DEVIL DOLL
9 p.m., Juanita's. $6.

Call it the best of '40s and '50s nostalgia. Devil Doll blends lounge-style jazz with spirited rockabilly and, well, sex. Though it's technically the name of the full band, Devil Doll is, for all practical purposes, the nom de stage of Colleen Duffy — a voluptuous, raven-haired pin-up who dresses equal parts Dita Von Teese and Jessica Rabbit. With a massive pompadour and blood-red lipstick, Duffy sings sultry, smoky ballads that, at a moment's notice, turn into rave-ups that have an almost punk-rock edge. Self-dubbed the “Queen of Pain,” Duffy says she's “puttin' the sex back in rock 'n' roll.” Even if the sex never left, '50s fetishists are sure to lap up Devil Doll's flirtations with burlesque.
