“Swipe on a sharp wing, lace up your boots and slip into something smokin': PASTEL Magazine and Betty's Espresso present STILETTO RELIEF, a stage-burning degustation and fundraiser for those displaced by the destructive Vulture Street unit fires earlier in May.
Enjoy poetry and comedy performance direct from PASTEL Magazine's PASPlanet of PASPals, live music by local beat-makers blazin' up the Brisbane scene, titillating burlesque and sickening drag acts to get you hot under the collar... all with a delicious bevvy or cocktail in hand from the Betty Bar.
Bring cash! $20 on the door to go towards those struggling with food, clothing, long-term housing and distress in the wake of a senseless fire that's claimed whole histories of tenants left de-homed. Anything you can give is deeply appreciated.
Shows start 6:30PM! See you there, hot stuff.”
Stiletto Relief was an incredible opportunity to produce a collaboration between Brisbane’s myriad of eclectic talents and showgirls, supporting not only our friends affected by the Vulture St fires, but true contributors to the city’s arts scene left with nothing.
Working with long-time collaborators Betty’s Espresso, our fundraising expectations were well exceeded, and our personal investment humbled at the wealth of warm reception and eager participation from performers and our audience alike.
Who would ever have guessed as much magic could happen in the picket-fence alleys of West End?
