Friday To-Do: Blake Lewis

Posted By on Fri, Apr 3, 2009 at 10:28 AM


8 p.m., Village. $22-$50.

Famous for beat boxing through Bon Jovi's “You Give Love a Bad Name” and finishing second to Jordin Sparks on “American Idol” the season before last, Blake Lewis continues to run against the tide of “Idol” alumni. Lately, he's been on tour with Finnish trance DJ Darude with whom he collaborated on the Flock of Seagulls cover “I Ran (So Far Away).” It's a natural extension of the self-described “electro-funk-soul-pop” of Lewis' debut full-length “A.D.D.,” which included production from dance music super producer BT. Look for the vocalist to debut new songs. Despite getting dropped from Arista last year, he's forged ahead on a follow-up, which he's described in interviews as “Massive Attack meets Zero 7 — drum-and-bass with a little pop influence.” VIP tickets include a chance for a meet-and-greet. They're on sale for $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
