Sodom and Begorrah at The Glory - The Irish are back! October 20th

Back in the summer, OutSavvy sat down with two great talents on the queer cabaret circuit, over a pint or two at The Glory, in East London.

They told us about their summer show - and it was such a good craic they have another for you lucky people next Friday 20th.
Xnthony and Annie Pics have come together to bring you Sodom and Begorrah. This will be London’s second Irish Queer Party when they ‘take over’ the Glory for one night; a night of Blarney, pink, green, and wild partying – just what you would expect with the pair of them, following Xnthony’s sell out St Patrick’s Day party, Culchie Cabaret.

We asked them a bit about what the audience will expect on the night.  Downstairs, Xnthony a real ‘livewire’ on the queer performance scene, if ever there was, will MC the show and bring together talent with a distinctly Irish flavour.

As they say it’s a bit of ceoil agus craic, ceilidhs and shillelaghs, Riverdance! Barry’s Tea! whiskey! Sinead O’Connor! Enya! And more Irish pride than you can shake a stick at! Think Celtic Tiger, but BOOM rather than bust. Xnthony's shows are fun (no chance of them being serious, that’s for sure) and experimental. They are combustible.  Anything can happen, and it usually does. He describes himself as a ‘hot mess’ and his enthusiasm is infectious – the audience cannot help but get into the spirit of things.

Annie Pics, dizzying delicious drag queen – who’s path crossed with Xnthony, when both were studying at Dublin’s National College of Art and Design, a few years back, will be DJing upstairs, as well as offering a night of ‘she-nanigans’ (her Paddy’s night was show was quite something) and introducing a few surprise guests as well as her ‘licentious lassies.’  The music will be feel-good uplifting, 80s pop – perfect for a night like this.

Sodom and Begorrah is going to be a very Irish night… open to all, Irish and non-Irish alike… and who knows, maybe a desperate Brit or two will find nice Irish fellas for that all important EU passport…  Erin Go Bragh!!!
