A Dyke About Town: Lucy Wainwright Roche a hit at Triple Door

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN A&E Writer

LUCY WAINWRIGHT ROCHE
Reality joined Mercy for Lucy Wainwright Roche at the Triple Door September 6. The daughter of musicians Loudon Wainwright III and Susan 'Suzzy' Roche has good genes and a powerful voice. The evening consisted of nice folk originals. Reality said, 'I forgot how funny she is.' She has a new CD, There's a Last Time for Everything, coming out this fall.

High points were 'Middle of the Night,' 'Next Best Western,' 'Statesville,' 'Open Season,' and the new album's title song.

BELA FLECK AND MARCUS ROBERTS TRIO
Reality also went to see Bela Fleck and the Marcus Roberts Trio at Jazz Alley September 5. They have a new CD, Across the Imaginary Divide. Fleck's banjo was phenomenal. Roberts' piano was delicious. Drums by Jason Marsalis were rhythmic. Rodney Jordan's bass was funky. Reality liked how the banjo and piano played off each other.

They opened with the slow 'That Old Thing,' featuring piano and banjo. 'Topeka' was upbeat and had solos by Fleck and Roberts. 'Petunia' returned to slow and featured Bela and Marcus.

Piano and banjo ornamented 'Sunlight,' which was also slow. 'Small Potatoes' featured Roberts and Fleck. 'Some Roads Lead Home' was fast and had solos by Bela, Marcus, Jason, and Rodney. Reality said, 'I'm glad I didn't miss that bass solo.'

'Heart of Blues' was slow and featured bass, piano and banjo. 'Across the Imaginary Divide' was fast and had solos by Fleck, Roberts, and Marsalis. Reality said, 'Bela puts them through their paces. They have to run to keep up with him.' Closing the night was 'Cheeseballs in Cowtown,' with banjo, piano, and drums.

CHELY WRIGHT: WISH ME AWAY
Mercy enjoyed the new documentary Chely Wright: Wish Me Away. Wright is the first major country and western star to come out as a Lesbian. The film includes interviews with her father, brother, sister, niece, nephew, and aunt, who were all supportive. Only Chely's mother never made peace with her being Gay. Wright talks about moving to New York after 19 years in Nashville, a city that has never really welcomed her back. There is footage from the Today Show and Oprah, as well as the Chicago Gay Pride Fair, where Chely was grand marshal. Wright, who has a partner, recently sang with the Seattle Women's Chorus.

A DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT DIRECTION
Mercy found Margaret Mann's A Dramatically Different Direction engrossing. Mann, a biracial Lesbian, has used a wheelchair since a small blood vessel in her spinal cord burst in 1997. Her Buddhist perspective helped her deal with her disability. She describes her experience taking on such bureaucracies as the Social Security Administration. The memoir is moving and funny.

TURTLE SEASON
Mercy enjoyed Miriam Black's novel Turtle Season. Anna Simon has been married for 30 years. After her husband dies, she learns a disturbing secret about him. She goes back to school and makes a documentary about the Rainbow City Band. There she meets Carla, a drummer, who she falls in love with. The Seattle setting is knowingly drawn and the sex scenes are fun in this warmhearted novel.
