With a name like Hellz Kitten, is there any doubt this LFF co-founder and producer is an animal lover?

Hellz is owned by Snoop, a 14-year-old black cat with a well-developed diva muscle. Hellz took Snoop in when the feisty feline’s first family couldn’t keep her, all the way back in 2002, and the two have been happily sharing glitter ever since.

Yaaassss Queen

Snoop spends her days sleeping in the sunshine, stalking birds on the fire escape and posting pics to her Instagram account, hamilsnoop. Snoop is tolerant of the fact her mom is producing a show to benefit rescue dogs, but just barely. Then again, Snoop is kind of a bitch, so who cares what she thinks.

Come to Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties at the Met Room on February 18 and see for yourself what a fantastic night it’s going to be – all to benefit Pilots to the Rescue. Burlesque, boylesque, magic, sideshow and singing – it’ll be a night even cat-lovers can get behind.

We are excited to welcome Tina Tassels back as our host for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties. Tina bills herself as a “Tassel Twirler, Plus Size Pinup, Producer, Emcee, Spreader of Self-Love,” and we couldn’t be more excited to have her happy, shiny energy light up the Met Room stage on Feb. 18.

Tina does not have a puppy, but says if she ever gets one, it will be a rescue, because “they are the most interesting choice.” We agree completely! Which is why proceeds for this show will benefit Pilots to the Rescue, an organization that saves animals from euthanasia by rescuing them from kill-shelters and delivering them to loving homes that give them a second chance. It promises to be a great night, so hurry and get your tickets!

Somewhere in the realm between burlesque and drag you will find Chardonnay LaTease, the Queen of Wine, who joins us Feb. 18 all the way from Albany, NY. This impressive impresario hosts Burlesque on the Rocks, a monthly show at Capital District nightspot Rocksand is also an actor and producer. Chardonnay has rescue pup named Louie, and this is his story:

My Louie was rescued from a home that abused and neglected him. He became part of my life…we spend the days lazy in the park or cuddled up on the bed. Dogs are meant to be loved and they give love back. He is not the most perfect or normal dog there is, but he is mine. After his years before me, I make sure he does not go without and I give him lots of food and hugs.

Clearly, Louie is #oneluckypup!

We hope you can join us on Feb 18 at the Met Room to support Pilots to the Rescue, an org that goes far and wide to bring luck and love to puppies in shelters across the U.S. who are in danger of being euthanized. A great show for a great cause! Click here for more info.

Step right up for Schadenfreude Circus

Step right up for Schadenfreude Circus

SchadeCircusFB: HooliganCentral

If you’re tired of the same old “dinner and a movie” date night, we’d like you to meet Lazlo and Lady Riggy, also known as Schadenfreude Circus. These two self-described “normal people with abnormal jobs” bring old-school circus sideshow to the masses. Intrigued? In their own words,

“we live and travel the country, performing at fairs, nightclubs and other special events, setting up and tearing down in the blink of an eye. With a flash of glitter and the spark of a lighter, you might not know we were even there if not for the sinking feeling of ‘Is that even humanly possible?’ etched into your mind.

When not performing as The Schadenfreude Circus, we can be found playing house with Wallenda and Gonzo the ball pythons, Boa Fett the St. Lucia boa constrictor and Poobah the miniature schnauzer who is an obedience school dropout but excellent at three card monte.”

We are overjoyed to have them join us for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties at the Met Room on Feb. 18. They promise to spice up an already sizzling evening with some marvelous feats guaranteed to delight you. We hope you can join us, because proceeds from this show will benefit Pilots to the Rescue, an org that helps save animals from euthanasia.

LFF Co-founder and producer Ruby Mechant is passionate about many things, but rescue animals in particular. Here are some of her “babies” and how they came to be part of her sparkly universe.

In her own words:

Cleo reclines on the beach

My family became pit bull aficionados by mistake. We really didn’t know we were picking up at the shelter Cleo, our very first pit. She lived a very long and happy life chasing cats and squirrels in Lake Como.

Asia with Ruby

 

Asia was a rescue too. Her previous family left her at the shelter at the age of two because they were having a baby and they said she was “too much to handle.” Well, if you don’t know how to train a dog even the tiniest chihuahua can become too much.

The newest edition – Bailey

As to the cat side, here in NYC you can say that Bailey aka ‘Queen B’ (not because of Beyonce, but because the little snitch knows she is beautiful), will take possession of my apartment and begin her residency on Feb 14th. She was abandoned by her previous family because they moved to a building that does not allow pets – so sure just get rid of your cat. Because of that she is a tad temperamental and she has to be the only cat in the house. It’s gonna be a slow journey with her but it’s not the first time that the rescue I volunteer has given me divas. I’m sure she will get used to feather boas and sparkly costumes soon!

Ruby and the rest of the LFF team are working hard behind the scenes to make Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties an amazing show to benefit an amazing organization. Pilots to the Rescue is dedicated to making sure animals like Cleo, Asia and Bailey find their very own Ruby. Won’t you join us on February 18 at the Met Room to support them? Details below.

It’s always a pleasure to share the stage with Twinky Boots, one of the super hot performers from NYC’s Bad Apple Boylesque. A self-described “love child of Broadway producer/choreographer Jerry Mitchell and Bad Apple Boylesque co-founders Apollo Dioni and Don Chipotle,” Twinky got his first taste of burlesque as a performer with Broadway Bares, an annual charity event to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Twinky joins us at the Met Room on February 18 for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties, and has promised a performance replete with pilots and puppies.

We’re excited to welcome Unsung Hera back to perform with us on February 18. This sassy songstress charmed audiences in our Halloween and holiday shows and now her awesome voice and luminous presence will grace the stage at the Met Room for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties.

Unsung Hera

Unsung Hera writes:

Attached is a pic of my two childhood dogs with me, both rescues.

A little about them: Princess was on her last day at the pound when she became my family’s favorite member when I was five. In eighth grade, Zoey came for a trial stay. My loyalties were with Princess, so I protested. But by the end of the weekend, there was no way Zoey was going back. She would never be thrown against a wall after a bad day at work again.
Princess was the sweetest soul who ever lived. She wagged her whole body when she was happy. Zoey knew that every person she met loved her, and would climb onto anybody’s lap to be pet. She also knew that people loved her even MORE in clothes, so she LOVED wearing her little pink dress.

Come see this dog-lover and the rest of the sexy lineup on Saturday, February 18 at the Metropolitan Room.
