Jack Rabbit Slims - Burlesque and Indian Summer DJs
With Burlesque appearances from:
Becky Lou began her career with Perth's Sugar Blue Burlesque, winning fans with her comical routines, silent film face and killer curves. Now in Melbourne, she continues to purvey her favourite things - sparkles, giggles and partial nudity. A dynamic firecracker on stage! Comical, sassy and enchanting!
Recently won Miss Burlesque Tasmania and Miss Pin-up for Miss Burlesque Grand Final 2010.
"The Strawberry Siren Stands out with her good looks and peculiar but hypnotic brand of Burlesque tease.” Australian Stage.
Miss Strawberry Siren has been dazzling Burlesque audiences both in Australia and overseas for the last 5 years. No stranger to the stage, Miss Strawberry has been performing since the tender age of 12 (yes.... that’s 17 years under lights!) Miss Strawberry draws on her extensive background in Circus, Theatre and Dance to provide a fresh and fancy take on Burlesque that she likes to call Cirlesque
"The Strawberry Siren is the Tarantino version of Burlesque.... Sexy and dangerous!" Kate Priddle, CircaNICA.
Remember it’s free entry till 9, $8 on a guestlist (if you need one just ask), $12 general and $4 pizza till 10pm. Oh and the drink specials, don’t forget about the drink specials.
Two guys make up Indian Summer Dj’s and whilst we could go on about their recent national tours, the support of various big name acts both home grown and imported from lands far away. Jack Rabbit Slims is just going to put it plainly and simply.
The Indian Summer DJ’s are just the type of people who you want to play at any party. Their mash up’s, remixes, edits, cuts samples, and anything else that they put onto a track are always sure to make people dance.
Think you've seen it all before? Believe me... you haven't seen anything yet. Their live shows are flawless & chaotic at the same time. Hating to be captain obvious this shit is going to get crazy
Then there is the burlesque. What is burlesque you ask? Some might answer strippers others would respond that it is art. In short its artistic stripping. It celebrates the human form, especially that of lovely ladies. If you are yet to experience the fine costumes worn by the dancers make sure that you come down and get an eye full!
Don’t believe me? Listen to this shit and shut the fuck up.
The bands this Thursday are new kids on the block and will play right before the Burlesque show.
With a number of tracks already made and an impending EP launch coming soon ‘Butcher Florist’ are one of the unsigned gems of Melbourne. Their indie rock pop makes for a good start to the night that will set the mood for the rest of the evening. Its fun, you can dance to it, one day you might even know the words and can sing to it also.
One of our personal favourites is Honey + Bears have a listen
The Paper Street Soap Company
Nine instruments, six members, one band this is The Paper Street Soap Company. These guys helped open Jack Rabbit Slims just over a month ago and we are delighted to have them back opening the night again for your pleasure. Rockerbilli, folk extravaganza is something that comes to mind when we hear this musical ensemble. If you missed them the first time round and feel like coming down to hear them, it will be free and there are $4 pizzas.
