The Suicide Girls are bringing their popular Blackheart Burlesque to the Theatre of Living Arts. After years of playing international music festivals, solo shows, and opening for Guns N’ Roses and Courtney Love, the girls put on a full-fledged tour in 2013. Selling out dates across the country, the tour was so successful that this spring the girls brought their act to Australia and Canada. Now back in the U.S., they’ll hit up Philly on Sunday, November 9th at 9:30 p.m.
Suicide Girls is an online community featuring pin-up photography and alternative models—think tattoos, funky hair dos, and tons of cheeky attitude. A self-proclaimed “sorority of badass bombshells and geek goddesses,” the community celebrates uniqueness, indie culture, and alternative beauty, opposing society’s cookie-cutter beauty standards.

We’re celebrating our first week of Ticket by giving away — well look at that — tickets to see Karmin at the TLA on Fri., Jan. 31. The pop duo — consisting of peppy vocalist Amy Heidemann and pianist Nick Noonan — is currently on a tour to promote their first full-length album, Pulses, due out on March 25. The group became famous via a string of amazing cover videos on YouTube, where Heidemann flawlessly imitated everyone from Nicki Minaj to Chris Brown to Lady Gaga. In 2011, they signed with Epic Records, and put out their most popular single, “Brokenhearted.” Most recently they’ve released “Acapella” and “I Want it All,” both from the upcoming album.
Not a week goes by that I don’t think about The Big Lebowski and laugh. Not a fan the first time I saw it, the movie’s quirk grew on me during subsequent viewings and now I crack up whenever I think of hefty, blue collar John Goodman scolding Jeff Bridges about bothering him on Shabbos, or the brilliant John Turturro threatening the pair not to “fuck with the Jesus.” Apparently, the film has found more than a few other fans because the hilarious Lebowski Fest concept has been going strong for ten years now (and boasts 48,255 fans on Facebook) and is coming to the Theatre of Living Arts this very eve.
