"Weird Al" Yankovic

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Although “Weird Al” Yankovic is inexorably connected to performing at state fairs in flyover states, you’d have a hell of a time finding a more appropriate venue for the king of all song parodies than a stage that regularly hosts glitzy touring musicals and major Broadway productions. The average Weird Al show includes more than a dozen costume changes, a slew of video clips and a kind of concentrated earnestness that if harnessed could be used to power cities. It would be fair to say he’s come a long way since cramming a four-piece band onstage at Zanies. But as supernaturally charming as Yankovic is, it’s his seriously virtuoso musical talent that has turned “Another One Rides the Bus” into a multigenerational pop comedy juggernaut. Catch him now in air conditioning before having to submit to the awful Tennessee sun for his trip to Bonnaroo in June.
