THINGS TO DO IN OLYMPIA THIS SATURDAY >>>

Righteous and racy?

You might not expect full nudity in a video from The Righteous Mothers, Olympia's funny and politically aware quartet, who also sing about the joys of ice cream and the discomfort of bras and pantyhose.

But the Mothers - who'll perform in Olympia, Saturday, March 19 - went viral a couple of years back with their video for "Old Fat Naked Women for Peace."  It's had more than 750,000 hits.

Don't worry, though. The Mothers - Lisa Brodoff, Wendy Crocker, Marla Beth Elliot and Clare Meeker - don't get naked in the video, which does show shots of naked protesters, but at a tasteful distance.

The song celebrates the 2002 victory of the women of Escravos, Nigeria, over Chevron. The women threatened a naked sit-in if a plant there wouldn't hire locals and provide financial assistance to the local community. They won without resorting to nudity.

The Olympia concert, with Lisa Koch, is a benefit for the Monarch Children's Justice & Advocacy Center. The concert will also feature a sale of handmade jewelry.

[The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, Lisa Koch & the Righteous Mothers, Saturday, March 19, 8 p.m. $25, $20 for students and those with low incomes, 512 Washington St. S.E., Olympia, 360.753.8586]
