Fresh off another killer Australia/NZ tour, hyperactive idiot Tomás Ford is throwing a huge going away party before he heads to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the whole of August. It’s happening at the Rosemount Hotel on Friday July 28.
If you haven’t joined his freaky dancefloor before, it’s pretty easy to explain: no good music is allowed. You can request any song you like. Tomás plays the worst tunes that come up, dropping them like the party weapons they aren’t.
It’s a full-on spectacle including DIY rave video projections, balloons, hardware store disco lights, glowsticks and Tomás’ idiotic all-lipsynchin’, all-dancin’, partypoppin’ antics.
Struggling to think of a request? Get your brain thinking about stuff like Five, Tina Arena, Mel & Kim, that trance version of “Total Eclipse Of The Heart,” line dancing techno, forgotten Christmas hits, 80s movie themes, Korn, Mandy Moore, “Can You Feel The Love Tonight,” half-remembered 2 Unlimited soundalikes from 1992, Gwyneth Paltrow’s version of Cruisin’, the Love Actually soundtrack… if it’s bad enough, it’ll get a spin.
This year Tomás is closing out each night at Edinburgh’s legendary Gilded Balloon with his Crap Music Rave Party, which is also hosting a new version of his Fringe World West Australian Arts Editor Award nominated cabaret riot Tomás Ford’s Craptacular! Proceeds from this show will go to putting some money in his pocket to get the most out of such a kickass opportunity.
