About the event
What is Fruit Box?
We invite YOU to the stage for drag, comedy, burlesque, dance, lip sync, or live music! Thursdays at My Lover Cindi.
Doors at 6 for signup, event starts from 7. Free entry.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- You sign up at the bar in one of the categories of drag, comedy, burlesque, dance, lip sync, or live music, or something else entirely!
- If you need a song (drag, lip sync, burlesque or dance), you'll state that on the signup form. We'll give you a five minute warning to get up on stage, then we announce you on and you do your thing!
- It doesn't cost anything to sign up and you'll get a drink on us for your bravery!
- This is a low stakes event that invites people with zero performance experience or ability to come and express themselves on stage, or just have silly fun with friends.
- My Lover Cindi is a wheelchair accessible space, including the stage.
- "How long can i perform for?" - For now we are going to keep performances to 5 minutes
- "I want to perform with my friends, is that okay?" - YES. You and your friends can share the spotlight.
- "Do i need to contact you before signing up?" - NO. To keep it low stakes and low effort for patrons, we ask that signup is done on the night
- "I'm a professional performer, can i sign up?" - YES. You can. But please note our standard artist fees are not applicable for this event.
- "What sort of live music can I perform?" - We can cater to 2 mics and 2 instruments and you can perform whatever you like! We have 2 x mic stands. Please bring any instrument stands you may need. No drums.
- "Are minors permitted?" - NO. Sorry, young people! My Lover Cindi operates predominantly as a licensed adult only venue. There are other great organisations doing good stuff for young LGBTIQ+ people, and we can highly recommend folks get in touch with Queer Youth Drop In run by Feast, through the Shine building on Hyde St
My Lover Cindi is an LGBTIQ+ space that has a zero tolerance policy towards racism, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, classism, ageism, whorebobia, and fatphobia. Please be mindful of material that carries any of these themes.
