Its Your Funeral is brought to you by Charlie Buckitt (one 1/4 of The Late Night Shop) and James Elphick, producer, curator and thoroughly nice chap. Its a New Orleans style funeral romp, sometimes funny, shocking, and exciting. The house band play a big part in the night, but its theatre and cabaret too, with things going on in the basement and in the halls. Its a great use of The Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.
The second outing is on tomorrow night (May9th) but sadly I can’t make it myself.
You should go though as its unique and the best thing you can do on a Thursday and one of the most original new nights.

The Late Night Shop are a group of girls that have been doing good things in cabaret and now have put on their own nights.
The first was this, Welcome To The Family at the Resistance Gallery.
Very interesting night with a wealth of cabaret, including some walk round acts, stage acts and even life drawing in one corner.
There was a real party vibe and people stayed late dancing.
Well done to the girls and thanks for having me along.
This is the full album, with some nudity, so be warned.

Another fun night at The Infamous Double R Club.
Usual macabre goings on with plenty of part nudity, blood and misadventure.
Beautiful crowd this time too
Next one this Thursday, 18th April.
Tickets still available here
Keep your eye out for one off performances elsewhere in the year, including the South Bank’s Wonderland.

A fantastic start to the year for the Double R, with dynamic acts and a show too good to miss.
You can believe the London Cabaret Awards who voted them best ongoing production for a second year or you can view the evidence below.
Next one this Thursday

Animal party on a ship? Fantastically novel surroundings for people in animal suits.
I turned up very late (2.30am) from another event and sort of walked in during full swing.
Absolutely beautiful details on the ship, felt good to be deep in the metal hull watching people dance.
Very surreal but great.
The space had a big whole in the floor where you could look between decks,
lots of winding stairways and nooks and crannies. Saloon type door on toilets was another great detail. Top Night.
