Elektra Cute made her entree into the Twin Cities burlesque scene in 2010 and quickly ascended from cabaret novice to respected member of the local and national scene. Known for her sleek costuming, daring dance style and intoxicating stage presence, Elektra earns her tagline as 'The Most Shocking Woman in Burlesque' each time she steps on a stage. Her performances range from modern to classic, but the elements always remain high-concept. Big props and costumes, intentional choreography, a dry sense of humor and a heavy dose of sex appeal are her key elements.
On a snowy day in January 2016 in a dark, wet, dingy basement three boys became brothers. Kathy Callahan, Natalie Klemond, and Jaz McGill came together to create to the melodic pop punk trio that they are today. With influences from Hole, Alanis Morissette and Pete Wentz their music revives emo feels, in a post-pop punk world.
