Tori Amos coming to Seattle in November, Melissa Etheridge to play Washington State Fair

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

There is nothing like seeing Tori Amos in concert. If you're a fan and if you've seen her perform live before, then you know what I'm talking about. She's like a strong storm that blows in and out of town, forceful and memorable and dramatic and unpredictable. Amos, who interviewed with Seattle Gay News several years ago, has included an appearance in the Emerald City this fall, right around Thanksgiving, so don't plan on going anywhere this year because she's only in town for one night. The longtime LGBT ally is touring in support of her new album, Native Invader, which is scheduled for a September release (exact date TBA). Amos is set to play the Paramount Theatre on November 24 with tickets available now at www.Ticketmaster.com, in person at the Paramount box office, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Get tickets ASAP; I have a feeling this show is going to sell out.

Melissa Etheridge is returning to the Puget Sound, after a sold out concert just over a month ago at the Paramount Theatre. This time, she's playing outdoors at the Washington State Fair, in Puyallup. The Grammy and Academy Award winner will once again perform her 'MEmphis Rock and Soul' show, a tribute to Stax Records with songs by Mavis Staples, Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas and more. Etheridge's album by the same name was recorded at the historic landmark Royal Studios with a band comprised of preeminent figures from the Memphis scene, including veterans of some of the city's most cherished recordings. It also features guitarist extraordinaire John Mayer. Tickets for the show, priced between $28 and $48, are available for purchase now at www.thefair.com.

Jay Z is the man. What he does, no one else can. Regarded as a rap god, the multi-talented artist is one of music's all-time greats, who just released a new album a week ago called 4:44. The release of this record included a personal revelation from his own family, when his mother Gloria Carter came out as lesbian on the track 'Smile.' Part of the song's lyrics go like this: 'Mama had four kids, but she's a lesbian / Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian.' Jay Z and wife Beyonce have been outspoken supporters of same-sex marriage and the LGBT community for years, and this might have something to do with it. 'Smile' is likely to appear on the hip hop icon's set list when he embarks on the '4:44 Tour' this fall with a scheduled performance at Key Arena on December 13. Tickets to see Jay Z in person are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Speaking of coming out, Gavin Russom of the electro-punk group LCD Soundsystem came out publicly this week as a Transgender woman. 'This is my fifth decade being alive,' she said in an interview with Grindr. 'And in each of those decades, there's been a time where I've tried to say, 'Hey, I think I'm transgender!' My body rejected it in the same way that it now utterly rejects going into a men's bathroom or when somebody calls me 'sir'.' LCD Soundsystem recently headlined the Sasquatch Festival, replacing Frank Ocean who canceled weeks before the event.

Finally, rising hip hop star Taylor Bennett, brother of Chance the Rapper, shares his story on coming out bisexual earlier this year via social media. Read the in-depth interview at www.billboard.com.
