Kitty Kitty Bang Bang

Posted on Wed, Nov 12, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Release Date: 2008-11-12

The lost art of burlesque is making its way back into the mainstream with Austin-based variety troupe Kitty Kitty Bang Bang. Paying homage to the early glam era of burlesque and vaudeville, these six women use their sexuality to express their individuality, power and humor, and have been serving it up since 2002. Their raucous shows feature pieces ranging from lively can-cans and retro-raunch to steamy film-noir tributes and some ’80s hits — the kitties are known for their diverse shows, grand-scale ensemble numbers, and fondness for gin. These wayward women have sold out legendary Austin clubs such as Antone’s and Stubbs, and are also the founders of the legendary Texas Burlesque Festival. $5, several performances between 10pm-2am, Hooligan’s Bar & Grill, 13920 N IH 35 Live Oak, (210) 654-4444.
