Bourgeois and Maurice

9 Aug

One of the first shows I saw at Underbelly this week was electrifying cabaret duo, Bourgeois and Maurice.   Armed with outrageous costumes and multiple instruments, among them a key-tar, Bourgeois and Maurice bring a little bit of Ga-Ga glam to the world of cabaret.  Their songs sound like catchy pop tunes but the words drip with satire on issues like global warming, European economic crisis and – my personal favourite – the woes of social media.  Some might describe their message as very left-wing, but for those political innocents like myself who don’t really know any better (or care), it’s an entertaining hour of toe-tapping music laced with delightfully biting humour.  Many times throughout their set I found myself thinking “Yeah…yeah you’re right!”

I think anyone who is in the mood for upbeat fun – and a LOT of sequins – will love the sassy musical stylings of Bourgeois and Maurice. ❤
