Homage – A Queer Musical Tribute

Date/Time

Oct 24, 2018
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

An incredible line-up of local LGBTQI+ musicians will play tribute to their favourite queer artists in ‘Homage’ at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville.

 

Hosted by the irrepressible Maeve Marsden and backed by the Lady Sings It Better band, the line-up includes Brendan Maclean, Jordan Raskopoulos, Marcus Whale, Benhur Helwend and Sports Bra.

 

Homage will feature covers and reinventions of songs by famous LGBTQI+ artists, with a wide range of genres represented, from George Michael to Janelle Monae, Anohni to Ani Di Franco, Electric Fields to Elton John, Courtney Barnett to Frank Ocean.

 

Homage celebrates the role LGBTQI+ music and culture plays in shaping the identities of queer folk as they come out and find their place in the world. From songs of protest to thumping dancefloor beats, speakers mounted precariously on parade floats or another lesbian singer-songwriter with a guitar, the LGBTQI+ community has in many ways been defined by its music.

 

The inaugural Homage is a spin-off from Maeve Marsden’s wildly popular Queerstories storytelling night and podcast.

 

Book early, this will sell out!
