Snap Crackle Pop
Published 25 Feb 2020

Adelaide University’s previous UniBar site is unrecognisable as Melbourne-based Poof Doof’s Snap Crackle Pop takeover the venue. Bass throbs through the floor as the piercing green and red lights flash through the crowd as Grove from Frankenstein: How To Make a Monster tears up the DJ decks. 

Towering queens Karen from Finance and Daisy Confused wander through the crowd for photos and shots, before taking to the stage for a lip sync show. Karen from Finance’s ‘9 to 5’ routine is uninspired, but brings up the energy of the room with an easy singalong.

Daisy Confused is striking as she strips and syncs to Shania Twain’s ‘Man! I Feel Like a Woman’, showing off her legs that seem to go for days.

Dollar Bin Darlings pumping Disco with a capital D provides a great grounding for a genuinely fun dance party.

With all walks of life moving their bodies on the dancefloor, there is an electricity in the air – one of acceptance and love. This is what separates Snap Crackle Pop from a regular club night, and makes it one helluva party.

For those with the stamina, Poof Doof crackle on into the wee hours of the morning.

This review is based on the first 2.5 hours of the 6 hour performance time.
