It’s more than a little surprising that there hasn’t been a 4/20-related smoking-implement hackathon in Colorado before now. For her part, the burlesque artist known as Spy Kitten, who helps coordinate the themed Lusty Kitten events alongside Mae Lust, thinks it's a match made in heaven. “We find themes with a cult following, whether it’s Joss Whedon or Adult Swim,” she says, “and we decided to go for it.”
But because they didn’t want to spend all weekend hacking bongs, the event is structured more like an Iron Chef competition -- and because it wouldn’t be a Lusty Kitten show without something extra to lust after, a burlesque component will be included, too. “This is fans doing a show for fans, by fans, and it’s a space for everyone to come and feel good about the holiday without it being a crazy competition,” declares Spy Kitten.
Head to Hack-A-Bong at LaMark15, 1322 15th Street, at 2 p.m. today for the bong-hacking portion of the program; the burlesque begins at 8 p.m. Partake of both events for $30 in advance or $35 at the door; tickets for the burlesque show only are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, with a VIP option available for an additional $5.
