Have you heard? We here at Same Same and our mates at GiRLTHING have teamed up to create a very special evening of the best in queer talent at The Australian Museum’s Jurassic Lounge this Tuesday October 23.
It’s time you got to know our guests a little better. All of them are hand-picked to ensure you get a special night of extraordinary music, boylesque, DJs and awesome activities.
All under the haunting eyes of the Jurassic Lounge’s dinosaur skeletons, here’s the crew we have lined up for Tuesday’s big adventure…
THE STAGE DOOR JOHNNIES
Direct from Las Vegas, where they shared the stage with Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming, and winners of Best Group in the 2011 Burlesque Hall of Fame, The Stage Door Johnnies re-imagine the historic art of strip-tease and are bringing their distinctive, bare-all blend of comedy, live singing, dancing, and naked men to Jurassic Lounge.
The world’s only all-male ‘boylesque’ group, performers Ray Gunn, Jett Adore, and Bazuka Joe apply their masculine sex appeal to the concepts of the tease, surprise reveals, and tongue-in-cheek gimmicks.
These three are not to be missed – make sure you catch them at our Jurassic Lounge, and they’ll also be at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville on Friday 26 October. Tickets are normally $69 each but lucky Same Samers can click here for special $30 tickets.
Hold onto your hats guys… here’s a sneak peek at what to expect from this cheeky trio.
Our amazing Emcee for the night will be our good mate…
What can’t he do? Not much. He’s a super talented musician, pants-melting actor, triple j radio personality, and fantastically coiffured serial tweeter. Who we adore! Brendan will be on hand to rouse our Jurassic Lounge crowd all night long.
Will he bring his ukulele?
The super selectors behind Sydney’s rowdiest club-for-the-ladies, Cunningpants, Natnoiz and BenLucid, will be serving up tunes in the Atrium and Silent Disco.
GiRLTHING is Sydney’s most excellent and outrageous gay girls’ night – nobody parties like them, as the video below epicly shows.
The DJ crew will join us on Tuesday, then you can catch them at Oxford Art Factory on Friday for their GFiRLTHING Halloween Special. Keep in touch with the latest from GiRLTHING via Facebook here.
SYDNEY ROLLER DERBY LEAGUE
Hot babes doing battle on four wheels! Witness all the action of a skate-off and then learn more with informative Q&A session with the Sydney Roller Derby League.
If you’ve been curious about Roller Derby but unsure how to find out more and get started, here’s your way in. The Roller Derby girls are currently competing – including Sunday 21 and 28 October at Sydney Boys High. Find out more here on the Sydney Roller Derby League website.
JACK COLWELL & THE OWLS
Often compared to Patrick Wolf and Nick Cave, Jack Colwell’s performances are dramatic, colourful, energetic, and often confronting.
A classically-trained composer from Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music, turned alternative pop-star, Colwell recently released his debut album, Picture Window. Get a taste of it below.
JULIA & THE DEEP SEA SIRENS
Triple J Song Summit competition winner Julia & The Deep Sea Sirens will also join us. Let Julia Johnson’s lilting voice lift you. A dynamic performer, her vocal perfomances see her range from delicate whispers to desperate cries.
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
For your entertainment, we’ll also have…
Date Roulette! Sign-up to be matched up with random hot singles for mini-dates around the Museum! You could be dancing in the Silent Disco, playing ping pong, hula hooping, meeting stick insects or maybe even a live dinosaur. See someone you like in the crowd? Leave them a message of love or sexy times on our Chalk Floor!
An Instagram Photo Booth! Immortalise your new found love – or indulge in your Drag Queen/Drag King side – with our Instagram-linked Photo Booth.
Plus! Queer burlesque star Diesel Darling, Drag King Memphis Mae and boylesque babe Jester Schrodinger Smilez.
See you there…
Jurassic Lounge with friends Same Same and GiRLTHING, Tuesday October 23, 5:30pm to 9:30pm. Only $14 at the door. Facebook event here.
