www.bizarremag.com

THE BIZARRE SHOWCASE OF ALTERNATIVE MUSIC, TWISTED CABARET AND FREAK SHOW FRIVOLITY ROCKS MANCHESTER AND LONDON IN WINTER 2010!

After three years of sell-out London shows, the BIZARRE BALL – hosted by BIZARRE, the worlds #1 alternative magazine – is going on tour.

The first ever BIZARRE BALL outside London will take place on FRIDAY 22 OCTOBER in Manchester, with headliners THE EIGHTIES MATCHBOX B-LINE DISASTER bringing the show to a riotous close.

But BIZARRE fans in the capital don’t need to feel left out, as there will also be a BIZARRE BALL on SATURDAY 20 NOVEMBER, featuring an exclusive performance from British punk legends THE DAMNED.

Each year the BIZARRE BALL delivers a delirious blend of incredible bands, twisted cabaret and freak show frivolity; chaotic club nights that are known on the London live scene as the greatest shows on earth. But don’t just take our word for it – here’s what our famous friends have said about BIZARRE’s wild events:

“… just unbelievable – utterly great! It’s a terrific surprise to see so many people in amazing costumes. When we arrived we saw a load of girls strutting around on enormous stilts and blokes in stockings and suspenders – it felt just like home.” – ALICE COOPER

Aside from our renowned headliners, there will be dozens more performers each night to keep the audience swooning, gasping and dancing. And here’s what’s on the menu…

The psychotic rockers will have your bones rattling and your hair standing on end. They’ll bring their rumble ‘n’ roll to the Ball. Expect an intense show and very, very fine hair.

ROLO TOMASSI
Having recently completed a support tour with Biffy Clyro, a headline Jan 2010 UK tour and a recent support slot with Enter Shikari and The King Blues, Rolo Tomassi have gone on to release their second album ‘Cosmology’ to rave reviews. ‘Confident and flippantly original…wherever they go next, it’ll be interesting’ – Bizarre Magazine 4/5

OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE
Manchester based DIY rock band Obsessive Compulsive are creating a big noise on the UK underground music scene. With their dark, grungey rock anthems energetic live shows and punk attitude they have built an army of hardcore fans across the UK and beyond.

THE CIRCUS OF HORRORS
After 15 years of shocking all over the world, the UK’s most famous freaks – led by the bloodthirsty Dr Haze – will be making jaws drop and the audience wince at both the London and Manchester shows.

DESMOND O’CONNOR
The debonair host with the most – and a disturbing repertoire of sinful songs – DESMOND O’CONNOR will be returning as compere of the BIZARRE BALL, still wielding his ukulele like George Formby from hell.

LOLA POPS
Discovered by BIZARRE at the first BIZARRE BALL in 2008, LOLA POPS is Manchester’s naughtiest burlesque performer, who gleefully mixes striptease with forensic science to create unforgettable shows.

BIZARRE BALL LONDON
SATURDAY 20 NOVEMBER
THE SCALA
275 PENTONVILLE ROAD
KING’S CROSS
LONDON N1 9NL

THE DAMNED
The first punk band to release a single, The Damned are truly deserving of the tag ‘legends’. With a string of classic songs under their bullet belts Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible’s blistering live show thrills old-school punk fans, cult junkies and hardcore kids alike. And with their latest album ‘So, Who’s Paranoid’ gathering critical praise they remain a vital and fresh proposition.

THE TIGER LILLIES
Martyn Jacques, founder of the Tiger Lillies in 1989, spent his early years living above a Soho brothel and his songs detail the pimps, prostitutes and drug addicts he lived amongst. Their surreal style has been described as darkly humorous, making for an utterly compelling live show that fuses influences from burlesque and English music hall with the spirit of punk and gypsy song.

THE GHOST OF LEMORA
Formed in London in 2001, The Ghost of Lemora have risen to the top of the pile in UK alternative scene with a heady mix of glam, post-punk and dark rock.

THE CIRCUS OF HORRORS
After 15 years of shocking all over the world, the UK’s most famous freaks – led by the bloodthirsty Dr Haze – will be making jaws drop and the audience wince at both the London and Manchester shows.

DESMOND O’CONNOR
The debonair host with the most – and a disturbing repertoire of sinful songs – DESMOND O’CONNOR will be returning as compere of the BIZARRE BALL, still wielding his ukulele like George Formby from hell.

DAMIEN S FEAR
The Damien S Fear Undead Freak Show is one the sickest and bloodiest live shows of this century. Having spent the last 8 years refining the art of pushing his body to the very limits, Damien has created a show that incorporates body staples, beds of glass, nailing his hand to a sledgehammer, glass eating and breaking slabs of concrete over his crotch to create half an hour of chaos fueled, rock n’roll mayhem. Basically, he’s one sick puppy.
