Kate Bush Tribute Show in Chicago Tomorrow Night (Thursday 8th December)

Chicago KB tribute nightSo sorry we’re late with this one! From the organiser’s Facebook event page: “In honor of the release of Kate Bush’s first wholly new full-length album since 2005, “50 Words For Snow,” we are paying tribute to the legendary songstress extraordinaire once again. Parlour on Clark will play host to a coalition of Bush-phile DJs — DJ Joshua, DJ Belazauberin and DJ Josie Bush — spinning a selection of music and videos by Bush herself and the many other artists, new and old, who have been influenced by the innovating musician’s sprawling catalog. The event will serve as a fundraiser for TGIF (Trans, Genderqueer, Intersex Freedom) Pride. Attendees are invited to offer up a $5 suggested donation to help make the first-ever event happen and Bush-themed treats will also be available for purchase. All proceeds from both the door charge and the “50 Words” bake sale will benefit TGIF. Finally, we heard a rumor that several copies — both CDs and on vinyl — of “50 Words” will be up for grabs at the event. Don’t miss this!” (many thanks to Joe Erbentraut and again sorry we missed this before now!) This event may come just in time for some snow in Chicago!

BBC Reports the Kate tribute bands:

Tim Master reports on Fake Bush, Never for Ever and Hounds of Love …

Kate Bush has gone on tour only once in her long career – in 1979. As she releases an album of re-worked songs, meet the acts who are keeping her music in the spotlight. Bush was just 20 when she completed The Tour Of Life after topping the charts with Wuthering Heights the previous year. In a recent interview, the 52-year-old singer hinted that she might like to perform live again. But for now it is a handful of dedicated singers and musicians who are performing her songs live on stage ….
