R-E-S-P-E-C-T: A Celebration Of Women In Music

  • Majestic 115 King Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

A benefit for Planned Parenthood and a generally enjoyable idea for a show, R-E-S-P-E-C-T celebrates women in music from decade to decade and genre to genre. The celebration is twofold, serving also as a recognition of local women musicians, all of whom take on a role and cover the songs of a different woman in music history, in a revue consisting of more than a dozen performances. Aarushi Agni (of soulful blues-folk band Tin Can Diamonds) represents Ella Fitzgerald, as Ginny Kincaid (of alternative indie outfit, Nester) does her locally-known Alanis Morissette routine. Other highlights include jazz singer Megan Moran taking on Joni Mitchell and Abby Sherman of power-pop darlings Trophy Dad as Carly Rae Jepsen. The night is hosted by local octet The Big Payback, who play funky jazz-rock fusion. —Emili Earhart
