Oooops! The real Village People

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Boy, are our faces red.

As eagle-eyed reader Romulus Smyth astutely pointed out, we here at Nippertown.com were hoodwinked. As it turns out, the photograph of the Village People that we posted yesterday wasn’t really the Village People at all, but rather a band of wanna-be imposters.

We deeply regret the error, and we promise that it will never ever happen again.

Here is a verified authentic photograph of the real Village People:

(gotta love the 80’s, don’t you?)

The Village People will be playing at the Alive @ 5 concerts series in Albany’s Riverfront Park at 5pm on Thursday, July 2. Admission is free.

Be Here Now: The Village People @ Alive at 5

Gimme a “Y.”
Gimme an “M.”
Gimme a “C.”
Gimme an “A.”

What’s that spell?

For more than 30 years now, the Village People have been singing the praises of the “Y.M.C.A.” And you can bet that they’ll be singing it once again (or twice, or three times…) at Albany’s Riverfront Park for the Thursday, July 2 edition of the free Alive @ 5 concert series.

And if you just can’t wait til then, I heartily recommend watching “Can’t Stop the Music,” one of the all-time so-bad-it’s-hilarious movies and the Village People’s only feature film. Not only does it star Bruce Jenner, but Blackie Lawless appears (uncredited) as a metal musician at an audition.
