Pride 2012: Dane Terry at the Garden Theater

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

There are many LGBT-related events happening at bars and venues around the festival this weekend, and we recommend one in particular. Dane Terry is a pianist who called Columbus home until he left for New York City in 2010. He's in town for Pride weekend, and he will perform original songs, covers and character pieces in a show called "Dane Terry: Seeks Same." It is about the conflicts a world of commercial labels and social media particularly present a gay man as he tries to establish his identity. The mix of Terry's always-evident sense of humor and his strangely sentimental lyrics will not disappoint. Tickets are $12 at the door.

Garden Theater
