Foxy Veronica's Peach Pies draws from the style and substance of the old-school striptease shows, then add some thoroughly modern cheese: '50s beach-bunny flicks, swingin' '60s mod movies, '70s sitcoms and '80s music videos, topped off with high kicks and pasties. There's even a heaping of the shock-and-giggle comedy of South Park and Family Guy. Isthmus recently spoke with the group's ringleader, Foxy Veronica about how Peach Pies are made and what goes into producing an over-the-top performance nearly every week.
