While we love the Mezz in The Twisted Pepper – our original home, we were very happy to gain a bit of elbow room and make the move to The Main Stage Room for September’s Dr. Sketchy’s session. I arrived to the venue to see our two models, Dixie and Fizz head to toe kitted out like 80s Glam Rock stars (if any of you remember the cartoon Jem – they gave The Misfits a run for their money!) HUGE hair, tight pants, lots of accessories and heaps of attitude!!
I jumped on the decks and started playing some suitable tunes to keep with the theme, we had everything from Bon Jovi, ACDC, Poison and Motley Crue to some modern tracks from the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and Spinnerette. Having lost my voice shouting instructions, pose changes and ‘Please remember that photography is not allowed’ about a thousand million times during our Culture Night Sessions, Lucy Rhinehart and Michelle Noir gave the instructions and Sadistic Sedition awarded the tequila and cupcakes with the help of Mimi Misfit and Suzi-X.
Another first for Dr. Sketchy’s Dublin, as we had moved to a larger space, we could take less breaks and were absolutely thrilled to introduce performances in the intervals. Lilly DeValle – Sketchy’s model, Lovecat and Sedette, took to the stage first as a good girl gone bad, bank robber reveling in her spoils to ‘Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing’ by Chris Isaaks. Then Lucy Rhinehart’s altar ego Cruella DeVille was overcome with jealousy for a fur coat… evil has never looked so sexy!!
To finish off the afternoon, we were treated to a brand new performance featuring both Lilly & Lucy as Burtonesque Siamese Twins. Awesome performance!! It’s also the performance that has inspired our theme for Halloween Dr. Sketchys!!
