Babes in Sin: "Man's Ruin Burlesque Extravaganza"

Vegas has seen a resurgence in the burlesque scene with the LA-based Forty Deuce finding a home at Mandalay Bay and Vegas girls Sin City Grind Kittens performing around town. Now add the Babes In Sin to the list of local talent.

The Babes will be performing at the Cooler Lounge on Saturday the 20th. The next show, "A Man's Ruin Burlesque Extravaganza," looks to bring more of the same, taking place after the first annual Rockabilly Rod Reunion at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

This week's CityLife offers my personal take on the Babes in Sin, as I had a chance to meet and interview most of the girls, with the exception of Zaraa Ra'nna. It was great to meet the girls with their mix of personalities. Kitty Baby and Jenny-O were unexpectedly quiet, letting Evie and Nena do most of the talking. It was interesting that Kitty Baby and Jenny-O, who are Babes-in-training, look like they are using the stage to find a new voice for themselves. Also, most of the girls had parents who performed: show-girl, go-go dancer, musical father, etc...

The girls all have Myspace websites, and I would include all of them if it wasn't for the fact that their pages crash my browser (Safari & Explorer running on my iMac.) The girls know about this. But, on with the show info . . .

Advance tickets for the show are $10 at the Rockabilly Rod Reunion and Bad Attitude Boutique and $12 at the door.
