To Do List shook off the event-blogging cobwebs last night for our first official outing since we ceased to be Loserville. So what better way to kick things off than with LV favourites Bourgeois & Maurice.
EastEnd Cabaret: The Revolution Will Be Sexual | Arcola Tent
Eat Your Heart Out Presents…Violence | Riverside Studios
Dracula: Sex, Sucking & Stardom | Hen & Chickens Theatre
Boy meets boy, boy tries to seduce boy at urinals, boys wake up together, boys do drugs… There’s not a travel bookshop or a blue door in sight – just a bitter-sweet tale of love lost and found. This is Weekend.
So by the time we got to Saturday, we’d already bopped to Blancmange, been scared silly by the Wall of Death, witnessed a stage invasion, and burnt our fingers on some hot German sausage… and we’d only just begun.
To Do List swapped the city for the magical Isle of Wight last weekend, for four days of Bestiival japery…
Bourgeois & Maurice have taken the next logical step toward world-conquering, stadium-filling super stardom… they’ve only gone and got themselves a band!
The Guardian, The Independent, Q Magazine, NME… To Do List is truly worthy of standing in a field next to any of them. And so we proved at the The Apple Cart Festival, a new music/comedy/cabaret/magic (?) celebration which took over leafy Victoria Park for one day only.
A great line up, selected especially for the Hot August Fringe, included: Mr Teds, Blanche DuBois, Lazlo Pearlman, Willis, Blue Verse, Marcus Reeves, Sasha Selavie, Natalie Geographic, Helen Noir & Darrell Berry, and Myra Dubois…
We love vintage. We love harmony. We love (contrary to rumours) girls. So, we HEART The Harmonettes.
