Club Spiegel in Melbourne's most-loved pop-up venue The Famous Spiegeltent is once again set to become the city's night-time hotspot this summer. Located on Arts Centre Melbourne's forecourt, which also includes the iconic W-Class Tram Bar and Curve Bar, Club Spiegel offers visitors late-night entertainment and risqué revelry on Friday and Saturday nights from 11pm inside The Famous Spiegeltent from a revolving roster of special guests from circus, cabaret, theatre, burlesque and barnstorming bands.
A place of adult-only humour and anything-goes anarchy, highlights of the raunchy Club Spiegel line-up include:
DJ Barry's Organ Beats Explosion on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 February. Barry Morgan from The World of Organs goes one step further for Club Spiegel with an exclusively devised DJ set sure to get you in the mood for dancing. Morgan is known across the nation for his "velvet tones, luscious lounge, exotic tangos, and grooves as modern as tomorrow" created on his 1981 Hammond Aurora Classic organ.
On Friday 22 and Saturday 23 February, The Toot Toot Toots perform their rowdy, flamboyant, mock- cabaret Outlaws. Set in the fictional gold rush town of Gomorrah Fields, the performance tells the story of émigré Eli Rayne and the vengeance and bloodshed that shadows his arrival. Based on their debut concept album of the same name, Outlaws is complete with narrations, gyrations, brass sections, projections and animated facial expressions.
The Club Spiegel revelry will rock until dawn as part of Melbourne's inaugural White Night Melbourne on Saturday 23 February, an all-night celebration of arts and culture that is celebrated in 23 global cities. Part of the all-night line-up from 11pm - 7am in The Famous Spiegeltent, Club Spiegel will showcase a veritable feast of quality music acts, including Mikelangelo and the Tin Star, who will take the stage for some Spaghetti Western reverb and "surf twang", and Miss Goldie, who will be spinning deep soul into the wee hours.
Melbourne swing sensations The Shuffle Club will be Club Spiegel's resident house band from February 8 - March 23. Performing their blend of swing and big-band sounds, The Shuffle Club will take over the tent at 12:30am each evening after the headline act and offer up some swing and jive tunes that will keep punters dancing until later into the evening.
