That project is what you’ll see at tonight’s opening of Technicolor Tease, a brand-new weekly show launching at Bar Standard. Basically, Vette has taken the naughty vintage songs about sex and drugs that we all love so much and added more naked women, a cocktail hour and a live band to create a speakeasy-era extravaganza. “This will be bigger and more glamorous than anything I’ve done before,” she says. “I was assembling shows piecemeal, as I could, and this is the culmination of my life’s work. I want to redefine what I do and make it as artistic and classy and classic and bawdy as possible.”
Doors open at 8 p.m. for a cocktail hour with drink specials (and mingling with the lovely ladies of the stage), and the show starts at 8:45. Tickets are $15, or $30 for VIP seating. Bar Standard is at 1037 Broadway; visit www.coravette.com for details.
Thursdays, 8:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 27. Continues through Feb. 15, 2012
