Faggot, Fruit, Nancy, Pansy, Mary, Fairy, Flamer and Butt Pirate. An obvious target — camp, girly, never quite on point — the taunting started early; well before I was old enough to have had my first inexplicably thrilling yet profoundly confusing day dream about Magnum P.I. and his hairy chest.
This December, Civil Disobedience and Assembly Roxy are offering £5 tickets to festive new show Bugle Boys: Christmas Crackers, for anyone that shows up to a performance with a donation to one of Edinburgh’s food banks. We’ll be working with The Trussell Trust to ensure effective distribution to families in crisis…all you need to do is rock up with your food donation.
We’re past the halfway point of the Edinburgh Fringe already, and to say that our amazing Bugle Boys are NAILING IT would be an understatement! The past two weeks have been crazy busy, with our queens taking the BBC by storm, hitting Radio Forth’s drivetime show, playing Best of the Fest (twice!), guesting at the New Town Cabaret and Brewhemia, plus performing at the Virgin Money Lounge for Fringe donors and at The Greatest Showman Sing-along.
Following on from Part 1, this sequel update looks at some more of the amazing artists that we’ve recently worked with, and what they’re currently up to.
We’re beyond excited as our first ever Edinburgh Fringe programme just arrived from the printers! Starring Courtney Act: The Girl from Oz; Roddy Bottum’s Sasquatch; Joe’s NYC Bar; Hans: Mein Camp; Michael Griffiths’ Sweet Dreams; Carla Lippis: Cast A Dark Shadow; Danny Condon’s Songs from the Black Sheep; Peter Michael Marino’s Show Up; Mindy Raf: Keeping My Kidneys; Romy Nordlinger’s Places; Tomas Ford: Crap Music Rave Party/Craptacular; Modern Robot’s Alive: Music for Night of the Living Dead; and Michelle Shocked: Truth vs Reality.
If you’ve had the audio-visually orgasmic pleasure of catching a Carla Lippis gig in the past, then you know audiences are in for an epic treat when she premieres her new show, Cast A Dark Shadow, in London later this month. In the lead-up to her full run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August, Carla and her band are performing two exclusive previews at Crazy Coq’s Live @ Zédel in Soho, and we can’t wait to wrap our ears around her silky smooth and scary powerful retro-electric sound!
Looking for hot Fringe tips for this August? The full Civil Disobedience programme of shows for the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe is now on sale, including Courtney Act, Michelle Shocked, Roddy Bottum’s Sasquatch, Hans, Carla Lippis, Mindy Raf, PLACES, Tomas Ford, ALIVE: Music for Night of the Living Dead, and many more.
What do you get if you take an exceptionally tall Australian bloke, put him in a pair of sequin-spangled hot pants, cake him in makeup, and hand him an accordion? You could be forgiven for guessing a male rugby player on his stag night – but the answer we’re looking for is ultra-sassy, faux-German, Fringe pop sensation Hans.
