If Liza Minnelli and Lady Gaga got drunk on opera and had a musical baby who was adopted by the cast of SNL, their lovechild would be Meow Meow. Velvety vocals? Check. Provocative persona? Check. Wicked wit? Triple-check. This classically trained rebel can sing circles around a century-spanning repertoire from Piazzolla tangos to Bowie. Between her glorious music, off-beat jokes and polished character, attending this kamikaze cabaret "is like taking part in a high-wire act in which the performer has invited you up onto the wire with her" (The Boston Globe). So take a break from your same ol' sanity and get lost in Meow Meow's sublimely subversive performance with Pink Martini founder and pianist Thomas Lauderdale at Crest Theatre in Sacramento.
