A Sneak Peek at our featured performer: FEM APPEAL
Hey Hey Ladies and Gents, hope to see you tonight for another wild and wonderful installment of SHAKEN AND STIRRED. This week we are featuring the electric FEM APPEAL, bringer of light and producer of Kitty Nights at Bar on A. Joining her in the cast are the GEMINI RISING and ALBERT CADABRA. Getting her heart all aflutter for her Sugar Shack Debut is newbie COCO MASALA and giving you great go-go all night long is TINY D! DJ JESS is back in the house spinning the tunes you have come to know and love and as always RUNAROUND SUE and SCOOTER PIE will be heading the shenanigans! Go-Go starts at 10pm and the first burlesque set is at 10:30. Come early for the pre-show rooftop cookout and enjoy complimentary shots after the burlesque sets. If you enter our shiny new raffle you may even when our signature Shaken and Stirred prize package: handcrafted pasties, an exclusive DJ Jess mix and an autographed thank you note from the cast.
If you missed last week, check out Miss Scooter Pie's weekly recap:
We had a jam-packed, slam-dunk of a show this week, my friends- check it out (and wipe the drool off your face): Dottie Dynamo shook it all night as our gogo/stage kitten extraordinaire. Corvette LeFace made us think naughty thoughts about church during her S&S debut. Guest Voodoo Onyx played strip poker with a volunteer from the audience.. and lost (or should we say, the crowd won). Our caboose Minnie Tonka, having recently returned from a two-week stint in Alaska, closed things out for the night but (..butt) good, and featured performer Harvest Moon amazed us all with her thrilling, superbendy stunts and all-around hotness. We raffled off another super special Shaken & Stirred care package to a lucky winner, and our guest dj KICKED ASS right up til 2am. As RunAround Sue would say, "WHAT!!!!!". See you soon xoxo!
And now, On with the Peaking!!:
Featured Performer Profile – FEM APPEAL
1. What does Burlesque mean to you?
It's the best of Comedy, Improv, Dance and Halloween all rolled into 4 minutes or less.
It's DIY and I'm in charge!
AND a great way to channel my insanity.
2. How did you choose your name?
I wanted to embody a kick-ass superhero or secret agent and I thought of Emma Peel from The Avengers. Fem Appeal is a play on her name and it also works 'cause I often impersonate dudes.
3. Who was your first celebrity crush?
Peter DeLuise from 21 Jumpstreet.
4. What are you reading these days and why?
Anthony Bourdain's The Nasty Bits.
I love men, food and traveling and he has a wonderful way of depicting the passions of the mind, body and spirit. Food is sexy.
5. What is your favorite performance anecdote?
I had my heart set on doing Pennywise The Clown (Stephen King's IT) for Hotsy Totsy's Halloween show, but they had booked ClownKong and I didn't want to step on his clown shoes, so I came up with my Sleestak (Land of the Lost) act. A guy came up to me afterwards and said, "OMG, the crystals! You had the crystals!"
That made my night. That's who I like to perform for.
6. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku:
A lover of leaps
Ready the teleporter
The path to my dreams
7. How can the people find out more about you?
Go to Facebook and LIKE Kitty Nights @ Bar On A or egads, I still have an active MySpace account.
