Spotlight On: Bernie Dieter's Little Death Club at Underbelly Festival
What do I need to know?
  A gin soaked, Weimar-punk jazz band, breathtaking circus and fire-breathing sideshows, a drag queen draped across the bar, a morose mime drowning his sorrows in a bottle of red, and a bearded lady dancing in the shadows…
