I only just heard about this. There was an “off-Broadway warm-up” at the Rosebud in Somerville this past weekend, and tonight is the full extravaganza at Club Oberon in Harvard Square. It’s “Oh! You Pretty Things: A Burlesque/Cabaret Tribute to David Bowie,” and it features “24 Bowie tunes, from â€œAll the Young Dudesâ€ to â€œLetâ€™s Danceâ€ redone in energetic lounge style with a 10-piece band and seven scantily clad dancers.”
This event is hosted by Niki Luparelli (â€œNeo-cabaret vamp, Vaudeville comedienne, pinup model and bleach aficionado,â€ in her own words). â€œWeâ€™re going to do this until he sues us or comes out of retirement,â€ Luparelli said before Saturday’s Rosebud show. Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.
