Thursday To-Do: Pretty Things Peep Show

THE PRETTY THINGS PEEP SHOW
8 p.m., Revolution. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

Little Rock's been treated to a fair amount of burlesque in recent years, but never as traditional and agenda-less as “The Pretty Things Peep Show.” Like traveling vaudeville shows of yore (or at least the days of yore as glimpsed in “Playboy” cartoons), “Pretty Things” has a fire-breather, a sword swallower, a contortionist, a fast-talking MC and a host of betassled, nearly naked ladies. But you know, with more boas and bustiers than spandex and G-strings, dancing to rockabilly, not rap. (In fact, the above promo video for the show features co-founder Bettina May losing her evening gown to “Red Headed Woman” by Sonny Burgess of Newport.) Pin-up devotees can audition online to be a “stage maid” for the peep show online. All it takes is a stage name, a photo and a pitch. Male or female welcome.

ALSO: Go Fast is playing a short rockabilly set.
