Cold War served hot hot hot :
If your idea of a good night out involves a Jason recliner rocker, a buzzer for drinks service and a Hollywood movie with a number in the title, don't bother. But if you like your entertainment with a twist of lemon (and a shot of vodka), head underground to fortyfive downstairs.
Bosak's an accomplished musician, singer, comedian and stage performer; here she assumes the persona of an intense, slightly mad gothic noir/dominatrix/circus master/conductor to the band, leading the musicians in an 'art music' extravaganza.
"Thanks so much for an awesome evening of frivolous, spontaneous, impulsive, musically brilliant & enriching, culturally aware, historically correct, lighting spectacular, very Melbourne, cool and groovy awesome entertainment which inspired my girlfriend's grandmother to inform her family today or her amazing night out! Thank you.
