Saturday Is Your Final Chance To See The Greatest Uke Bowie Tribute Ever
You'd think the ukulele was my favorite instrument in the universe, judging by how often I've written about Uke Apocalypse and those crazy tribute shows they throw!
Well if there ever was a case to be made that the uke is the greatest tool of ultimate rockstardom, it would have to be the hypersexified lanky god of San Francisco's live music circuit and his mad band of cheap instrument maestros. From Prince to Tom Waits to the Thin White Duke himself these guys and gals have torn up every stage they've rocked out on... even the Isotope's! (check out the streaming digital proof here)
With their final tribute show looming large on the horizon this weekend, we couldn't recommend more highly devoting your Saturday night to seeing the truly jaw-dropping concert experience that is The Rise and Fall of Ukey Stardust & the Spiders From Mars! To get you in the mood, do check out this massive Bowie video retrospective suggested (and no doubt swooned over) by my queen-of-popular-culture amigo Whitney Matheson.
... or peel back a layer of eye skin and witness this amazing bordering-on-scandalous footage from last time they played the Rickshaw Stop. You will never think of Prince's Darling Nikki the same way ever again!
And it never hurts to repeat, this is the last ukey tribute show ever, so you won't want to miss this. See you there!
For everyone who missed the hot Uke Apocalypse show last month on the Isotope stage... here's live footage of Stella, Just Henry, and 5 Cent Coffee rocking out a beautiful rendition of David Bowie's classic Five Years.
The Isotope staff couldn't be more excited to host an all-out ukulele hullabaloo of true greatness starring the sexified lanky god of San Francisco's live music circuit Uke Apocalypse, with titillating special guest stars Five Cent Coffee, Just Henry, and the oh-so lovely Amy Zing laying claim to the greatest songs of Prince and David Bowie's careers.
Sounds too amazingly good to actually be true? Yes, we know it does! But you don't have to trust us... witness the glory of the Uke Apocalypse with your own eyes. Life is great, isn't it?
We Wouldn't Miss This for the World... All of Prince's Purple Rain on Ukulele
It's a beautiful day here in San Francisco today. The weather is perfect, everyone who walks in the door has a big smile on their faces, there's a great new shipment of comic reads on the new arrivals rack... and tomorrow night we get to see Prince's musical masterpiece Purple Rain performed in it's entirety on ukulele!
Kelly McCubbin, also known as Uke Apocalypse, and his mad band of four string strumming maestros who brought San Francisco the incredible Ukey Stardust and the Spiders From Mars are taking the uke-orchestra concept to it's penultimate purple peak, with orgasmic live renditions from Purple Rain.
Catch this ridiculous musical extravaganza located just two blocks down the street from the Isotope at one of the SF Bay Area's hippest live music venues The Rickshaw Stop. The Isotope staff will definitely be in attendance at this show you won't want to miss!
