JAZZ & THEATRE Honor Hef­fer­nan – The Whistling Girl Theatre com­poser and for­mer Auto Da Fé key­boardist Trevor Knight has set the wit and wis­dom of Dorothy Parker to mu­sic, and who bet­ter to sing it than Honor Hef­fer­nan (be­low), one of our most distin­guished jazz vo­cal­ists, who has a store of her own wit and wis­dom to bring to her per­for­mances. And there’s more than able back­ing from a group that in­cludes Knight and gui­tarist Conor Brady. THEATRE Glo­ri­ous Mad­ness ex­pe­ri­ences of those who lived through the Easter Ris­ing back to life. In typ­i­cally rig­or­ous style, the the­atri­cal ma­te­rial is drawn from true tes­ti­mony. The 1916 Ris­ing was de­cep­tively con­tentious, with protesters taunt­ing rebels from the side­lines of the street. This is a win­dow into history that you would never get from read­ing a book. JAZZ Hia­tus Kaiy­ote Pick­ing up rhythm gaunt­let tonight at the Sugar Club is Mel­bourne con­tem­po­rary soul four-piece Hia­tus Kaiy­ote. Ex­pect­ing this one to take a smooth pro­gres­sive path through fu­tur­is­tic and psy­che­delic sounds. Fans in­clude Prince, Erykah Badu, Quest­love and Com­mon. De­but al­bum Tawk Tom­a­hawk will fill in the blanks.
