Miss Firecracker plays the Beachland Friday. Today, she tells you why you need to spend some time with her One-Woman Band this weekend. Hint: It has something to do with Vodka Gimlets. And the kazoo. Read on to get the lowdown.-- DX FerrisBand: Miss Firecracker, One-Woman Band, also known for her work in alt-burlesque troupe the Pussyfoot Girls.
Sounds like: “If Minnie Pearl and Mrs. Robinson got together one day, knocked back a few too many Vodka Gimlets, and out of the alcohol-tinged haze popped a love child, and, well, right away that love child needed her mouth washed out with soap, but the problem is, she loves the taste of Lifebuoy... that's Miss Firecracker.”
For fans of: “Rockabilly, country music, and bawdy, toe-tapping fun.”
Fun fact: “The night is going to be recorded by Audio Spectrum for possible future CD release. So your audience participation could go down in infamy!”
Playing Where/When: 8 p.m. Friday, February 22 at the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-383-1124), with the Silvertones (Rockabilly from Canada) and the Amazing Charlie Baker Boys (Country rock from Painesville).
Why you need to see them: “You’ll get to sing along with words that would ordinarily get you in trouble. And you’ll probably get a kazoo!” -- Miss Firecracker - drums, guitar, tambourine, kazoo, and lots and lots of singing.
