The Pretty Things Peepshow features a hot chick who swallows swords. (What else do you need to know?) This vintage -burlesque-style performance includes Miss Heather Holiday, a corset-clad bombshell with a talent for downing sharp objects we mean swords, dudes. Keep it in your pants. The rest of the cast includes talent from punk rock-style Playboy outlets like Suicide Girls and the Bros Grim Sideshow. Expect to see song-and-dance numbers from tattooed hotties who are just as comfortable fist pumping to Slayer as they are singing and dancing in their panties. Youll also have in-the-flesh encounters with lookers like Bettina May, this generations internationally renowned pinup queen. If she isnt sporting enough ink, then check out Angelica Insectavora, a voluptuous vixen covered from face to toe in tattoos. 8 p.m. Meridian, 1503 Chartres.
