Josie and the Pussycats come to the Emerald

Kidding. It's Jacqui & Le Dropouts, or, as we like to call it, "Kate Bradshaw and the World's Most Dangerous Band."

Kate Bradshaw needs go go boots. We decided this Friday in the office. Not just any go go boots, though: Kate should have go go boots with fish in the heels.

That has nothing to do with anything, except Kate has facets. And layers. Like an onion. Or an ogre. Whatever. And if you peel back her hard crunchy journalistic shell, you'll find she has a soft string-y center. And that soft string-y center girl? Yeah, that girl needs go go boots for when plays.

That's right, Kate Bradshaw's in a band: Jacqui & Le Dropouts. Or, as I like to call them (because I can't remember anything), Josie and the Pussycats. Sorry if I misled you with that headline, by the way.

Anyway, Kate & Co will play at the Emerald Saturday night. No word on whether or not they'll have go go boots (fingers crossed) but, as we understand it, they will have capes. With glitter.

Because Kate Bradshaw may just be Batman. Only, you know, with style.

Show starts at 10 p.m.; $3 cover. Bring your own go go boots. If you can't find the Emerald, follow the smoke.
