After a successful first week, the blackcat lounge season of queer cabaret continues at Marrickville’s Sidetrack Theatre until March 10.
On February 29, local queer singer-songwriter Brett Every — fresh from his win for Best Folk/Jazz/Roots video in the 2011 RightOut TV Awards — will play a special show titled Ten Men in an Hour.

Every will present 10 songs about men, including originals he’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 boyfriend’s angry father (Mr Smith).

Every will also use his set to showcase his knack for an impeccably chosen cover — expect to hear his take on Mika’s Billy Brown, Concrete Blonde’s Joey and Bette Midler’s Come Back Jimmy Dean.

Every’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.
