Last Saturday saw me perform at Some one Call me a Cabaret, which is run by Belle Eve and Ginger Schnapps. During the day I'd decided that the Crossroads act needed freshening up - what I hadn't expected was that I'd perform that night with totally new choreography. The act is hilarious now, and very high energy (my boyfriend was very helpful in the rehearsal process), and although in performance it was a bit messy, I'm much happier with it. It was great to meet Scarlett Delights, who told me about a weekly night that happens in Winchester at the Railway - good to know, as it's always worth a trip home!
The night before I'd had a rather intelligent sounding evening at the Tate Britain. Two of my friends who host a podcast called The Saturday Arts Club, were staging a live debate. There were several provocative statements on the arts that were designed to stimulate debate. You will be able to download the podcast for free on itunes. After we'd all been articulate and interesting art boffins, we all went to the after party and got very drunk!
It was a busy weekend, as on the Sunday night I attended the Buns n' Roses Rock Cabaret at Madame Jojo's. Pictured are El Duo Bongo (my boyfriend is the ukelele player). It was probably the best show that I've seen at The Finger in Pie Cabaret (and I've seen 2, and performed at 3) - I loved Jonni Music and Rayguns Look Real Enough, and it was great to see my lovely burlesque girls Roxi Kixx, Amazing Gracie, Ava Iscariot and Miss Phoenix all looking totally fierce!
