THSH Birmingham and Foyles present An Evening with Jake Shears: Boys Keep Swinging
“On the stage, Jake Shears is a triumphant explosion of unembarrassed carnality and charm. On the page, he's very much the same.” – Armistead Maupin
Singer and songwriter with the hugely successful Scissor Sisters, Jake Shears has the scars and the stories to prove it. Discussing his memoir, Boys Keep Swinging, Jake will touch on fame, success, music, sex and sexuality in his own inimitable and honest, style.
From the streets of New York in the early 2000s, to the main stage at Glastonbury, Boys Keep Swinging is music memoir like no other, filled with the joy, hope and encounters of a man finding his community. Ribald, witty, entertaining, out and proud, an evening with Jake Shears should not be missed.
