The tattooed and pierced beauties known as the SuicideGirls will bring their Blackheart Burlesque Tour to the Summit Music Hall tonight, and Missy Suicide, tour organizer and the group's co-founder, promises that audience members are in for a show they can’t see anywhere else. The SuicideGirls will use striptease, music, erotic comedy and choreography from the world-renowned Manwe Sauls-Addison to pay “provocative tribute” to such pop-culture favorites as Donnie Darko, Game of Thrones and Star Wars.

“My personal favorite right now is the Adventure Time act,” Suicide says. “We’ve upped the costumes and the choreography this time, and the girls are loving it.”

The troupe chose Denver as the first stop on the tour because the girls so enjoyed the Mile High City during their 2013 Blackheart Burlesque Tour and at the 2014 Cannabis Cup, Suicide adds.

This year's tour kicks off at 8 p.m. at the Summit, 1902 Blake Street; purchase tickets, $20 for general admission or $75 for VIP (which includes a meet-and-greet with the girls, early merchandise access, photo ops and a collectible tour laminate), at summitmusichall.com. — Lauren Archuletta

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
