Are Ya Listenin'?


The album title Ukelear Winter may lead you to believe that this record is a barren wasteland of elevator music, the likes of which you might be forced to listen to while the yule log flickers cheerfully on the television screen. So you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that songs such as "The Big Gay Paradise Valley" and "Not a Cub" are included on this album. The artist behind Ukelear Winter is Ben Lerman, a musical gay comic who accompanies himself (you guessed it!) on the ukulele. Yes, he's funny, he's gay, he plays an instrument that looks like a tiny guitar, and he's coming to rock your world at 8:30 p.m. at the Way Out Club (2525 South Jefferson Avenue; 314-664-7638). Tickets are $7 at the door, and this show is for those who are 21 and older only. For more information on Lerman, including a chance to listen to some of his songs (you know you always feel so much cooler when you can sing along at the concert), visit
