On Saturday, March 26th, Southpaw will present the Wasabassco Burlesque Review 2, a night of live music and the best burlesque acts from the five boroughs starring pin-up cutie Peekaboo Pointe and hosted by the hula hooping Miss Saturn. Wasabassco Burlesque Review 2 features more than 15 performers, including a snake charmer, tarot card reader, belly dancer, comic, The Wasabassco-a-gogo Dancers, a mermaid, a magician, and more with: Aimee Lynn, Albert Cadabra, Anias Sin, Anita Cookie, the reigning Miss Rivington: Darlinda Just Darlinda, Gothic belly dance by Maiiah, Mama Caliento, Mama Lou, Molly Crabapple, Little Brooklyn, Nasty Canasta, and Scott Rayow.
Peekaboo Pointe, the star of Wasabassco Burlesque Review 2, is a come-to-life pin-up cutie reminiscent of a Petty Girl. With a BFA in modern dance, Peekaboo performs many of her acts in a pair of ballet Pointe shoes. ?I want to emulate the burlesque dancers from the past, and bring back their lost movements and style,? Says Peekaboo. ?But while I?m resurrecting history, I add a little modern flare to my dances.?
Jenny McGowan (a.k.a Miss. Saturn) is the quintessential show person. She creates original performance work that combines vaudeville antics, saucy burlesque, audience interaction, impeccable timing, sparkling costumes, wigs, accents, booty shakin' music (from Le Tigre to Zorba the Greek) and up to 40 hula hoops to create of a one of a kind performance. This is why this consummate performer is a mainstay of New York City's top burlesque and vaudeville scene and why Time Out NY says Miss Saturn ?personifies the sequined forces of burlesque and racy comedy.?
Wasabassco Burlesque Review 2 will kick off at 9pm with live music from Michael Leviton, whose nautically themed love songs played on a ukulele will entice Gotham?s famous mermaid, Julie Atlas Muz, to flirt with him. The Village Voice says Michael ?seduces listeners with similarly warm vocals, tender tunes, and booming charisma.? Leviton, just signed by Smith Street Records, will release his debut album this summer.
Following Leviton?s Poseidonesque crooning will be Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co., the little trio with the big hillbilly sound. Producing original "ballads, boogies & blues" (as is their motto) in a lively and free-wheeling style that bridges the gap between rockabilly and classic Country & Western music, the "S.I.T. & Die" lineup consists of singing accompanied by electrified guitars and doghouse bass -- and is guaranteed to satisfy your most exacting needs in quality-built hillbilly entertainment!
This Burlesque-a-palooza is the mastermind of Brooklyn based burlesque barons Andy Heidel and William Morton who currently produce the Wasabassco Cabaret Burlesque on 2nd Fridays at Sputnik in Clinton Hill.
