South Side Show
Since launching early 2010 the ‘South Side Show’ has quickly become Melbourne’s undisputed weekly home of vaudeville, circus and cabaret.
On stage, dance floor or hanging from the ceiling, every Saturday night this lush art deco inspired venue comes to life with the crème of local and international guest performers alongside a rambunctious crowd comprised of circus kids, carney folk and vaudevillians.
With a reputation as a world class cocktail bar as well as one of the city’s most alternative club nights, the South Side Show parties till the wee hours each Saturday to the sounds of soul, funk, jazz, hiphop and cabaret show tunes served up DJs Mike Gurrieri & Knave Knixx.
MISS KELLY ANN DOLL
Miss Kelly Ann Doll is undeniably “Australia's pinup pocket rocket”, a fulltime swing dancer, actress & burlesque performer. In 16 years of being an Australian Champion in her style, she is still one of the fastest female rock & roll dancers in the world, and now has taken over the Australian Scene, with something a little out of the ordinary.
Since her humble competition beginnings, Kelly didn’t want the dream to end, but was sick of competing, Doll always tried to do something just that little bit different, described by promoters and performers worldwide as a bright star in the world of Australia’s cabaret, with so much energy and passion, people have come from across the country to see this doll perform, and she never fails to impress even the most hardest of crowds.
Kelly Ann Doll is not only one of Australia’s most loved Burlesque exports, back in 2003 became Australia’s first international 1940s pinup model, being selected by a worldwide vote as one of the most popular new revolution pinups, and has worked with photographers around the world, boasting an extensive list of portfolios and exhibitions.
Kelly's performance style is hard to pin down in one category, she dances solo, or with her dance partners, she can be on the floor or in the air, but when the priority of a performer is about the audience, you know your in for one great night.
Audiences have said "she makes me exhausted watching her, but I don’t want her to stop!,” "footwork so fast it makes your head spin" and " I want to see it again, she never misses a beat and what a smile".., “cute sexy.. and she makes me want to move!”.
Miss Kelly Ann Doll has now redefined Australian burlesque, opening up a world where boundaries and rules are thrown out the window, Burlesque is a revolution, and she is one full time stick of dynamite that’s not burning out in a hurry.
