The ’60s: To Hellz and Back

 The ’60s were explosive, uprooting everything from music to art to fashion to politics and taking us from the staid ’50s to the “anything goes” ’70s. Hellz Kitten is obsessed with the ’60s, so who better to represent this debaucherous decade?

 1. What is your favorite thing about the ’60s?
I love everything about the ’60s, from the clothes to the music. I like how the decade started out buttoned up and conservative, but by the end, all bets were off and YOLO was the name of the game. I mean it probably wasn’t good for society, but it looks like a lot of fun.
 
2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Well, Don Draper, obviously, since I’m obsessed with Mad Men and because despite all his faults, he’s a gentleman who knows how to treat a lady (at least in the moment).
Cheers
 But I’d also like to get into Jim Morrison’s leather pants.

Or maybe a young(ish) Marlon Brando (although he’d probably bore you death with his causes all night).

I’d love to see Janis Joplin live.

Badass

And maybe someone who could teach me how to do a cat-eye properly.

3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the ’60s?
I’m hopeless about today’s pop culture, unless Wendy Williams is talking about on Hot Topics. But there are a lot of songs on my “Hipster Cocktail Party” Pandora station that sound kinda neo-groovy, so I’ll go with that.
Come get groovy with Hellz Kitten on April 22 at The Triad.

The ’50s was a transformational decade, taking us from war and depression to a more fun, forward-looking youth culture that would dominate the second half of the 20th century. Nothing illustrates that more than the rise of rock and roll. And who better to shake, rattle and roll for you than Shimmy LeCoeur?

1. What is your favorite thing about the ’50s? 

My favorite thing is how the music changed and transformed a generation to rock’n’roll lovers. It was an awakening of the senses and showed just how music could change the world.

2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?

I’d love to have dinner with Elvis Presley and have him sing for me. Wouldn’t it be amazing g to really see how he feels about changing music and becoming the real king of rock’n’roll?

It would indeed!

Come see Shimmy up close and personal on April 22 for Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque. Tickets are ON SALE for this fantastic journey to the ’50s and beyond, so buy yours today!

How long have you been burlesquing?
Six wonderful, crazy years, as of October 15th.

What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
A dirty old man at a gay bar asked if I wanted to take my clothes off for money. I said yes.

A few things keep drawing me to burlesque. One is that it’s wonderful and a joy to create new ideas and stories and concepts and bring them to life. Two is I get to perform with some of my best friends who are family. I also enjoy love and support for the audience.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
Craft new ideas and projects.

Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
Treat. I like my treats and they come in many forms.

Treat yourself to Chardonnay LaTease and the rest of our tricky lineup at The Triad on October 29. Tickets.
