WHEN they strut on stage, flicking hair and hips this way and that, they look an awful lot like Beyonce. Except there’s six of them. And they’re from Korea. And they’re in Melbourne this Sunday.
Cloud9 Entertainment, who have been responsible for some of Melbourne’s biggest Korean clubbing parties, brought this sassy girl dance group to town last month, and now they’re doing it all over again at Billboard nightclub.
The girls will be performing alongside the SKB B-boy crew and turntable masters Slice n Dice.
SKB Crew can be recognised from their recent stint on Australia’s Got Talent, and crew member Don Napalan placed 14th in last year’s So You Think You Can Dance? With their infectiously energetic breakdance style, SKB Crew won the Australian B-boy Championships in 2007 and travelled to Las Vegas in 2009 for the World Hip Hop International B-boy battles.
Masked DJs Slice n Dice are off to tour the US and Mexico at the end of the year, but not before giving Australia a taste of what they’ll be missing. These guys are a regular on the Melbourne club scene, regularly carving up their infectious electro sound for a beat-hungry crowd.
Supporting Slice n Dice are Dazzy, Gian, G-Mush, Lady D and Richard Boxer, churning out everything from house to RnB to Korean pop.
The first 100 people to buy tickets will score a VIP meet-and-greet with the Black Queen beauties.
Cloud9 Party is on from 10pm, Sunday September 25 at Billboard nightclub, 170 Russell St, Melbourne. Pre-paid tickets are $25, call 0412 647 600 or 0433 232 516 to purchase.
