A Diva Stuck in an Indie World: Kat Solar at Le Poisson Rouge

Kat Solar is an up and coming pop singer from the bright city of Detroit who's a little bit of the last four decades -- the showiness of 80s hair metal, the diva attitude of 90s female pop, and the courageous weirdness of many acts from the 2000s. She's basically the "Dirrty" Christina Aguilera with a little more Celine Dion and no assless chaps. So when I showed up to Solar's show at Le Poisson Rouge -- a cabaret-style club that Solar might as well have been born in -- I was already expecting a show. And I got more than that.

It's no surprise that Kat Solar grew up in performing arts, because if nothing else she is a performer. Flanked by two female and male dancers each, Solar ran through her debut album Snake Eyes, suggestively shimmying around the small stage, beckoning the audience to come closer. The forty-minute set consisted of multiple costume changes, an electric hula hoop demonstration, and a song called "Money Shot." It was pretty much like a bachelorette party, the way Solar gaited around in boas and spandex. Or maybe it was more like a bachelor party. One thing's for sure -- if you like era-bending and lyrics like "Oh, he's so money/Every drop, a little bit of honey," then you should throw on your best burlesque outfit and get to a Kat Solar show stat.
