The Bats Natasha’s, 112 Esplanade, $8, 9 p.m.From the venue website: “Bringing together the eight diverse talents known as The Bats has netted a genre that can best be described as cabaret meets rock and roll. .. and everything in between. The five feisty women and three very brave men of this distinctive group embrace many musical styles with the material ranging from comical to poignant. They sing of love lost and found, the joys and stings of growing older, and of life’s best and worst moments. Whether covering other artists’ songs or singing their own original tunes, the common denominator is tight vocal harmonies, skillful musicianship, wit and sophistication, energy and creativity … with props and choreography thrown in for good measure. They sing, they dance, they yodel ..and they’re real good looking’.”
