THISISPOPBABY announce underground cabaret club series Club Salty


THISISPOPBABY has announced Club Salty a new underground cabaret club happening in Dublin for three nights this December.

The club cabaret takes place over three nights in December at the Racket Space, and comes after Werk, a performance art club that took place in the Abbey a number of years back.

Club Salty happens at The Racket Space at The Bernard Shaw on Thursday November 30th, 8pm, and Friday December 1st at 7pm, Saturday December 2nd at 10pm withthe Cracked Lips: Salty After Party from after midnight the last night Saturday December 2nd.

Full blurb below.

Co-created and co-directed by THISISPOPBABY’s Jennifer Jennings and Phillip McMahon, Club Salty will be whipped up by a stellar team of designers, veteran clubmakers and dancefloor dreamers – and brought to life via a top-secret gaggle of alternative performance giants.

Seasoned underground enthusiasts will remember THISISPOPBABY’s legendary WERK: performance art club which transformed the bowels of the National Theatre, the late-night POPTENT at Electric Picnic, The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne International Arts Festival and beyond.

THISISPOPBABY Art Director Niall Sweeney (one of the key creatives behind iconic queer nights Alternative Miss Ireland, PowderBubble and HAM) leads a design team including the multi award-winning Sarah Jane Shiels and Ellen Kirk on lights and costume respectively. Music director Tom Beech will lead an assemblage of ridiculously glorious outsiders, brought together to form a house band and choir of quirks for three nights only.

Five electric performances of Club Salty, will be topped off by an after party at the Racket Space on the final night: Cracked Lips: Salty After Party. Late night and loud, Cracked Lips is our Saturday night post-Salty lock-in and freshly rimmed disco. Featuring tasty beats, queer delights and surprise special guests all under our dancefloor totem, the mirrorball. Let’s get salty as we sweat away the world outside. Grab your pals, cos we’re going out out.

Tickets for our Saturday night Cracked Lips After Party are €15, or can be purchased as an add-on to any Club Salty tickets for €10.

Delectably daring, this incredible combination of cabaret gig and underground club will be a sumptuous night out, hosted by Baileys, the most delicious Grown-Up Treat. Delicious libations shaken with audacious performance, makes for a thrilling Salty cocktail.
