Get into the swing-o-meter of things

Get into the swing-o-meter of things

Instead of staying in when the election results start coming in this Thursday, join the Static Gallery, Roscoe Lane, for The All Mouth And No Ballot Party.

Patrick Dineen (Composer King Cotton; Liverpool Empire & 08 People’s Opening), Artistic Director of Riders of the Ruby Moon says: “Liverpool is a political city, this is a very important election, which promises to be a dramatic and theatrical experience. We wanted to create an evening of cabaret acts and live broadcast of the election for the people of Liverpool as it has never been done before. It’s a unique one off.

It says here: “Riders of the Ruby Moon are inviting people to Party with Conviction as they bring a unique election night cabaret to the Static Gallery on Thursday May 6th. The All Mouth And No Ballot Party is an all night programme election themed cabaret performance. Listen to Bourgeois Pig as he sings deliriously about the night he broke the Bank of Monte Carlo, meet the Politician and his Wife as they lean on the garden gate of sleaze, hear radical reworkings of classic songs; crooners, tooners and Dada beat poets. Smile with Knitting Woman at the Needlework Box of Free Speech and watch irreverent films faithfully sampling all your favourite dastardly politicians. ticket holders can also dance the night away with an all night DJ and election themed board games including tiddlywinks and snakes and ladders. Throughout the evening, the cabaret will stop and we will go live to the big screen whenever someone’s about to lose their marginals.

“Come along and mark your ballot paper and post on the Wall of Free Expression… will it be hung or will it be swung? This will be a totally unique and interactive theatrical experience… who knows how it will end? Make sure you’re there to find out!”

Show starts at 9.30pm, just in time for the election results to start rolling in. Tickets are £10. Call 0844 873 2888 call in at the Unity Theatre.

Or you could just stay in with a a couple of litres of red and think of what might have been.
