Is there anything better than a bit of creative, raucous fun after an opening night at a local art gallery? We think not. If you agree, you'll love the monthly after pARTy at Chippendale bar Freda's. Held the first Wednesday of the month and curated by a different artist each time, the after pARTy is invariably an epic affair.
For the first edition of 2017, immerse yourself in a feminist punk Arabian night(mare) created by multidisciplinary artist Leila El Rayes. Expect live Arabian drumming, genre-bending music by Melbourne-based DJ SEZZO SNOT, and El Rayes bellydancing wearing a skirt of knives (yes, really). This is an afterparty that is bound to be particularly memorable.
