POP MUSIC / Centrefold: Freak Show: Almodovars droogs turn out in force for Kika bash
Tuesday 28 June 1994
Thursday's bash at Brixton Fridge (to boost HIV and AIDS centre, London Lighthouse) can't promise Maddie but who needs her when there's Lily Savage, Yazz and Boy George, plus Almodovar and his cast, one of whom will sport the Gaultier-designed dress (a floor-length number with chest-plates blown asunder, grenade-like, to reveal cherry-nippled latex breasts) which London Transport banned from Kika posters. There'll be classy grub and a 'mystery band, but stuff your purses full: Almodovar and Gaultier rarities, and unique Levi's donations, will be up for auction, though Antonio Banderas won't, so you can stop rubbing your hands. Tickets are limited (you'll feel elite if you get in, and tragic if you don't). Get to the Fridge by 8pm, though, to see Almodovar and his droogs arrive by London Underground. On second thoughts, better make that 10pm.
8pm-3am Wednesday 30 June, The Fridge, Brixton Hill, SW2; call Ticketmaster (071-244 4444).
