'Glow' IRL Round 2
All-female wrestlers and DJs descend on Evie's Disco Diner for its second IRL 'Glow' party.
Glitter, spandex and a giant wrestling ring will descend on Fitzroy when Evie's Disco Diner holds a second round of its IRL Glow party.
Glow, for the uninitiated, is the glam, action-filled Netflix show about women's wrestling. It's fiction, set in the 80s and headed up by Alison Brie (who's both a baddie and a badass) and it was inspired by a 2012 documentary of the same name (also about women's wrestling).
It has gained a bit of a cult following — with its second season hitting the air a few months back — and so have Evie's IRL versions. The first one sold out in three days, so its hosting another.
The event sees (real) Aussie female wrestlers competing in a pop-up wrestling ring, after appropriately 80s makeovers, and an after-party with all-female DJs. There's also a best-dressed comp, so whip out your sparkly spandex, leg warmers and OTT wigs — the winner will score themselves a $100 drink voucher.
Tickets for Glow IRL Round 2 go on sale at 6pm on Friday, October 19.
