Presenting GOTHICA CABARET.
Headline set by :
The Dark :
Funeral Rock act The Dark merge elements of 90’s hard Rock/Metal and Industrial Electronics with a glam goth flare. Fronted by Brandon Ashley, the current line up is decorated with seasoned diverse performers across the gender fluid spectrum. The songwriting takes the listener back to the 90’s and early 2000’s while the production and live sound hits you in the face with a modern kick, full of low ends and heavy aesthetics. The band’s latest single Mr. Macabre has landed on number 22 on the USA Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart,right next to Ghost and Korn, and number 7 on the USA Foundations chart. The band have been smashing their way through the U.K. Rock and Metal scene for the past year, and have released a full length album and EP since their hiatus due to the pandemic.
Drag / Comedy & Burlesque featuring:
Ginger Snaps :
Hosted by the warm, friendly and extremely enthusiastic Ginger Snaps, each performer gets two shows in rotation with a little break in between. While the artists are the bricks it’s the host that is the mortar binding things together. “Ginger is perfect, with well judged interlude times that are a highlight in themselves.”
Edgar Allen Hoe :
Bedford’s own drag king and avant-garde monster, expect dark performance art with a punky edge.
Amethyst Allure :
Amethyst has been dancing for about 8 years but really blossomed through and since lockdown. She is a temptress. A siren who slinks around the pole with a few spicy tricks sprinkled in. Expect a fun flirty side of Amethyst as well as the enchanting powerful performance.
Mild Peril :
Mixing political satire dressed up with comedy and dance.
Kinetic Vibes Dance Academy are an established and cherished part of the community performing in Bedford River Festival, Bedfringe and other local events.
