Japan Girls Nite this Tuesday
Thanks to some ticket lovin from my Metrobloggin compatriot Jason, I got to see the Suicide Girls Burlesque show on Wednesday. And, yeah, it was a good time. These women are Hugh Hefner’s worst nightmare. I was especially fond of the girl that started out dressed as Hunter S. Thompson and then transmogrified into a carrot-spitting bunny. It was the stuff of strangely erotic nightmares.
The surprise highlight of the evening was the opening band: Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re. The Japanese trio sprang from sugary harmonies to angry thrash and back again, bouncing around the stage like angry, adorable Muppets. In between each song, the lead singer and guitarist chirped, “TankyouverymuchSanFrancisco!”
If you missed them on Wednesday, you’ve got one more chance before they leave town. On Tuesday, November 8, they’re playing “Japan Girls Nite” with two other bands at Studio Z (8pm, $10 cover). Be there.
