Suicide Girls Blackheart Burlesque returns to the Showbox on Wednesday, November 7th. This will be the first date on the girls’ current tour, which showcases wonderful performances by some of the Suicide Girls’ pin-ups. Suicide Girls, a website with a community, is indeed known for its commitment to its belief that: “What some people think makes us strange, or weird, or fucked up, we think is what makes us beautiful.” Agreed. The variety of artistic references in the burlesque, from Napoleon Dynamite to Black Panther, is truly amazing. The show is 18+, with a few tickets still available.
Suicide Girls Blackheart Burlesque made its first Seattele appearance of the year in May. Another bit of good news: they’ll be here again tomorrow! We’ll have more details on that in just a few minutes. First, enjoy some marvelous photos of the girls from the spring visit. There were fan dances, a black panther, Napoleon Dynamite, hula hoops & more. Who can say what gorgeous things will happen tomorrow? Very exciting.
Artist: Zara Larsson
Song: “Ruin My Life”
Why You Want to Watch: Directed by Charlotte Rutherford, “Ruin My Life” is the first single and video from Swede Larsson’s upcoming third album. The colors and sets in this one are amazing, as is the exquisite Larsson. Rutherford’s directed videos for many female artists, including Marina & The Diamonds and the Aces.
Cool Cover: Cosmic Kitten‘s Lobotomy
Details: Downey, California’s Cosmic Kitten keeps the cat theme going on their third album cover, featuring a purple cat performing a lobotomy on a person. Scary. Look at all those tubes. Could be fodder for nightmares, but cute cat.
Swedish singer Tove Styrke recently played at the Tractor Tavern in support of her third studio album, Sway, released earlier this year. It was the last show for Tove and her two-member backing band during the US leg of the Sway Tour, which is continuing now in Europe. It was an elaborate stage for the venue with hundreds of individually lit white roses – and Tove passed out fresh red roses to the audience near the end of her set. Young singer-songwriter Au/Ra opened.
