Up in Da Club With Alexander Thompson: The Anna Copa Cabanna Show

Alexander Thompson

Sequins! Spandex! Wigs! Australian import Anna Copa Cabanna spotlighted her '70s-style variety show at Joe's Pub the other night. The room was packed with a downtown glam rock crowd supporting Ms. Cabanna's
quirky show. Anna takes her inspiration from bands like ABBA, as well as underground punk bands like Crass. With glittery back up dancers, and loads of costume changes, Anna broke out into funky medleys including Madonna's "Burning Up" and Jimi Hendrix's "Rire." She plays the guitar and sings hilarious ballads she writes like one called "Patrick Swayze," and even plays the xylophone. Anna kept the crowd roaring with laughter with her wit and off the cuff remarks. She closed the show with a sexy finale, singing and dancing to Nick Gilder's "Hot Child In The City." Too much! For $12, this is definitely a bang for your recession buck!
