The TypewriterGirls Try Politics
"After the (amazing) scantily clad, mildly orgiastic debacle that was The TypewriterGirls Try Drag, the ladies have decided to turn over a new leaf and begin an epic battle in the name of social justice. Join them in their quest to unionize the Greater Pittsburgh bohemian community–streetwalkers, poets, bicyclists, tarot card readers, amateur astrologers, and the like–while revolutionizing Pittsburgh’s concept of 'employed.' Supported by the AFL-CIO (in a manner of speaking), The TypewriterGirls have rounded up an all-star team of Grass Roots Community Organizers to aid them in their cause." Feat. poets Renee Alberts, Adam Atkinson, Mary Biddinger, and Jay Robinson, with music by Between Liberties, DJ Randy Spinster, escape artistry by Dave Doyle (aka Pester the Jester), and punk rock burlesque with Shrimp Scanty.
