Look for local rocker and music producer Mike Flood to take the stage of the Academy of Music on Sunday in the role of Ed Sullivan, the lock-jawed, gait-rolling, hunch-shouldered emcee of the Northampton Arts Council’s “Really Big Show.” Flood began playing in the local club scene in the 1980s in the former Sheehan’s Cafe in Northampton and has a long view of the Valley’s musical history that, says NAC director Brian Foote, “will make him a natural for introducing some of the region’s upcoming talent, like [the pop trio] And the Kids (pictured). Also on the bill: Northampton Councilman at Large Bill Dwight and WRSI-FM deejay Monte Delmonte, who will appear as Statler and Waldorf of “The Muppet Show.”
2 p.m. $8 advance,$10 at the door. Tickets at northamptonartscouncil.org or reallybigshow.brownpapertickets.com.
