About this event


UK's drag cabaret superstar, and Adelaide Fringe fan-favourite, Jonny Woo (A Night At The Musicals) returns with an open love-letter to all things Lou Reed and revives the heyday of the NYC underground at Max's Kansas City. Reminisce your favourite songs from Lou Reed's Transformer album, with special appearances from Andy Warhol and Valerie Solanas. Swapping glitter and boa for punk rock and leather, let Jonny take you for a Walk on the Wild Side in this night of cabaret, live music and tales of the Warhol era.

Band: Marc Haywood (guitar), Fi McCluskey (vocals), Miss Cairo (vocals), Jim Portas (drums) Tom Sansbury (bass).
