The alt-burlesque babes of !BadAss!, led by Velocity Chyaldd, head to the Lower East Side to salute the furious femininity on display in the exploitation classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (directed by the inimitable Russ Meyer) and the Kill Bill flicks (from the hand of Quentin Tarantino). The show, hosted by Shelly "The Singing Siren" Watson, boasts an all-star cast that includes Delysia LaChatte, Reverend Mother Flash, Nasty Canasta, Minnie Tonka, Legs Malone, Dangrrr Doll, Perle Noire and Lefty Lucy (among many others), with Amanda Whip serving as stage kitten and Faceboy as stage master. In the immortal words of Stuart Lancaster, "You girls a bunch of nudists or are you just short of clothes?"
