Neat Neat Neat Presents
“The writing process was done with an open heart,” says Kugel of The Coathangers’ new album ‘The Devil You Know’. “Everything that came before had to go away. Whatever hang-up, whatever thing we were holding onto, it had to go away. And we started there, at ground zero.”
The album title stems from an old adage whispered at a friend’s wedding; we settle when we’re afraid of the unknown. It’s a theme that runs through every song on the album, and even though the band insists they were writing songs about other peoples’ pain, they acknowledge that the old saying applies to their band as well. We get comfortable, we get scared, and we refuse to change. But with ‘The Devil You Know’, The Coathangers lost their fear, and that allowed them to shed the baggage of the past. “Why are we living in these cells we built for ourselves?” Kugel asks. “That’s been the great thing about this record. It’s been honest and confrontational… but not in a shitty way.”

Sassy Cabaret – Sassy in Space
Space; the final frontier. The Sassy Cabaret Club are back for our 4th consecutive year to seek out new sass and new glittery civilisations and boldly go where no cabaret show has gone before! Expect sassy storm troopers, fantastic femme-bots and some seriously saucy alien invasions!
Sassy Cabaret is a full sit down burlesque show followed by an after party where you can rub shoulders with the cast and crew and let your glittery hair down.

Any group bookings please let us know ahead of time, so we can accommodate your lovely selves appropriately.
