Do you like crap music? 80’s pop? 00’s boy bands? 90’s rave jamz? 70’s disco? 10’s novelty trap? Tomás Ford wants to invite you to the maddest house party in town. Taking over The Rosemount’s intimate Four5Nine for a monthly run of stupid fun, hit the dancefloor for with your best worst requests at his Crap Music Rave Party: The Microraves.
Crap Music Rave Party has packed out some pretty huge venues around Australia, New Zealand and the UK – it’s, like, an Actual Big Cult Thing and a massive institution at Edinburgh Fringe. If you haven’t been before, Tomás will play literally any awful piece of music you want, while he clowns around like the idiot he is, changes between Red Dot-sourced costumes, throws up stupid video projections, pops party poppers, hurls glosticks around and generally makes your night as mega as possible.
He’s wanted a bit of a regular hometown shindig for a while, so he’s going to be getting cosy in the Four5Nine once a month. But don’t use that as an excuse not to book, ‘cos it’s a cosy room so there’s only a limited number of tickets each month. He’s serious when he says it’s a house party.
Want some request ideas? Try these as a start (but he’s sure you can do much worse): Guy Sebastian, James Blunt, Will.I.Am, Ace Of Base, The Safety Dance, Justin Bieber, Backstreet Boys, the Flashdance soundtrack, Dario G, Alanis Morrissette, DJ Sammy, Bay City Rollers, M People, Wang Chung, “that smooth jazz song from Community,” Hanson, Britney, Human Nature, Crazy Frog, Bros, Johnny Farnham, Rogue Traders, Los Del Rio, Los Del Mar, pre-divorce ABBA, post-divorce ABBA, Meryl Streep butchering ABBA…
Get your requests together, get a group of your mates together and get ready for a messy, ridiculous, fantastic night.
