Fresh from a knock-out engagement at the Queensland Cabaret Festival, Brisbane’s cabaret darling, Jessica Papst lands at The Butterfly Club with her kick-ass three-piece band in Only the Good Die Young.
Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Mama Cass and Kurt Cobain were all wildly talented and taken before their time, Only the Good Die Young celebrates their creative, complicated, rebellious and undeniably powerful lives.
Together with celebrated composer and arranger, Shanon Whitelock of Oprahfication (New York Musical Theatre Festival, 2014) Jessica Papst and her band re-imagines some incredible songs, while telling the stories surrounding the artists’ demise and deaths – some of which will surprise you.
With a kick-ass funk-soul-rock groove and a track list for your next road trip, Only the Good Die Young will have you ordering another round to toast the ghosts of Rock ’n’ Roll and deliver a show you can bring your Dad to. For once, he might know the music!
