Tickled Pink @ Word Bar - 2.7.2005

Anything that involved three girls, a well-known male DJ and the words 'Tickled' and 'Pink' would usually raise eyebrows for all the wrong reasons. It's with great enthusiasm (relief), however, that this reviewer gets to report on a first-class debut night that transcended the event's name and, hopefully, enticed the punters to come back for more.

After a minor hiccup in trying to find Word Bar (I should probably read the whole flyer next time), we ventured in to a warmly-lit bar to hear the sounds Danni B had to offer. There was a number of people already in to see the debutante get her groove down, and amidst her own fearful speculation that she wasn't making it happen, the grins and shakers on the dancefloor undoubtedly proved her wrong. A nice mix up of sounds got the punters enjoying the atmosphere, and Danni B handed the decks over to one of Melbourne's busiest, Keltec.

Delivering a fine set of electro, breaks and house, Keltec ensured the night was going to go into overdrive as he paved the way for Miss Chris. With only a handful of gigs under her belt, Miss Chris went beyond her limited experience to produce a set that can only see her becoming one of Melbourne's favourites in no time. If you've not been privvy to her talent, ensure you make it to the next TP.

Dancefloors, during closing sets, are never easy to maintain, but Sass put in a solid effort to round out the evening that left a full dancefloor as the club fell silent to applause from a satisfied group of people who didn't want to leave. Obligatory shouts of 'One more!' during a pause of music made a great lead-in to, ironically, Dyewitness' 'Only if I Had One More'. Nice twist, and nice way to say goodnight to what hopefully will be a continuing series of successful parties.

If you missed it, make sure you're at the next!
