Wotever plans Riot Cabaret

Dusty_LimitsThe team from Wotever World – who run rthe weekly Bar Wotever on Tuesdays at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern – are busy organizing their biggest gig to date. Their ‘Riot Cabaret’ party (which will include performers such as Dusty Limits - pictured) will take over the Scala in King’s Cross on Saturday 13 November. It will be hosted by Wotever World and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, with Camden LGBT Forum and Galop. The aim to offer a packed night of entertainment to “diversity diversity in the fight to overcome homophobia and transphobia.” 

“With cuts and aggression abounding, it’s time to come celebrate what we all have in common and our beautiful diversity. Riot Cabaret will be a packed night of live entertainment at Scala with the finest cabaret, drag, burlesque and music performers from today’s neo/ underground/ cabaret/ queer scene. Together we will overcome and fight back. This is a dress up party for all gender bending, stylish-punk-fashionista-expressions, we want ‘recession chic’ – a way of doing gender bending on a budget, cross dressing via charity shops, finding style and glamour at the pound shop... let’s  do it with style!”

Performers on the night will include host Ophelia Bitz, Michael Twaits, Dickie Beau, the aforementioned Dusty Limits, and Mzz Kimberly, plus intimate interactive performance from Nick Field. Spinning the sounds over three dancefloors will be Jo Bunny (Bar Wotever), Joe Pop (Bar Wotever), Vicki Lester (Torture Garden, Club Wotever), Sarah Malinky (Dick & Fanny, Club Wotever), Debbie Smith (Nitty Gritty, Bar Wotever) and Dr Kemp (Lower the Tone, Bar Wotever). Community organisations will also be in attendance including Camden LGBT Forum (http://camdenlgbtforum.org.uk/) and Galop (http://www.galop.org.uk).
