Baby Lame’s RIOT – Review – ★★★★★
Baby Lame’s ultimate punk drag vaudeville revue took over Deptford’s secret riverside venue Shipwright for a RIOT of delicious debauchery.
Baby Lame was the punk DIY hostess with the mostest, and proved yet again that she is in a drag league of her own. She warmed up a slightly-too-chilled audience through sheer passion and power of personality, and kept that mood high all night.
The venue itself – something of a hidden gem, hidden away behind high walls and (usually) imposing security gates was a star performer itself. The garden looked beautiful as darkness fell, and thankfully the rain stayed away (otherwise, this could’ve been a washout). It will be interesting to see what happens next, given the impending redevelopment of the surrounding area (formally the Deptford Dockyard).
