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.

Win tickets: Lady Sings it Better Drinking Game

You heard right. We want you to suggest rules for a Lady Sings it Better drinking game! There’s a bar in our Comedy Festival venue (Sound Lounge, Seymour Centre) and the last time Maeve saw a gig there (the Alister Spence Trio, incidentally) she got slightly tipsy¬† (*ahem* hammered). In honour of this lovely memory, (and in dishonour of recently resigned wine drinking Premiers) we are offering a double pass to one of our Comedy Festival shows to anyone who suggests the best rules for a Lady Sings it Better drinking game you could choose to play at the gig. We sound amazing on a regular day; we sound EVEN MORE amazing if you’re drunk. Post suggestions in the comments and an expert panel* will decide the winners.

* whoever comes to the next rehearsal
