$79.50
Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox is a musical group that proves a good arranger is vital — and Bradlee is a brilliant arranger. The group's shtick is simple: It takes modern pop songs by artists such as Avril Lavigne, Robin Thicke and Daft Punk and reworks them into doo-wop or New Orleans jazz or torch songs. It only appears simple because Bradlee surrounds his piano with a rotating cast of ultra-talented instrumentalists and vocalists from the LA club scene and points beyond. The result is songs you know and love, reinvented as classics from a lost era. The magic is that songs you don't care for become swinging, catchy gems. It's the best kind of déjà vu. Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox play a one-night show at 8 p.m. Saturday, October 13, at Lindenwood University's Scheidegger Auditorium (2300 West Clay Street; Tickets are $39.50 to $79.50.
