Welcome to the Cabaret!

The Tiger LilliesDo come in, won’t you? Now, someone will be along to keep you company at your table and join you in a glass of champagne or two — and I’m sure if you’re nice to them, they will be very nice to you. What’s that, you say? Cabaret music dead? Killed by sanitized lounge singers? Why, I’m sure I’ve never heard such nonsense! If anything, cabaret music has picked up a trick or two from punk and ska along the way — just sit back and listen:
