You Am I frontman Tim Rogers is bringing ‘Liquid Nights in Bohemia Heights’ - his irreverent variety show - to the Brunswick Ballroom next week.

The fourth of its kind, Tim Roger’s eclectic Bohemia Heights shows have become an annual tradition. With interviews, live music and musings presented as the midnight slot variety hour for the fictional town of Bohemia Heights, the show presents an eccentric mix of talent.

Hosted by Tim Rogers, the front man for Australian alternative rock band You Am I, Liquid Nights in Bohemia Heights is set to be a truly surreal and unusual evening.

With an impressively diverse resume, Rogers himself is the perfect host for a variety show – having appeared in the Malthouse Theatre’s production of Woyzeck, featuring music composed by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, as well as working on the 2013 musical thriller film The Boy Castaways.

With live Foley work being delivered by Tony Award nominated sound designer, Russel Goldsmith and music performed by Jonnie Von Goes, Kelly Day and Jane Henry, this is not an event to be missed. Live Nights in Bohemia Heights includes a live band, a live quiz, Poem of the Week, a live call to the Western Highlands Cricket Final (which is now in its 34th week), audience participation and philosophical dilemmas – all sponsored by some questionable local Bohemia Heights sponsors. There is the option to purchase the Dinner & Show ticket at the Brunswick Ballroom, with the kitchen serving dinner from 6:30pm before the show at 8:30.

With one Facebook commenter exclaiming “I would gladly bleed to attend. Totally. I’d sacrifice a small appendage,” you should get in before tickets sell out.
