Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

Billed as a kamikaze cabaret diva, Meow Meow is glamour incarnate—the Australian chanteuse is covered in sequins and fake eyelashes and charisma and heartbreak. She’s also a damned funny broad. Her pal Thomas Lauderdale (of Pink Martini) and the Oregon Symphony will provide the accompaniment as Meow Meow sings beautiful torch songs with an ever-present cigarette (or two) in hand. This gal’s a cheeky sex bomb, but with her clarion voice and lovely range, she’s just as likely to make your eyes cry martini tears. The cabaret star is not unlike a (slightly) less tragic Isabella Rossellini from Blue Velvet, only with more stage lolling and crowd-surfing in a cocktail dress. So, pretty much utterly delightful.
