Carla Lippis London premiere this July

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!

Listen up, creative types; our associate producer Louise Oliver has got something to tell you. Whether you're about to battle the wild and fickle beast that is the Edinburgh Fringe, or pack in a secure day job for a precarious career in the performing arts, Louise is here to remind you of how much the world needs you. And as seasoned arts industry manager, who also acts, writes, sings, and produces for a living, she knows what the hell she's talking about.

Wir lieben dich, Hans!

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.
