Burlesque Poetess hosts Trabants, promises sexy times for all

TrabantsIt may be cold and rainy outside, but it will be hot and steamy inside the Plough & Stars tonight. The Trabants, featuring members of Ketman, The Shills, and This Car Up, will be offering up a tasty blend of surf and soul, hosted by the ukulele wielding Burlesque Poetess.

Part Betty Boop and part Muppet, the Burlesque Poetess is a tiny dynamo of sass who’s always prepared to drop trou in the name of poetry. She describes the show thusly:

“As for the Trabants, one can expect to hear instrumental covers ranging from ‘Stewie’s Sexy Party’ theme from ‘Family Guy,' to old school arrangements of ‘Istanbul’ and even songs based on retro-European softcore soundtracks.” She adds that this “suit band with horns” makes for a “totally idiosyncratic dance-inspiring smile-making experience.”

Tonight also features the Poetess, aka Joanna “Jojo” Lazar’s ukulele rendition of songs from David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust album, along with comedy, “unexpected covers and sexy times to be had by all!”

When and Where: Thursday, October 29 at 10:15 pm. Plough & Stars. 912 Massachusetts Avenue, Central Square, Cambridge. Free.
