Melbourne (Australia): Upstart Alley VIII - Sat Feb 7th 09 - x-posted widely

Hi folks,
Just spreading the word, its shaping up to be a good one!


Upstart Alley VIII Sat Feburary 7th 2009 -

Pervy performance, rocking music, seedy side show entertainment and debauchery for all you misfits, queers and trans folk!

Topping off Gasworks’ Midsumma season the Upstart Alley troupe brings you another raucous performance party, teeming with dazzling displays of bent pervy performance, gender piracy and rocking tunes. Step right up for an action packed show from performers from near and far including Kelli Jean Drinkwater (Syd), Yumi Umiumare, Wes Snelling, Kaboobie (Adel), The Bad Father (Adel) and music from psychobilly rockers The Vaudevillains, DJ Linx and more!

Upstart Alley VIII boasts a grimy vaudeville style show featuring seedy side show entertainment and rocking live music. Belt yourselves into your seats to witness spectacular feats of gender defiance and glamorous rebellion by our outstanding and outlandish performers. Upstart Alley has been rockin Melbourne audiences for the last two years, jump starting thoughts and libidos. We refuse to force people into ill-fitting gender (or other) categories and create spaces where the whole range of identities bump and grind against each other and redefine and mess with the binaries that box us all in.
