Granny Bingo with special guests Peter Hitchener & Becky Lou!
The 86, Fitzroy / 7pm

The controversial rockstars of bingo Edith Vale and Maureen McGuillicuddy are back with their monthly bingo night. These two stalled warts of the international bingo circuit are so far right wing; anti-equality, anti-feminist, anti-immigration and anti-personal hygiene, that even their family stopped visiting a long time ago.
Entry is $10 on the door for the whole night.

Bortier Okoe
Bar 303, Northcote / 8pm

Well-known for his extraordinary musical gifts and exciting innovations as composer, master traditional drummer, multi-instrumentalist and singer, Bortier is a popular and sought after performer, delivers songs in English, and his native Ghanaian languages of Ga, Twi, and Ewe. Bortier Okoe truly is one of Africa’s most inspirational musicians. Born in Ghana, West Africa, Bortier was a child prodigy who spent much of his childhood travelling Ghana with his family in their music and dance performance group, Nyomor Baatsor, and it’s not surprising to learn that he was recognised by the Ghanaian government as a master drummer and cultural ambassador when he was only seventeen years old.
Go and see Bortier and his band at bar 303 this Friday 28th of July!
