Buzz Column: Catch the hot summer Buzz from Bill Copeland Music would like to pass on to you, gentle readers, the following gig announcements from some really, really, really big acts in the greater-Boston/New England music scene:

Niki Luparelli is at it again. Celebrate Bastille weekend 2017 by storming Harvard Square as Niki Luparelli presents Blonde Side of the Moon. Your favorite boozy chanteuse and fearless comic maven returns to the OBERON stage to revolutionize classic rock hits backed by an bevy of burlesque beauties, and mesmerizing aerialists for the performance of the summer. Known for her sold out tributes to Bowie, Madonna, Prince, Led Zeppelin, and Blondie, Niki accompanied by the Even Pinker Floyd band, uses her classically trained and artfully abused voice honoring songs from such history making albums as Dark Side of the Moon, and The Wall. Some of New England’s most acclaimed ecdysiasts perform striptease spectaculars guaranteed to get you comfortably… you know. The Friday, July 14th, show will be the longer, more elaborate, more exclusive performance for Pink Floyd fans of the deepest dye. But if your Bastille Day celebrations conflict with that show, there will be another on Saturday, July 15th, slightly abridged, slightly earlier in the evening, and set at a faster pace. Is anybody out there? On Bastille weekend, you’re going to wish you were here storming The Wall! Run, rabbit run; set the controls for the heart of the OBERON night club; and we’ll see you on the Blonde Side of the Moon!

Come on out and have a few beers if you’re in the area and hear me do songs you’ve pretty much never heard me do anywhere.
