Dirty Sanchez – 30 November 08

Dirty Sanchez bring their craziness to Perth, and bringing with them The Dudesons, who demonstrate a similar brand of craziness.

It’s all happening at Metro City Capitol on Sunday 3 November 2008.

There are no depths low enough for Dirty Sanchez to sink to in an effort to extract a laugh, a groan, a shriek or a goodly amount vomit from their audience. Whether it is using their head as human dartboards, or sliding along a sandpaper track on their bare ass, The Sanchez show is not for the faint hearted at the best of times.

Hailing from Finland, The Dudesons have been bedfellows with chaos and destruction for over 8 years. Just a peek inside their insane lives will have you sucking your thumb and asking for mummy in no time. From getting a Tabasco treatment in the ass or almost getting killed in a car stunt, The Dudesons bring degradation and hilarity to the live stage like no other…well maybe they have their equals…

Tickets are on sale 30 October (tomorrow) from BOCS for $58.90.

18+ event.

The anticipation for this tour has reached boiling point.

Dirty Sanchez (UK version of the Jackass guys) are coming to Australia for the MTV Video Music Awards and they’ll be doing some live performances around the country.

On Wednesday 9 May they’ll ‘treat’ Perth fans to some cringe-inducingly dangerous stunts and unthinkable gross-out antics at Metropolis in Fremantle.

The Dirty Sanchez crew are three unhinged Welsh boys and one warped Londoner, who came together through their mutual love of skateboarding. Possessing a wilful disregard for their own personal safety, these four lads never cease in their tireless pursuit to destroy the bounds of taste and decency on camera. From shocking the Tokyo Shock Boys into submission to naked paint balling to extreme golfing… it’s all in a day’s work for Pritchard, Dainton, Joyce and Pancho.

This will be an 18+ show.

Tickets are available from BOCS ($46.40), 78 Records, Mills, Planet Video & Beat Music, Karrinyup. On sale 9am Thursday 5 April.

The All Fool’s Medieval Fayre is held on Saturday 31 March 2007 at the lovely Supreme Court in Perth City from 10am to 4pm.

Medieval Clubs will be in attendance, and there will be sword fighting, dark ages combat, fencing, a parade, merchants, minstrels, dancers and more!

Entry is only $5. Though only $3 if you come in an appropriate costume or have a concession card, and children under 12 get in free! Sounds like a great morning or afternoon with the kids!

Check out the WA Medieval Alliance website for places where you can get discounted costume hire!

And see the TAZ Publicity for more info!
