The Lampshades are a fake lounge act starring iO alums Kate Flannery and Scot Robinson. They play the first Saturday of every month, but they used to play almost every Saturday night in Hollywood for over 5 years, sometimes to rooms barely half-full (like the real off-the-strip lounge act they pay tribute to). Now that “Kassie,” a.k.a. Kate Flannery, is a regular on The Office (Meredith, the drunk), tickets might be tougher to get (you can order them by clicking on an upcoming show below). Along with “Hori” (Scot Robinson), the two Lampshades work the scotch-soaked, mascara-running piano medley to fine, sleazy effect. No matter how many bands you’ve seen, you have never heard “Mandy” meets “Brandy” with The Andy Griffith Show theme song and “Candy Man” thrown in for bad measure.
“The Lampshades are the best fake lounge act of our time. Though not a couple, they work out the kinks of their amusingly tortured relationship on stage. They can be seen around town in the Rudy Casoni Show and as the occasional opener for the Dan Band but the first Saturday of the month show at IO west is by far their finest hour. Caution:. May contain polyester.” –LA Weekly
