Voodoo News: Thunderpussy Reclaims Hard Rock

Hard rock has not always been built for women, but Thunderpussy is changing that. They are giving women a space to reclaim their bodies in a genre that has often excluded and objectified them. Thunderpussy is currently on tour for their debut, self-titled album, and will play Voodoo Sunday at 1 p.m. on the South Course Stage.

Cupid’s Cabaret featured aerialists, singers, burlesque dancers and a contortionist, all of who gracefully dispatched with layers of clothing mid-performance. The music was mostly contemporary, but it did not detract from the nostalgic aura that swathed the experience. Meanwhile, the renovated Orpheum Theatre suffused a formal integrity that the burlesque dancers playfully subverted.
