ED2013 5/5 Reviews ED2013 Cabaret Reviews

Lady Rizo (Assembly)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

Lady Rizo’s performance offers the perfect example of why cabaret can be so much more exciting than your average concert or music recital. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous with a killer voice, she’s also incredibly funny and a little bit bizarre. During her set we were treated to a taste of some original numbers that will appear on her debut album later this year. She also sang a lively Pixies cover followed by a hilarious rendition of Jamie Foxx’s Grammy award winning ‘Blame It’. Stripping, drinking and stardust are encompassed as this sexy diva commands the stage. So much so, her band are as enthralled (and slightly intimidated) by her and her strange antics as the audience.

Assembly Checkpoint, until 25 Aug (not 12, 19), 7.40pm.
