This month we go SCI-FI MENTAL with an evening of out-of-this-world themed entertainment.
On the DJ front this month we have as a special guest "someguynamedfuz" who used to DJ (although he claims not to be such a thing) for Moon Safari, one of the original and best Lounge/exotica nights in Edinburgh.
On the Dancing lady front we have some new faces (well new to us), Miss Angel D'light - a tattooed goddess, Tsui - a Suicide Girl and Gypsy Charm - a burlesque educationalist.
Plus we may have the return of Miss 'Schwindel, providing she can align with our reality for the evening, but then again I'm sure we can forgo her attendance if it furthers the completion of the second Alleschwindel album.
What a lovely evening we will be having and a fine oppertunity to explore your futuristic dress sense (for those that don't make the effort we will force them to don tin foil hats), plenty of fishnet wookies, dirty droids, barbarellas, trekkie tarts and mutant major toms.

Studio 24, Edinburgh
More often than not, the ‘cheese’ club formula of drunk clientele, £1 drinks and the theme from Minder makes for a sub-par evening. What a surprise then to stumble across Sleazy Cheezy (the self-proclaimed purveyors of ‘carnivalesque cabaret’); a great new way to fill a Friday night. Resident DJs Johann Von Sleaze and Miss Hope Eternal provide a miscellaneous aural backdrop of ska, pop, and more importantly Europe’s Final Countdown. Tonight also featured a visual feast in the form of The Ministry of Burlesque (ladies in states of undress with revealing balloon popping dances), live performances from a Frank Sinatra impersonator, and Miss Schwindel from Alleschwindel - a kind of 1930’s Eastern European electro cabaret performance. For £3, this is money well spent. Sleazy’s is gathering momentum and fans, and the range of music played means that most tastes will be catered for. Don’t be put off by the mention of cheesy songs; it is only one element in this barrage of entertainment.
