Oh What A Night!
Abandon Normal Devices Festival hit Manchester at the weekend and I attended the extraordinary gallery opening at Cornerhouse, the astronaut’s chair at Cube gallery, but my unreserved delight was being part of the Peaches Christ Midnight Mass screening of All About Evil.
It was a night so controversial it angered the local librarian community – although they might have been in on it!
Not for the faint of heart or stomach (there was a lovely gift of returning food at the end of the night: whoever left it – please leave me off your Christmas list) it featured more fun and frolics than you can shake a sequined gown at and that was just the preshow! The film itself was hilarious, wonderfully acted and a true sensation. I haven’t been part of an audience that enjoyed itself that much...EVER!
So Team Peaches are off to Sitges so if you are lucky enough to catch the whole experience there or even better at the Victoria Theater in San Fransisco itself – check out the website for dates.
AND runs until Friday and the exhibitions until November (Phil Collins) and January (UnSpooling) so do yourself a favour and add some abnormality to your life!
