Last Tuesday Society Presents: True LIES ( the secret one )
Look! in the past few months last tuesday has done TINA, Edinburgh festival, next wave and comedy festival and they've all been friggin MASSIVE.
HOWEVER being the misanthropic hipster performance artists we are does this meteoric rise to fame make us happy?
Are we digging the huge crowds and critical adulation?
Are we satisfied and comfortable?
The answer is of course a resounding: NO. In fact we are the opposite: We are ruddy sick of festivals bossing us about! The bleedin curators with their grant applications, 25 hour meetings and karen walker sunnies on a chain; the festival clubs with their over priced booze and multitude of net working opportunities, the old growth forests worth of fliers and posters peeling from the city streets!
Hissy fit or press release? hard to tell at this point:
SO we at the Society have decided to take it right back to the old school: a badly publicised, hastily organised old fashioned last tuesday in the OLD BAR no less. Where we started out.Where the first last tuesday was nearly 3 years ago. It really only fits about 60 so it's going to be a squeeze. But we love it.
The theme is TRUE LIES.
Because when you ask for the truth get ready for an action movie starring Arnie.
All yer old faves and a spattering of new ones:
- The famous Suitcase Royale,
- Bron BLOODY Batten
- The god damn List Operators,
- Kunst ist Scheisse's very own Eva Johansen
- The infernal Slow Clap (2010 Melbourne Fringe best comedy and Brisbane power house award)
- The impoverished DIY circus of Skye Gellman
- The garrulous gendarme of poetry, our laureate Telia Nevile
and a bunch of other cunts. and a CRAFFLE!
$8/$10 7.30pm OLD BAR Johnston Street Fitzroy 26th October
this gig will be like MTV unplugged was for kurt. before he blew he brains out.
The one after this will be a proper big one - our now famous Xmas special in November at the Spanish Club no less.
