Described as “The undisputed hit of the Edinburgh Fringe”, Frisky and Mannish have received a five star review from Time Out for their “School of Pop” show which skewers hit pop songs with hilariously barbed re-interpretations.
Whether it’s their mash-up of Kate Bush as sung by Kate Nash or their Weimar Republic version of the Friends theme tune, Frisky and Mannish bring a shockingly high degree of actual musical talent and satirical panache to the hugely under-rated genre of the spoof song.
And they’re appearing at White Mischief’s New Year’s Eve show at Proud Cabaret. Take a look at their unique twist on Christmas favourite “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by clicking on the image below.

Blending hip hop MCing with vintage jazz, there are few bands who can get a party jumping like The Correspondents, which is why we’re so excited to have them on the main stage at our “Journey To The Centre Of The Earth” party on Saturday 23 May.
Having surprised crowds with their antics at The Secret Garden and Glastonbury last year, The Correspondents have become a super-hot name on the music scene and by this time next year it’s possible they’ll be selling out venues the size of Scala themselves.Continue Reading
Co-founders and hosts of White Mischief are Tough Love, who will be appearing on the main stage to celebrate the launch of their first ever mini-album.
Blending tribal, world-influenced drums and percussion with quirky, acerbic English lyrics, six-piece pop band Tough Love have been described by the Guardian as “the afrobeat Scissor Sisters” and by Flavorpill as “tribal pop ambassadors”.Continue Reading
Delinquent showgirl Ruby Blues will be familiar to some of you as queen of Glastonbury’s crazed Trash City area; she also appeared at the last White Mischief. Now she’s back, playing the main stage at White Mischief on Saturday June 7 with her twisted, psychotic electro-dub band Hooligan Night.
Hooligan Night formed in 2006 when production maestro Nik Diezel met apocalyptic pin-up Ruby Blues, one of the superstars of the London neo-burlesque scene.Continue Reading
It’s a mission at White Mischief to find live musical artistes who are willing to step over the precipice with a bold visual and sonic identity, and The Outside Royalty are a perfect example. Using cello, violin and synths to create a sound they call “electro chamber rock”, and based out of a squalid Victorian terrace, few bands could be as well suited to the steampunk vaudevile of a White Mischief show as this six piece. So we’re looking forward to welcoming them in on June 7. Read on for photos and a video.Continue Reading
When we started White Mischief, there was only one rule about the kinds of bands we’d book. It doesn’t matter what genre, what style of music they make…as long as they are completely different, brilliant live and a world away from the dour indie fodder that can be found at the usual toilet venues. If there’s an act that embodies the spirit of what we’re looking for in terms of risque theatricality and undeniable uniqueness it’s Ebony Bones. You may have heard Ebony Bones on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in The World… now get ready to catch her and her band live in the flesh as headliners of the second stage at White Mischief. Read on for videos, photos and laudatory press quotes galore…Continue Reading
The next White Mischief show, themed “Around The World In 80 Days”, is all about taking partygoers on a trip around the world. Who better as a headliner, then, than Oojami – a global band who combine Turkish influences with London beats and Sufi dancers, have played everywhere from Glastonbury to the Royal Albert Hall and whose music has appeared on TV shows, movies and compilations galore. Oojami will be thrilling audiences on the main stage at White Mischief on Saturday June 7 – for more information read on.Continue Reading
White Mischief regulars will know that our shows are full of unforgettable happenings around the venue as well as on the main stages. By way of a few spontaneous sets around the building, Ta Mère will share their inimitable gypsy jazz up close and personal.
So who are Ta Mère? Three guys-about-town, on the town, getting down and swinging hard. A creation by special request of the BBC for the 2007 Glasgow Film Festival, they’ve been catapulted from these auspicious beginnings onto the London scene.Continue Reading
Bringing some glamour to the White Mischief second stage on June 7, Tricity Vogue presents her own charming blend of slink and sass – the music she likes to call “cheeky jazz”. Think Peggy Lee after a few too many cocktails.
A vintage songstress with her tongue firmly in her cheek, Tricity’s glamorous cabaret jazz act involves fabulous gowns, her very own horn section, and a small pink ukelele. Miss Vogue’s mischievously witty music harks back to a bygone era while at times sounding suspiciously contemporary.Continue Reading
Appearing in our second stage “Moon Room”, Pearlsworld bring you their unique, dark, comedy musical cabaret. Madame Pearl tells the story ,through accordion driven songs, of her lost innocence & (melo)dramatic decline… from a demure girl to psychotic killer.Continue Reading
