Vivid Au Go Go presents: Avant-Cabaret: Jeff Duff 'Bowie Unzipped', Zsa Zsa LaFine & Bridie Doll
Jeff Duff ‘Bowie Unzipped’
Jeff Duff is arguably the most flamboyant, creative and controversial entertainer Australia has produced. His musical gifts and fantastical androgynous performances parallel the artistry of David Bowie. And so to Vivid Sydney 2016. Exotic, fearless and enigmatic, Jeff Duff will present David Bowie Unzipped at Avant Cabaret in the Red Room, Level 4, Kings Cross Hotel. Jeff is also about to release his first book, This Will Explain Everything.
Zsa Zsa LaFine
Zsa Zsa LaFine is a Sydney-based pop artist whose music is the product of her training and talent in art, fashion and performance plus her love of industrial, pop, hip hop and electronic music.
Last year she dropped her debut EP Dreamhaus, a collaboration with Simo Soo and Brendan Maclean. Enthusiastically welcomed, it was a sample-size pack of tracks that made rotation on FBi radio and Triple J Unearthed as well as interstate and international play and blog chatter. Taste-making blog Who The Hell described the lead single Milk as sounding “like lasers, desert-bound trips and probably some musical influences too.”
Her stagecraft and music combine to make a dysphoric synthesis of lowbrow and highbrow with a stylishly sincere irreverence. She’s like the love child of a post-apocalyptic femme-fatal and pouty 60s glamor-brat. LaFine is an elegantly crass, theatrically vulgar, singing and dancing femmebot, always dressed to the nines and ready for a good time.
She pulls references equally from the past and the future, turning Minogue covers into riot grrrl-house anthems and sharing personal stories wrapped so tight you won’t even realise you’re singing along until the 20th time she’s looped through your head and butchers Rammstein into a bubblegum-pop anthem. Zsa Zsa’s set to become your favourite artist soon.
Sydney go-go goddess Bridie Doll is a lipstick stained, champagne-soaked, mistress of the psychedelic, hip shaking dance moves of the 60s and 70s. Inspired by big hair, b-grade movies, old school bump and grind, and the golden era of Sydney's Golden Mile (aka Kings Cross), she performs and teaches regularly and has recently returned from a dancing tour of Japan.
