MEDIA RELEASE: What happens when you combine DJs, Drag & Burlesque? Shake it well with high end artists, stir it with low brow acts and you’ve got yourself a cocktail for something that is: Classy as F*ck.
Fresh from a hugely successful launch event a month ago, comes a club night that combines DJs, Drag and Burlesque to inject Sydney with a much needed nightlife facelift.
On the bill this time around on Friday, April 28 are the likes of DJ Mark Dynamix, drag performers Tammy Packs and Crystal Ball while burlesque performers, Sheena Miss Demeanour and Porcelain Alice, will ensure things get a little hot under the collar. Lauren LaRouge – perhaps the person with the least amount of class – will act as MC for the evening’s entertainment that will run late into the night.
Classy as F*ck is the brainchild of Sydney burlesque star and all-round talented she-devil, Lady DeVine of Russian Doll Productions.
Ms DeVine has previously produced events such as ‘Burlesque in BED‘ and ‘V is for Vaudeville‘ as well as feature film productions ‘True Face‘ and ‘Stripping from the Inside Out‘.
With Sydney nightlife suffering from a malaise, Ms DeVine says that rather than giving into the wowserism of Lockout Laws, inspiration should be taken from previous generations who partied hard despite the obstacles they faced.
“Let’s listen to DJs providing body-moving beats, let’s be mesmerized by show girls with glitzy, dark and wacky personas and be excited by some of Sydney’s most talented drag performers,” Ms Devine says.
“Let’s party in a judgement-free zone where you can wear and be whatever you want. Let’s all be Classy as F*cK. Support local artists, party the night away and bring ‘Classy’ back but in a more f*cked up way.”
Classy as F*cK: Friday, April 28. Doors open 8pm.
Oxford Art Factory, 38-46 Oxford Street, Sydney
