The title seems a bit redundant (doesn't a burlesque show always a grind house?) but Olivia Bellafontaine's Pussy Bang Bang burlesque show is a perfect union between bad girl movie heroines from classic Grindhouse films and saucy pinup dancers sashaying across the stage. Packed with enough references to make Tarantino raise a glass, this deliciously campy movie fest screens projections of grindhouse films from the '60s and '70s such as the Pam Grier blaxploitation classic Foxy Brown, the notorious Nazi horror spectacle Ilsa of the SS, women-in-cages flicks, the Japanese pinky violence stunner Sex and Fury, and many more, brought to life by Bellafontaine's troupe of badass femmes. Can't get enough? Stick around for the “double feature” encore show at 10:30 p.m.
