What to do Tonight: Cyndi Lauper

Shes so unusual
  • She's so unusual

Hard to believe that it’s been 27 years since Cyndi Lauper rocketed to fame with her stratospheric 1983 debut, She's So Unusual. The album stayed on the charts for more than a year, sold more than 10 million copies in the states, and yielded four consecutive Top 5 singles. Lauper never quite repeated that initial burst of success, but she’s still one of our most distinctive singers. She’s managed to maintain both a music career — her latest album, Memphis Blues, came out this week — and TV and movie work. She’s also active in many charitable organizations, including her highly visible work for gay and lesbian rights. Lauper recently returned to the mainstream spotlight thanks to an appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice. More importantly, it showed viewers that after three decades, 11 albums, several groundbreaking videos, acting spots, wrestling gigs, an Emmy Award, motherhood, social and political activism, countless hair colors and styles, and induction into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, Lauper is still passionate, committed, ditzy, beautiful, and so very unusual. She plays House of Blues with David Rhodes opening at 8 p.m. Tickets are $29.50 advance, $32 day of show, and $59.50 for reserved seats. — Brian Baker
