Friday sees Gutterslut’s Nic Fisher join us for the Totally Fetch: Fringe! Vs Mean Girls official afterparty, alongside Hannah Holland, Duchess Of Pork, Kostakis, John Sizzle and Vangelis & Tareq. And to get us in the mood, the lovely Nic made us this totally fetch mixtape which we’ll be alternating between that and re-watching Mean Girls so we’re fully armed with every imaginable (and amazing) line ready for the quote-a-long tomorrow night at the Rio Cinema. Make sure you get your ticket from the Rio’s website!
1. Round Table Knights – So Good (Teenage Mutants Remix)
With Fringe! Film Festival currently taking place at various locations across East London, and the official Mean Girls screening afterparty, Totally Fetch: Fringe! Vs Mean Girls taking over both floors of Superstore with Hannah Holland, Nic Fisher, Duchess Of Pork, Kostakis, John Sizzle and Vangelis & Tareq playing the biggest hits from 2004 and the best bits from the Mean Girls soundtrack it’s going to be like the prom you wished you’d had.
We asked the guys at Fringe! to tell us about about a few of the events they’ve got happening during the festival…
WEDNESDAY: Bob Mizer Fight Club exhibition
The Bob Mizer Foundation and Fringe! present a one-week-only installation sampling later period wrestling films from the estate of legendary photographer, filmmaker and independent publisher Bob Mizer at Studio 1.1 on Redchurch Street.
The opening film, Five Dances, will be screened at Hackney Picturehouse on Thursday 11th April from 9:30pm. Directed by Alan Brown, this will also be the European premiere and is a classic tale about finding love and succes in the big city.
The Hackney Picturehouse will be showing the UK premiere of this documentary about lesbian burlesque star Satan’s Angel whose legendary flaming tassel has been entertaining nightclubs since the early ’60s.
This is the world premiere of the third instalment of Travis Matthews’ In Their Room project. Shot in London during last year’s Fringe! festival, this brand film from the director of I Want Your Love and Interior.Leather.Bar is showing on Saturday 13th April at The Rio from 11:30pm.
With Fringe! Film Festival kicking off around East London tonight, we caught up with organiser Alexander to find out a bit more about their party here next weekend. On the day of the party, Fringe will be hosting a quote-a-long screening of cult teen classic Mean Girls at our wonderful neighbours The Rio cinema, followed by a HUGE afterparty right here at Superstore! Hannah Holland, Nic Fisher (Gutterslut), John Sizzle, Duchess Of Pork and Kostakis will all be raiding their record boxes for fabulous tunes for dancing to. Way better than prom anyway.
For your chance to win a pair of tickets to see Mean Girls and for free entrance to the afterparty, email the correct answer to the following question to email@example.com with the subject “Totally Fetch!” by 10am Tuesday 9th April to be entered into our prize draw.
Who wrote the screenplay to Mean Girls? Is it…
a. Tina Fey
b. Tina Gay
c. Tina Hey!
Ahead of both the screening and the afterparty, we asked Alexander to pick his top five Mean Girls quotes and why he loves them…
Never has feminism been brought to the point so succinctly as by Gretchen Wieners…
All you ever needed to know about sexual health, pregnancy and death by intercourse, as explained by Coach Carr.
Regina George, as seen by her adoring schoolmates. The pretty face of bullying gets away with just about anything. Never has having your face punched been so awesome.
I love Gretchen Wieners and it was hard to choose between Gretchen cracking and Gretchen being really sorry that she’s so popular. But it had to be the latter.
There’s so many good things about this clip I don’t even know where to start. Being half a virgin? Regina’s all carb diet? No, it’s most definitely Karen’s psychic powers. It’s really helpful being clairvoyant.
