blackcat recommends… amazing music and more in june

So, somehow before we jet off to Edinburgh at the end of July, we have to catch ALL these amazing gigs and events in Sydney:

Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes: The Love Letter Tour
Clairy Browne is damn good, and her star is totally on the rise. Get to this gig.
Friday, 25 May
8.00-10.30pm plus special guests

LadyNerd at Slide Lounge
Kiera Daley, aka LadyNerd is also Edinburgh-bound this year, with her cabaret packed with grammar jokes, wonderful stories about the cleverest women in history and nerdy, nerdy goodness.
Catch her in Sydney at Slide Lounge on June 7. (Check out her facebook page for shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide)
Tickets here.

The Aurora Annual Dinner: A Night of Titanic Proportions
Aurora fundraises for the GLBTQI community by throwing amazing, grand events, such as the Annual Dinner at the Sydney Town Hall. At $225 a ticket, it ain’t cheap, but it is worth every penny and the proceeds support excellent organisations like Twenty10 and the Gay & Lesbian Counselling Service. And you can be sure of a wonderful night of food, wine and top notch entertainment. Read more on the Aurora website.
Saturday June 23 | 6pm | Bookings ESSENTIAL – or 02 8323 4041

Give a little, get a little: Maxine Kauter Band and Gen Chadwick at The Vanguard
Maxine and Gen are two of blackcat’s favourite singer/songwriters. This gig is a total bargain with not one, but two skillful, sexy, bluesy ladies who write awesome songs and rock out with their amazing bands. Maxine is launching a crowdfunding campaign for her new album (give a little) and Gen will be giving away her new EP (get a little!). Phoebe and Maeve have already booked a table of 13 so book now and don’t miss out!
June 27 at The Vanguard. General admission is only $18.80, with dinner-and-show $53.80.
Tix here.

Women Say Something: Iron Ladies
Another in Sydney’s excellent series of panel discussions. This event is pretty much sold out except for 20 or so panel-only tickets which will go on sale in the coming weeks. With the divine Clementine Ford and the equally awesome Annaliese Constable and Bev Lange already announced for the panel, the tickets are sure to fly out the door. Follow Women Say Something on facebook for the on-sale of the remaining tickets.
June 28 at Slide Lounge.
