Now that the under-21 crowd has been sent to its room and banished from Clematis by the crotchety crone running the city, it's time for some smut. Atlanta's Lust brings its, uh, "adult-themed" rawk to the dirty South. Singer and guitarist Susanne Gibboney, bassist Barb G., and drummer Mark Stopper mix Cabaret-style theatrics with pop-punk tunes about amorous feelings for blow-up dolls, outer space, and the limbo. "We try to be the most to everyone," Gibboney says. "We usually end up not pleasing anyone, but we try to mix comedy, choreography, set design, costumes, and music with varying success." Imagine two girls playing trashy rock in stilettos with Gypsy Rose Lee and David Lee Roth as the stage moms and you've got Lust. While the feat of playing in heels is an art captured by few and mastered by Prince, Gibboney says her most ridiculous shoe experience was "playing in eight-inch platform, furry boots for our Viking Metal show." Lust has also been known to hold French bikini and French kissing contests in the same show. But seriously, folks, catch Lust with the Remnants and the Heatseekers at 8 p.m. Friday, May 7, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-9999. -- Terra Sullivan
