New food donation campaign launched

A new campaign is set to make a big difference in helping to reduce waste and provide more food security for our region.

Spawned in the back alleys of Melbourne’s bohemia five years ago, the ’Skallions have been peddling their mixture of rustic romanticism, junkyard blues, pikie polkas, whirling waltzes, and vaudevillian rock ’n’ roll vignettes, internationally and Australia wide, at far flung festivals, spiegel tents, national galleries, and roguish soirees beneath bridges.

wp-RapSara&FingalThese roisterous rogues will be leaving their wintry hideout to rock the silk stockings off Splendour In The Grass. But the ’Skallions are very pleased to announce they will be blasting out a sneaky sideshow at the Byron Theatre (Community Centre). Most recently Rapskallion were awarded Best Musical Act at the Adelaide Fringe Festival for their three rabble-rousing shows at the Idolize spiegel tent in the Garden of Unearthly Delights. They have performed at many of Australia’s top music festivals including the National Folk Festival, Rainbow Serpent, Woodford Folk Festival and Folk Rhythm and Life. They have also completed residencies at the famous spiegel tent and the National Gallery of Victoria. They have also toured internationally, in the UK and Europe, performing at well-known music festivals including Fusion Festival in Germany, the Secret Garden Party, Glade, Sunrise, Edinburgh Fringe, The Hat Fair UK and Aurillac International Street Theatre Festival in France.

Rapskallion are feeling very joyous to be returning to Byron.
We can expect an evening of swaggering joie de vivre with their own nefarious blend of vaudevillian, buccaneering blues folk rock and wonky waltzes in this special sideshow!

This is a very special show for Rapskallion, which will be unlike their previous shows in Byron. It is a cabaret-style show featuring Rapskallion and Vaudevillian Baroness, Miss Friby!

This promises to be a night of ridiculous sensuality and rocking roguery so don’t miss them if you can’t make it to see them at Splendour !

Byron Theatre, Community Centre on Wednesday July 31.
