Get Pegged Cabaret feat. Slanty Eyed Mama & Daniel de Jesus
Co-curated and hosted by John Jarboe
Fri, May 12, 2017
Like a poison cookie—tempting and treacherous, pleasing and perilous—Get Pegged Cabaret lures you inside a reimagined La Peg, then jumps you with unrestrained intimacy and performance. Each night features uncensored and stimulating entertainment from the sexy, satirical, daring, delightful, queer, and most dangerous performers from Philadelphia, New York, and beyond.
Meet Slanty Eyed Mama: two good Asian girls gone bad-assed. Virtuostic electric violinist Lyris Hung (who has also played with Jay-Z, Bono, has her own death metal band called “Hung” and tours with The Indigo Girls ) and Comedian/Poet Kate Rigg. Their collaboration started as students at NYC’s Juilliard school where they experimented with mashing up rock n’ roll, political comedy and spoken word. Invited twice to the Smithsonian, featured on PBS, LOGO, Pacific TV, and headlining major music and comedy festivals they are a dynamic force to be reckoned with!
“Stunning … dense, multi-layered, surreal imagery interlocks perfectly with ferociously distorted, nasty, searing violin work, a killer combination of words, music and noise”. –Anchorage Daily News
“Wild” – Northwest Asian Weekly
“Smart Edgy Fearless” –Washington Post
