Whats a cabaret show without Greek mythology and stop-motion animated monsters? Nothing, if you ask the people behind the Cats Pajamas. This months show is Clash of the Titans. It will include the things one might expect in a cabaret show music, comedy, a hypnotism act. But it also will include a screening of the 1981 film classic of the same name. Among the real time acts are the appropriately named Titan Ups, a reggae band that promoters say could make Mount Olympus shake with their sound. Comic and journalist Harmon Leon is said to have hair that would make even Medusa jealous. (And I wonder whether its a coincidence that Leons publisher is Promethus Books? Liver, anyone?) The Hypno Trio Cabaret Act involves an ill-meaning duo trying to take advantage of a young woman, but apparently they get their comeuppance. San Francisco favorite Chicken John will also be on hand.
