To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, famed time-twisting musical collective Postmodern Jukebox will circumnavigate the globe on their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour, landing in San Antonio on Saturday, April 20th. The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade – one that Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations. Check out these YouTube sensations when they come to Tobin Center this Saturday night!
Started by Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) has gone on to amass over one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers and more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half-decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents. They’ve also performed on shows like Good Morning America, topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and caught the attention of NPR Music, NBC News and a wide array of celebrity fans.
Proving that everything new can be old again, Bradlee became a viral pop sensation after creating a series of clips for YouTube that found him and his Postmodern Jukebox reworking 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, and crossing Daft Punk’s "Get Lucky" with Irish folk music are just a few examples of their work.
“When creating a touring version of the Postmodern Jukebox concept, we work on pairing the right talent with the right material and building a unique and amazing experience for Postmodern Jukebox fans,” Bradlee says of the upcoming show. “Get ready for the most sensational 20s party this side of The Great Gatsby."
