January 18th, 2015//Miss Kitty Baby

Join us on January 18th, 2015 at Julia’s on Broadway to sketch Miss Kitty Baby!

Miss Kitty Baby is The Forever Girl. With her pin-up good looks and killer curves, Miss Kitty Baby brings ruthless sexuality to the burlesque stage, wrapped up in mid-century glamour. Timeless and elegant, Kitty Baby transports you back to the Golden Age of burlesque and infuses it with the raw sensuousness of the modern era. Her acts pair the sweet with the down-and-dirty as smoothly as she combines the vintage with the contemporary.

When she’s not owning the stage, Miss Kitty Baby volunteers her time to support the burlesque community and world at large. She is the producer of the Seattle Burlesque Games and several Burlesque Hall of Fame Legends Challenges, which raise money to help burlesque legends participate in the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender each year. Kitty has also volunteered on production teams for BHoF and BurlyCon, and is the founder of The Pinup Angels.


Tickets sold in advance at Brown Paper Tickets as well as at the door, but we encourage getting tickets in advance to ensure you get a spot.

Doors are at 5:30pm and event starts at 6:00pm.

There is happy hour pricing on food and drinks during the event!

Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art school is the world’s premier alt.drawing movement. Artists draw glamorous underground performers in an atmosphere of boozy conviviality. Found in 2005 in a dive bar in Brooklyn, Dr. Sketchy’s has now spread to over 100 cities around the world. Seattle has been a Charter since 2007.
JLD_6995Scarlett O’Hairdye is Seattle’s Superhero of Sparkle! Recently performing in the New York Nerdlesque Festival, Scarlett comes from a background of anime convention cosplay and musical theater. She sold her personal dignity for a bag of magic beans when she was a child and never looked back. Her costumes? Lavishly accurate. Her ideas? Nearly infinite. Her cheese biscuits? Famous in the Seattle burlesque scene. Her hair? Really, really, ridiculously red. She creates fanfiction on stage with nearly every act… And she can probably kill you with her brain.
