Embrace your queerness with Dirty Versachi’s new single ‘Rainbow Light Beam’. Co- produced by Andrew McEwan (Huntly), mixed by Tim Watt (MUTO, Golden Features) and mastered by Klaus Hill (PNAU, Ministry of Sound)

The non-binary artist and drag queen Dirty Versachi is quickly becoming known for their powerful songs exploring relationships, queer identity, and gender.

Witness the birth of Dirty Versachi and the launch of their new single ‘Rainbow Light Beam’ at Miscellania August 25th. The event which has been supported by Hunger Digital and the City of Melbourne will see audiences embraced by Dirty Versachi for an enigmatic experience as Dirty performs as their alien Drag Queen self, embodying super star energy. The night will also see the unveiling of Dirty Versachi’s spaceship designed and created by industrial designer Remi Freer. Supporting them on the night will be local favourites Huntly and JULAI performing live, as well as DJ sets by Tiny Text and DJ Ruby and drag performances by Mora Money and Loxy.

JULAI hails from the southeastern suburbs of Naarm. JULAI represents his community and Pasifika identity unapologetically in a way that screams individuality, power and strength. The duo Huntly creates music that lingers on the borders of experimental R&B and live electronica with their signature sound of “doof you can cry to”. On top of the live acts, choreographer and performance artist Lachlan Purcell will be debuting their drag person Loxy. Loxy’s work nestles itself between theatre and dance practices and regularly incorporates other disciplines to provoke its form. Audiences will also be able to enjoy a performance from Trans Wiradjuie Drag Queen Mora Money. The self-described “chaotic clown bimbo” brings the heat with their take on drag, showing a different side to the artform.

Keeping the energy high and cheeky throughout the night will be Tiny Text and DJ Ruby behind the decks, with house and techno blends that have an affinity for the power of femininity.

8pm - late, Thursday August 25th.

This event will take place on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty has not been ceded, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be.

Free entry for First Nations people, please get in touch.
