Touring burlesque, sideshow, and vaudeville troupe The Pretty Things Peep Show is making a Louisville stop on their 2016 Valentine’s Tour. The quartet of performers will stop in the Derby City just a few days before V-day, so it’s an ideal way to spend an evening with someone you love. The performers include “go-go Amy,” the girl with the scarlet tresses and a million dresses; Charlie Atlas, strong man and knife thrower; and Rachel Atlas the Pain Proof Princess, who swallows swords, razor blades, and climbs the Machete Ladder. Rounding out the foursome is Matt Scott, aka Rasputin, and his marionettes. The “prestidigitator of puppetry,” his creations were featured on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It sounds like a sexy and dangerous night.
