HOMAGE: a tribute to our queer musical heroes

Sydney queer musicians Brett Every and Maeve Marsden of Lady Sings it Better join forces to unite local musical talent in a celebration of their GLBTQ musical heroes.

These young artists play tribute to famous GLBTQ musicians, past and present, with a night of creative covers, amusing anecdotes and, most importantly, incredible talent.

Audiences have packed out The Supper Club, Camelot Lounge, The Fuse Box and The Sidetrack, staying late into the night, singing along to reinvented hits by Melissa Etheridge, George Michael, Pink, Antony & the Johnsons, The Indigo Girls, the Village People, the Gossip, Tegan and Sara, Ricky Martin, Dusty Springfield, Savage Garden, Ani DiFranco and many more. Check HOMAGE out on youtube.

HOMAGE brings us together to record our history, celebrate our heroes, laugh and cry at the songs which are etched into the queer memory bank.

Are you ready to Wiggle?

Nothing says ‘happy fifth birthday’ like a Wiggles cover. But it wouldn’t be OUR birthday if we didn’t sully your childhood memories with several references to big butts and penetration. We give you…our Wiggles / Jason Derulo / LMFAO medley, recorded¬†shakily at a recent¬†sound check. We’re plotting and planning a proper film clip, so this will have to do til then.

Come celebrate our fifth birthday, as part of Sydney Fringe Festival.
