Swinging Forties 

The Puppini Sisters at Bimbo's.

The Puppini Sisters are the brainchild of London-based, Bologna-born fashionista Marcella Puppini, who fell in love with the big-band close-harmony singing and the clothing of the '30s and '40s while watching the French animated film The Triplets of Belleville. Enlisting like-minded pals Stephanie O'Brien and Kate Mullins, and naming her group in honor of the Andrews Sisters, Puppini began her crusade to bring back the music, style, and red lipstick of the big-band era. Their repertoire includes the expected classics as well as new wave and postpunk tunes, dressed up in snappy retro style. Sunday, August 19 at Bimbo's in SF. 8 p.m., $18 advance, $20 door. 415-474-0365 or Bimbos365Club.com
