Raucous cabaret numbers. Fabulous performance art. High camp. Heartfelt music. This weekend, we’re back at the theatre bringing OUTstages After Dark | Cabaret Livestream Series to your screens. Join us at 8pm on Facebook and Instagram as we go live from the stage at The Metro Studio.
Friday night is singer/songwriter Matt Stern with an intimate solo set, performing an all-request livestream. Matt Stern is known for infectious melodies, uplifting energy, and an ability to inspire a sense of community in a diverse crowd. Published for Precious and Sacred, a book dedicated to Indigenous children, and featured twice on Queerty.com, Matt performs in Japanese, French, English and Spanish and has been featured in Exclaim!, Italy’s Periodico Daily and on Let’s Go There (Channel Q) in Los Angeles. His new album, Take It or Leave It, was released in January 2020 on all platforms and its first music video, Full Moon, was screened at the Victoria Film Festival in February. That same week, the first single Don’t Tell Me was syndicated on CBC and picked up by shows across the country while French singles Dans mes rêves and Droit devant were broadcast on Radio-Canada. A recent feature in Addicted Magazine characterized Matt’s new album as “beautiful music that makes you feel seen and safe.”
