At Last, Low Brow Art to Scare Away those Winter Blues!

The Dead Dolls Cabaret is pleased to present:

The Swamp Pussy Revival Cabaret!!!

i.e., The Dead Doll Dancers tear a strip off Old Man Winter with a Mardi Gras Cabaret!!!

Montréal’s favourite dancing zombshell burlesque ghouls are wriggling from the seamy frozen underbelly of the city with their 2nd annual February cabaret.

This year’s event is tastefully entitled “The Swamp Pussy Revival” and pays homage to the heyday of Mardi Gras. Be sure to catch this one - when it comes to delectably filthy bump-‘n-grind, raucous dancing and unwilling audience participation, no one does it better than the strangely compelling Dead Doll Dancers!

The Dolls have smeared their particular brand of sleaze from the dirtiest dives to Canada Council-sponsored venues. Now, they return to their customary stomping ground in the heart of the red-light district, Café Cleopatra, which they are attempting to have declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With a ravenous following ranging from brand-spanking-new lesbians to professional gentlemen old enough to know better, this event is sure to be as popular as November 2008’s “Haunted Ho-Down”, which featured two Dolls wrestling in a kiddie pool full of vanilla pudding.
How will they top that? You’ll have to be there on February 21st to find out …

With their torn fishnets, gaudy second-hand duds, rampant body scarring and pallid faces, is it any surprise that a whole chapter was written about them in Bill Brownsteins' recently published book "Montreal 24- Twenty -four hours in the Life of a City" ?
