Everyâ€™s music men
21 February 2012
By Nick Bond
After a successful first week, the blackcat lounge season of queer cabaret continues at Marrickvilleâ€™s Sidetrack Theatre until March 10.
On February 29, local queer singer-songwriter Brett Every â€” fresh from his win for Best Folk/Jazz/Roots video in the 2011 RightOut TV Awards â€” will play a special show titled Ten Men in an Hour.
Every will present 10 songs about men, including originals heâ€™s yet to release on CD. Hear his break-up songs Henry and Dear Sidney, a song to a best friend done wrong (If You See Ollie) odes to a doctor (Doctor Joe) and a priest (Brother Taylor), plus a song addressed to a boyfriendâ€™s angry father (Mr Smith).
Every will also use his set to showcase his knack for an impeccably chosen cover â€” expect to hear his take on Mikaâ€™s Billy Brown, Concrete Blondeâ€™s Joey and Bette Midlerâ€™s Come Back Jimmy Dean.
Everyâ€™s concert is part of a packed program for this second half of the Sidetrack season, including multiple concerts from Lady Sings It Better, who offer feminine reinventions of male-penned songs, and two showings of Homage, in which local LGBTQI musicians play homage to their queer musical heroes.
