- Facebook, Puddles Pity Party
Recognizable from America’s Got Talent and YouTube (you know you can just fall down a rabbit hole watching music videos?), Puddles performs old-timey interpretations of classic pop and rock songs from the likes of ABBA, Bowie, Cheap Trick, Queen and his mash-up of “Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues.”
And while the whole clown shtick may come off as a little absurd, there’s sort of a brilliant edge to his performances. On top of just being an incredible singer, the whole idea of a sad clown rebirthing these classic songs with a vintage twist invites listeners to hear these songs in a new and refreshing way.
We’re not the only ones to believe it, the sad clown has been pretty busy extensively touring across the U.S. and performing at festivals throughout the globe.
Catch Puddles right in your own backyard on Tuesday, March 19 for a performance at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre.
