Brisbane Cabaret: Trash Video Cabaret Benefit FRIDAY WEEK , July 4th

Local performers and businesses are rallying together to save the rare film library of over 12 thousand movies at Trash Video in West End. Dendy Cinema, Avid Reader, The Melbourne Hotel, The Cupcake Parlour, Ahimsa House, and a star studded line-up of Brisbane burlesque dancers, comedians, magicians, singers, songwriters, and poets, have all donated their time and resources to The Carry On Trash Video Cabaret Benefit to be held at Ahimsa House, 26 Horan St, West End (see below for a Google Map) on 7pm Friday the 4th of July.

Guests to this gala fundraiser will enjoy table seating, glamorous waitresses, complimentary buffet, and a jam-packed evening of more than a dozen critically acclaimed performers including Maiden Speech, Viola Vixen, Zenobia Frost, Ross Clark, Alicia Bennett, Jo Doyle, Simon Chan, Trasey Chambers, Melissa J. Evans, Lady Vee:

and Mandarella:

The evening will be hosted by the co-ordinator Evelyn Hartogh as her popular alter-ego Wonder Woman:

“The preservation of our alternative culture is of paramount importance, keeping alive Trash Video's library is keeping alive our cultural history,” said Evelyn.

“I have been so impressed with the enthusiasm that so many performers and local businesses have shown in supporting this fundraising event. The community has really pulled together to give the fundraiser loads of fabulous talent, heaps of terrific prizes and plenty of delicious refreshments. The library we all are keen to save contains films no longer in circulation which may be otherwise lost to the world," Evelyn said.

The Carry On Trash Video Cabaret Benefit will be a Gala Fundraiser to promote the NEW Subscriber option to Trash Video. All funds raised from the evening will be donated to Trash Video Library to ensure the preservation, for the benefit of the community, the unique, accessible archives of rare films. Established in 1995, Trash Video is Australia's largest cult video store.

Enjoy world class acts, delightful refreshments and show you care about keeping culture diverse! Tickets will be priced at: Concession $15/ Full-time worker $25 - or Subscribe on the night and get in FREE!
