Little Miss Nasty Tour Poster
LITTLE MISS NASTY—purveyors of sex, art, and rebellion—have today (October 17) unveiled the video for “Bad Girls Romance” from their upcoming debut album WEAPON OF CHOICE out in January 2024 (exact date TBA). Watch the video HERE and pre-save the darkly alluring, electro-driven single (out this Friday, October 20) HERE. Read a lively Q&A with LMN’s iconoclastic leader, singer, and songwriter GINA KATON below.
Look for LITTLE MISS NASTY on the road this fall starting October 19 in San Diego and hitting 21 cities including Austin, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. The LITTLE MISS NASTY take-no-prisoners live experience is a professionally choreographed production featuring some of the entertainment industry’s best dancers, aerialists, vocalists, and contortionists. The electrifying spectacle is full of over-the-top visuals and blazingly cool music from Korn, Slipknot, NIN, Rob Zombie, Gina and The Eastern Block, RATM, IC3PEAK and others along with surprises that leave jaws on the floor and memories fired up. Audiences at sold-out residences in Las Vegas, LA and NYC have experienced a sensually charged evening that’s “off the leash” with these seductive global icons of dark performance art and rebellious burlesque. As LITTLE MISS NASTY says about audiences at their shows, “You have permission to be your Nasty, authentic self!”
Excitingly, LITTLE MISS NASTY has announced a NYC residency show—debuting January 26, 2024, at the Paradise Club in the Edition Hotel in Times Square—that will run every Friday/Saturday night. Stay tuned for when tickets will go on sale. “Even though we’ve already made a splash in New York earlier this year with a killer residency in Brooklyn at House of Yes,” says Katon, “we are now beyond excited to move the show into New York Fuckin’ City proper! There’s something about the energy being right in the thick of it in Manhattan that is just so epic! Plus we will be able to reach a much bigger and broader audience in Times Square and that will give us the ability to spread the message of LMN much more rapidly than when we were out in Bushwick. And ‘Little Miss Nasty on Broadway’ or maybe ‘Broadway Gets Nasty’ both have nice rings to them!”
Q&A with Gina Katon of LITTLE MISS NASTY
Why did you name the tour after the song “Bad Girls Romance” after the song from your upcoming debut album. What is the song about?
GINA: “Bad Girls Romance” is kind of like the dream state and head space of female desire, sex, and fantasy. It’s a song that women can listen to that embodies their deepest desires—real life or fantasy. It gives women the license to be sexual and proud of their sexuality. Overall, the LMN brand is a bold celebration of women’s sexuality. We are unwaveringly unapologetic about that. We think the name “Bad Girls Romance” is the perfect name for this tour since we are bringing five sexually empowered, talented women across the country and of course it’s also the name of our debut single from the new album.
A residency in NYC in Times Square is a big deal. How amped are you for this?
GINA: THIS IS HUGE! Even though we’ve already made a splash in New York earlier this year with a killer residency in Brooklyn at House of Yes, we are now beyond excited to move the show into New York Fuckin’ City proper! There’s something about the energy being right in the thick of it in Manhattan that is just so epic! Plus we will be able to reach a much bigger and broader audience in Times Square and that will give us the ability to spread the message of LMN much more rapidly than when we were out in Bushwick. Plus “Little Miss Nasty on Broadway” or maybe “Broadway Gets Nasty” both have nice rings to them!
LMN is about sex, art, and rebellion. It’s a bold female empowerment celebration that’s visceral and cerebral. It stands apart from simply being a marriage of burlesque and rock. Can you talk about how LMN has evolved into what it is today?
GINA: Even though we are constantly evolving, SEX, ART, and REBELLION have always been the backbone and driving forces for LMN. It’s true that we an energetic show and experience. We started as just a live show but over time LMN has really turned into a cultural lifestyle brand. A retail clothing line, a music recording artist, a “Las Vegas” production show. Little Miss Nasty is a brand, a lifestyle, a movement. We even have a cartoon! A TV series next?
LMN embraces sexuality and fearlessness, while at the same time it raises consciousness about female empowerment, which is key, especially since the Supreme Court rolled back women’s rights that they were granted 50 years ago.
GINA: I have a pit in my stomach and an aching heart, but my fists are clenched. We will never stop expressing ourselves freely and we hope that by doing so we empower and encourage other women to do the same even if that means standing up to the “powers that be” at the local level or even the fucking Supreme Court. It’s complete BS. I think that the following lyrics from the second single on our upcoming album sum up our thoughts on this pretty well: “It’s a new fucking day, and we don’t fuck with you.” Or another pretty good one is: “My body is powerful, it’s my weapon on choice.”
You vocally dig your heels into your songs. Which artists have inspired you as a vocalist?
GINA: Kurt Cobain, Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill, Pink is a bad ass, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Salt-N-Pepa, Notorious B.I,G., and of course Wendy O. Williams.
If you overheard people talking about the new album, what would you like to hear them say?
GINA: ‘Wow! I did not expect that at all! So unique. Every song has its own vibe. I cried listening to “Buried In Sin” It’s so powerful! I can’t wait to dance to these songs!’
How do you describe the chemistry of the LMN performers?
GINA: Just incredible! The rawness of our live stage show forces us to push through any sort of boundaries that we may have. We’re ALL IN. There’s no holding back. We are not faking anything. What you see is true passion and real heartfelt performances. To “go there” you have to be 100% comfortable with yourself and your fellow LMN babes.
Can you talk about one area of the show that you feel especially stitches together the many themes of LMN?
GINA: Our grand finale in the current show is a raucous, wild, rebellious, “no fucks given whatsoever” performance to “Killing In The Name Of” by Rage Against The Machine.
If you could send a text message to the Supreme Court, what would it say?
GINA: “It’s a new fucking day and we don’t fuck with you. My body is powerful, it’s my weapon on choice. Choke on my dick.”
