Filmmaker John Waters has described Renny Kodgers as "the bastard child of Willie Nelson and Carlotta". Need we say more?
The MCA is one brave institution. On July 31, it'll be handing its insides over to the glamorous Renny Kodgers, for the next incarnation of ARTBAR. Kodgers is a hero of Sydney's underground cabaret scene, and you may have heard him not so long ago testing your brain power on FBi's Renny Kodgers Quiz Hour. He's lately been busy winning over hearts at Club 34b, Oxford Art Factory, The Red Rattler, Carriageworks, Parklife and Field Day.
The honky-tonkin', rock-n-rollin' legend is promising to take participants on a night of part-country, part-sweaty-summery-city shenanigans. There'll be line dancing with Janene Lawson (aka Ms Bossy Boots), who runs one of Sydney's best line dancing clubs. There'll be crooning and swooning with Elvis Presley. There'll be fortune-tellin' via Mr Kodgers crystal ball. There'll be unpredictable DJ sets.
If all the action works up an appetite or the predictions prove overwhelming, you'll be well taken care of with themed snacks and beverages.
