Celebrate Valentine's day by heading down to the O2 Academy. Here, on February 13th, they'll be hosting a night of 1920’s romantic revelry. Clink your martinis, pop open the bubbly, and guzzle the bootleg booze.. but do it quietly, because this is a prohibition party! Turn up donning your most flapper & dapper clobber and dance the night away as DJ Loveless and DJ Poprock spin the full spectrum of tunes - from vintage to modern. And they'll be plenty of acts here too, including:
Bubble Dance – the Sally Rand burlesque act that scandalised society.
Kinks and Contortion – John Celestus
Serge Violland – Jetting in from Geneva with his unique stripteasing circus act.
Star – Hettie Heartache’s homage to the master of Art Deco style – Erté.
Sunset Boulevard – the self-proclaimed greatest star of silent movies – Norma Desmond.
Miss Hell’s Belle – Mistress of Glasgow’s only dedicated 1920s club – The Gatsby Club. If you love the 20s – get yourselves along to this night.
I Wanna Be Loved By You – boop boop be doop.
Gangster – Tiff Finney’s out to kill Spats Colombo from a rival Chicago gang.
Some Like It Hot – Charleston dance by Dollhouse Burlesque. Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators would hire them.
Champagne – The Great Gatsby’s parties didn’t swing till the champagne flowed. Oliver Twisted and his Ollie’s Follies.
Miss Scottish Pin-Up Miss Kelly Bakewell – sings a romantic ditty.
Valentino – a movie fan dresses for her date at the pictures – lusting over screen idol, the Latin lover. Lila D’Lacey.
Fetish Photographer – those illicit postcards could have you arrested. Lola Mimalone and Psyclone Jack.
