Aidin Vaziri | Scissor Sisters returned earlier this year with their third studio album, “Night Work,” a full-tilt dance party wrapped up in a nice little package with a butt on the cover. Now the New York disco-pop outfit is out on the road performing it every night, which Ana Matronic, the group’s resident female, tells us is much harder than anticipated. The 35-year-old singer, who got her start at San Francisco’s very own Trannyshack parties, called us after the band’s first tour date in Atlanta.

Q: There are no ballads on the new record. Do you guys just come onstage and go nuts?
A: TIt’s hard core. We were joking that we were going to have Richard Simmons come out for one of the shows and lead everyone in a workout.
Q: Watching some of your moves, it already feels like you guys have studied every Jane Fonda workout video from the ’80s.
A: TJake (Shears) loves Jane Fonda’s workout tapes. He’s a big aerobics fan in general. There’s nothing he loves more than a woman with a giant frizzy perm and French-cut leotard with leg warmers. If I came out onstage wearing that, he would cry. I’m not kidding.
