Feline-themed electro-pop duo Lion Cut have been known to make some delightfully silly music videos, and the new video for their song "Tiger Bomb" (below) is no different. I mean, seriously, what's more delightfully silly than Russian-style dancers in tiger costumes romping around amid a snowy mountain landscape?
This time, however, the duo known as Zoltron Monsieur and Kittytron is getting catlike for a cause. If you buy the track, the money goes directly to Save Tigers Now, a campaign headed by World Wildlife Fund. As you'll read on the campaign's "Problem" page, the world's tiger population is down to about 3,200 from 100,000 a hundred years ago, and much of the wild tiger's habitat has been destroyed.
Lion Cut will celebrate the release of the video at Tin Can Ale House on Friday, June 1. A DJ duo called Relax Baby Be Cool (composed of music man Rafter Santos-Roberts and his wife, Lizeth) will spin tunes,
and the Culture Shock Dance Troupe will open. Naturally, proceeds from the night will also go toward helping out Lion Cut's tiger friends.
