Lily Tomlin popped up on random strips of celluloid this year—from Brooklyn indie film Blue in the Face to TV’s Murphy Brown. You may have spotted her dancing in Central Park with Betty in the title-track video for the group’s latest CD, Limboland. Once-local harmonic girl-trio Betty is now making the scene in Greenwich Village, inspiring fierce jealousy in any girl—not just Tomlin—who wants to be bad-ass and beautiful. Substitute the fierce vengefulness of girls who blossomed post-18 for the spitfire nerd comforts of the Roches, and Betty makes all the boys admit she’s the hottie now. Envy her up close with Peyote Circus at 10:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1830 14th St. NW. $10. (202) 667-7960. (Ginger Eckert)
