Vikki Stone & The Flashbacks: Big Neon Letters (Corrie McGuire For Objective Talent)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Vikki Stone uses bouncy pop songs to tell the story of her quests for fame and love. Vivacious, naughty and self-deprecating, she has so much energy you wonder if she’s going to spin off the stage due to sheer musical momentum. The strength of this show lies in her performance, as Stone’s big brown eyes sparkle at the crowd with infectious enthusiasm. Slides referring to song lyrics are played behind her – an idea which can distract from the songs at times, although when they done well, they are really successful. Stone makes effective and unapologetic use of her raunchy sense of humour – her dirtiest jokes draw both disgusted groans and big belly laughs from the crowd all at once.

Gilded Ballon Teviot, 3 – 28 Aug (not 15), 11.00pm (00.00am), £8.50 – £10.50, fpp163.
