Cabinet of Curiosities Show 82 – Pride and Prejudice (and possibly Zombies)


“It’s like people care more about their pride than about what’s correct, about the truth.” 
— Terry Pratchett

“A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word;
and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking,
the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half-deserved.”

Damn, I was soooooo close on this.
I guess I’m just a heffalump or a woozle!

How about you? Do you measure up?
Too male? Too female? Not Male or Female enough?
Too dark? Too light?
Too straight? Too gay?
Too fond of eating brains? Too alive?
Something else?

No matter what you are, or are not, there is always someone out there ready to dislike you for it.

Be proud of who you are
because who you are is perfect.

If anyone doesn’t agree –
well really, is their opinion important enough to bother about?

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 31st July
and we’ll form a clique and point and laugh at the people who don’t like us!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 81 – Name Dropping

“You and your name-dropping. ‘I knew Michael’. ‘I knew Sammael’. ‘The angel Gabriel did my hair’. It’s like I’m with the Band with biblical figures.” 
— Cassandra Clare (City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4))

I’m a friend of Stevie Wonder
I’m a friend of Eric Fromm
I’m a friend of Bryan Ferry
I’m a friend of Terence Stamp …….

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 80 – 2nd Anniversary Special!!

“I mean, what is an un-birthday present?”
A present given when it isn’t your birthday, of course.”
Alice considered a little. “I like birthday presents best,” she said at last.
You don’t know what you’re talking about!” cried Humpty Dumpty.

“How many days are there in a year?”
Three hundred and sixty-five,” said Alice.
And how many birthdays have you?”
One.” 
— Lewis Carroll

Difficult as it may be to believe, Cabinet 80 is also our 2nd Birthday!

We’re officially a toddler

There will be tantrums

There will be eating of inappropriate objects

There will be writing on the walls in crayon

So…..basically a typical Wednesday then!

You are most cordially invited to The Cabinet of Curiosities Birthday Bash

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 17th July
for some Anniversary Anarchy

Fancy dress is optional, but please do wear some clothes

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 79 – Covers VI – 2 Crap, 2 Spurious

“People take on the shapes of the songs and the stories that surround them, especially if they don’t have their own song.” 

— Neil Gaiman (Anansi Boys)

I can’t believe this is the sixth covers show and we’re still not even close to running out of auditory atrocities to dismay and disenchant!

I do love a good cover…..

But I love a bad cover even more!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 3rd of July, 
to hear your favourite songs as you’ve never heard them before…
and if you’re lucky, you never will again!
