"I will be opening my performance with 'Nobody Does It Better' by Carly Simon. I will be singing to the audience for the first half, then eventually spot my dildo in the crowd, pick it up and start singing to it . . . I'll leave the rest as a surprise," says IGBY Lizzard of her appearance at Fuck U Friday on May 25.
"IGBY Lizzard is a new queen to the Toronto scene. She's made her way across the great Canadian Prairies all the way from Edmonton, Alberta," says Bryen Dunn, the event's organizer. "Her performing history encompasses many aspects from drag shows. From nightclub circuit parties all the way to your parents' anniversary party. She is ready to show you a good time.”
IGBY will be joined by Devine Darlin, Boy Scream and Miss Fluffy Souffle. While Devine Darlin is a Toronto regular, Miss Fluffy Souffle is a relatively new face. Recently dubbed the Queen of Parkdale, Fluffy has just completed a two-city tour of Thunder Bay and Montreal. A very welcome new kind of nasty.
"Boy Scream is a successful teen protégé of the legendary Lexi Tronic," Dunn says. "She’s been featured in a live naked performance-art show in Winnipeg’s legendary Plug In art gallery but is most known for her nude, lewd and crude sexual performances with her mentor.”
With DJs Triple X and Starboy spinning tunes from the '60s all the way to the '90s - with the necessary 21st-century beat thrown in - Dunn says, “Expect the unexpected."
Fuck U Friday, May 25, 10:30pm. Buddies, 12 Alexander St. No cover.
