Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday, February 18 for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties! We had a great debut at the Metropolitan Room and raised over $300 for Pilots to the Rescue! (Exact amount to be posted soon.) In case you missed it, here are some photos.
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!
Okay, we’re not heading for the Great White Way just yet, but we WERE listed on Broadway World’s website. That’s pretty exciting, no?
This will be a fun night, because not only will you get to see the sexy and sassy burlesque and boylesque you’re used to, but we will also have singers, glass eaters and a sword swallower (not a euphemism!). It’s going to be the best night ever!
So hurry and buy tickets now because space is limited.
Yay! We can’t wait to see you on the 18th!

Bummer, it’s Monday. But don’t worry, the weekend will be here before you know it. And with it, the weekend brings Les Femmes Fatales’ sultry summer show Sirens of the Solstice. Hellz Kitten sat down for a Q&A with host Tina Tassels before the show. Let’s meet Tina.
How long have you been burlesquing?
I began with the New York School of Burlesque’s Student Showcase in December 2010.
What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
Number one, is that it’s hopefully entertaining, and number two, it helps maintain my self-confidence, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I work at a talent agency, specifically for the music touring department.
What is the sexiest thing about summer?
My favorite part has to be everyone (well most people, ha!) being in a better mood because of the weather. Everyone seems to be happier day in and out.
See you soon!
