Shanon Whitelock's Never Date a Songwriter at The Butterfly Club, Carson Lane, Melbourne CBD.


Never Date a Songwriter is a fun, vivid and electic show by Shanon Whitelock that seeks to canvas and comment on the fun and dysfunctional realm of modern dating.

The show is performed at once with considerable confidence yet a carefree and easygoing style by Shanon. Taking the audience through a broad and diverse array of songs and modern romantic scenarios - from kissing on a couch to dates where macchiato turning into martinis - it is the sort of show that is at once very fun, charming and yet illuminating.

This is owed to it showcasing and poking fun at all the conventions and unwritten rules surrounding the modern world of dating - and seemingly how needless they are and readily they should be done away with - if it actually gets in the way of pursuing a happy relationship.

The performance itself is beautifully done, with Shanon a gifted singer and pianist, and the performance taking in a wide variety of influences, so well highlighted by the wide use of notes and chords.

Shanon's interaction with the audience throughout the show is good and ongoing...


What's more, while the performer would be forgiven - given the ample time and thought that has gone into writing these songs - for being a bit cynical all up about the modern world of dating, from his audience engagement and banter it is clear this is not the case.

Instead, it seems fair to say this show is not so much a hard and rigorous assessment of human nature's foibles in 2015; just more a gentle indicator taking rules and norms too seriously when it gets in the way of a real connection is never a good thing. With this, Shanon Whitelock's Never Date a Songwriter hits the right notes in a number of ways.

Never Date a Songwriter, a show at the Butterfly Club very much worth stopping by for.
