Melbourne’s sparkly showgirl, Miss Friby (aka Elizabeth Dawson-Smith), is bringing her big haired glamour, razor sharp wit and bent burlesque to the Byron Brewery on Thursday, 8 January.

Hot off the festival circuit, 7-piece Portland band, The Underscore Orkestra, joins Melbourne’s sparkly show girl, Miss Friby, for a wild tornado of exotic glamour and sequins, gypsy jazz, dance and comedy.

Treasured-Memories-Photography-Miss-Friby-1357Described by UK comedian Dawn French as ‘strange and frothy and original and fresh’, Miss Friby’s preposterous acts of showmanship, bent burlesque and vaudeville mayhem are sure to bring a smile to your face.

The second set features the toe-tapping gypsy, jazz and New Orleans street style music of The Underscore Orkestra (USA), guaranteed to perk your package and get you up and dancing! They are joined onstage by three members of Irish bellydance troupe, Suadela.

The Underscore Orkestra is an ever-changing collective of 30 musicians from the US, Australia, NZ, Mexico, France, Ireland and everywhere in-between.

Intrepid band leader and multi-strumentalist, Jorge Kachmari, is the only constant member and has been on the road for over 10 years doing what he loves – ‘changing the world just a little bit and making people happy’.
