Description

Dandy-up…It’s high-time for a Retro-Roundup of Smart Cocktails, Hard Swing, Rockabilly and Sexy Stage Acts.

LILY FROST presents the second Edition of BIG CITY SOCIAL, a new performance series that launched to a standing-room-only crowd at Lula Lounge in April. Big City Social #2 promises heightened-revelry, presented smack-dab on the Thursday between Pride and Canada Day Celebrations in Toronto.

Media Sponsors: ZOOMER RADIO, PROUD FM, NOW MAGAZINE. Photographer: Jeremy Gilbert

Thurs June 29 at Lula Lounge, www.lula.ca, 1585 Dundas St. W. Dinner Reservations guarantee seating: 416-588-0307

6:30pm Doors / 7pm Cocktails, Dinner & Dance Lessons / 8pm Show / 11pm Late Nite Dance Contest

Lily is joined and backed by seven-member musical outfit THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS – featuring Eric St. Laurent, Teddy Hawkins, Michael Herring, Tony Rabalao, RJ Satchithananthan, William Sperandi and Gene Hardy. Special Guests are TENNESSEE VOODOO COUPE – featuring BIG RUDE JAKE (whoo-hoo), Steve Good, Steve Abrams and Donny DeKouchay offering up their special mix of ‘100-proof hillbilly jive’. Also on hand is DJ DAVID FARIS, dancers from SODA POP HOP DANCE STUDIO, and seriously hot burlesque from MR. DEW LILY and LAURA DESIREE.

It’s a SOCIAL, dah-ling… Socialites are invited to dandy-up. Come ready to flirt, dance and mingle. At the heart of our event is fine music, rounded out by novel touches, such as Cupid’s Grotto, where the one and only Miz ‘Matchmaker’ Marshall – a professional Yenta -will be encouraging Cupid’s arrow to do its thing.

It’s the opinion of our ‘Social Coordinators’ that dancing is a damn-good-thing. To get the joint jumpin’, we’re pleased to partner again with SODA POP HOP DANCE STUDIO. Their members will be on-site to school attendees in a pre-show dance lesson at 7pm. They’ll also perform two numbers in the show and are coordinating a LATE NIGHT DANCE CONTEST* (at 11pm).

Big City Social #2 is also the launch party for Lily’s new EP, entitled REBOUND. With her new tracks, Lily explores her recent experiences of dating after a marital split, sex and the single, and her new role as a self-described ‘rebound bitch’.

Big thanks to our generous supporters: Martha & Alf Davis, Alice Kernaghan, Janet & Doug Davis, Monica Avendano, Antoine O’hannessian, Donna Starr, Jannie & Paul Mills, April & Cheryl McDonald, Rob & Soli Joy, Greg Robertson, Cat Nimmo and Moses Znaimer.
