60s go-go ghosts and diabolical dancing at Night of the Shimmying Dead

Sixties dance troupe The Actionettes are supremely excited to present a wild evening of groovy ghouls, ghosts and go-go! Known for their riotously fun events, London’s original all-girl Sixties dance troupe take over the Buffalo Bar on Saturday 29 October 2011 for an unforgettable evening of vintage horror – get ready for Night of the Shimmying Dead!

Come and see vampire brides driven to a frenzy by the strains of Lavern Baker’s “Voodoo Voodoo”. Recoil in horror as go-go ghosts are summoned in an unholy séance. Be very afraid as The Action Men become possessed by the dancing demon.

Rowdy, sassy all-female garage band The Nuns perform their covers of legendary Sixties band The Monks, the blasphemous sisters only adding to the devilish mayhem. They are supported by The Werewandas, a five-piece combo of indie popsters turned into rockabilly monsters by the witchy power of Wanda Jackson. And special guest Miss Ani from the fabulous retro-pop band The Pipettes will sing their new single “Boo Shuffle” and spin some spooky tunes!

Plus Actionette DJs play foot-stomping soul, r’n’b, garage and rockabilly until the early hours, Evil Elvis comperes, diabolical dance class, hair-raising competition, and more… Prize for the best dressed!
