Why Isn’t Everybody Talking About Fifi?
Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th March 7pm - late
The show is a loose narrative based around the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie story but from the point of view of Fifi la True, who feels she has been forgotten by Jamie as he’s left her in the shadows since the success of the musical. This is Fifi’s moment to show who she is and what she’s capable of. It’s going to be a full-on production with two gorgeous dancers, high energy choreography and a ridiculous amount of fabulous quick-change costumes.
The Undercover Hippy, Junior Bill + support
Thursday 28th March 7:30pm - 11:00pm
Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods”, his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
