26/04/14: QX checked out the excitable antics amidst London’s revamped and newly-buzzing King’s Cross as Central Station welcomed a Saturday night crowd for top-class cabaret and more last weekend.
Featuring the larger-than-life talents of DJ Jason Prince, plus outrageous on-stage action from the Drag With No Name, an evening of springtime shenanigans saw a sociable crowd of down-to-earth blokes thronging one of the capital’s best-loved bars into the small hours.
Highlights included pop-lover Jason spinning out a sugar-coated soundtrack of pop ‘n’ dance smashes at the decks before introducing Drag With No Name’s versatile repertoire of top tunes, skits and banter that had us almost falling off our stillies with mirth.
Taking in the likes of Lady Gaga (‘she lives for the applause, she sometimes pisses her drawers’ – ooh missus) a gyrating Susan Boyle performing Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ and a drunken bank holiday fag-hag (‘I Think I’m Gonna Heave Right Now’) this is one cabaret artiste willing to go the extra mile to entertain – and we’ll certainly applaud that.
Central Station is open seven days a week for thrilling cabaret, fantastic food and a diverse line-up of fetish fixtures in the downstairs ‘Underground’ club space!
