Hot! Hot! HOT!

Formerly a featured performer in Black Cherry Burlesque, Lola Torch has um, lit out on her own and, um, bumped things up a notch. Her new project, the Tucson Libertine League, promises, “Like the libertines of old, our shows celebrate freedom from limitations and restraint, honoring sensuality.”

The League debuts with a Burlesque Battle of the Bands at 8 p.m., Saturday, July 29, at 191 Toole. Local favorites Sugar Stains and Tom Walbank perform live music for Lola and five other Tucson burlesque artists.

Angels of WTF?

Surely you saw the recent viral YouTube of the 80s’ omnipresent pop idol Corey Feldman. He mimics Michael Jackson’s dance moves while approximating music with women (dressed as sexy angels) he says he picked up at the Playboy mansion. If you didn’t scratch your eyes out, you might want to take in Corey’s Heavenly Tour: Angelic 2 the U.S. at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 1 at the Rialto Theatre; $23 to $100. Local bad-taste-makers B4 Skin open.

According to Feldman, he’s helping unfortunate women who aspired in vain to a future on stage and screen. Voila! He created for them a concept universe: a double album, costumes, music lessons (we’re guessing), a backstory, a tour and merchandising with everything but action figures. The concept? In the epic battle between good and evil, the angels are rescuing Feldman from … irrelevance?

Laugh out Loud (house)!

Tucson comedians Cindell Hanson and Rory Montserrat now partner with The Loudhouse Rock & Roll Bar to present open-mic comedy on Tucson’s north side every Tuesday. “I think we’re enhancing the strong scene that we have here,” Hanson says. “Everyone needs stage time, and Loudhouse is giving us the flexibility and support to provide that.” The Loudhouse is at 915 W Prince Road, loudhousetucson.com. Sign up at 6; go up at 7.

Mark Twain meets Batman


Our personal favorite Batman, Val Kilmer, brings spirited and engaging life to America’s most beloved humorist, Mark Twain, in Cinema Twain. A decade ago, he might have toured the project live, but the actor who has flown a car instead presents a digital version. The result is a 21st- century interactive experience. Kilmer gives us the meta in person – what he learned and how he made friends with this incredible, and uniquely American 19th-Century satirist and wit, Samuel Clemens. The show’s at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 5 at The Rialto Theatre; $36, rialtotheatre.com.
