Jazz, Burlesque, and Voodoo Bill
First up- have you heard about Vancouver’s hottest burlesque event of the whole YEAR?
It’s time for the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival!
Running May 3rd through the 6th, it is packed with glamour, innovation, incredible performers and a whooooole lot of wicked striptease!
Thursday, May 3rd, is held at East Vancouver’s Favourite Cinema, The Rio Theatre- and it’s devoted to live music and burlesque!
Pandora and The Locksmiths will be showcasing “The Night Owl Revue”- our funk and soul spectacular. Big props, big hair, big grooves, big vocal numbers (Nicky here. So many harmonies. So many singers… I AM STOKED!!!) and a huge cast- 17 people! Following P&L is the acclaimed Beatles Burlesque, and Bender in Bermuda!
Friday, May 4th, is held at The Vogue (shazam!) Theatre on Granville Street. An absolutely fabulous lineup- including the incredibly naughty Voracious V, as well as a Radiohead/Sally Rand inspired duo by yours truly and Sean Brother Keys Bayntun! Hosted by one of our favourite people, the faaaaaahbulous Crystal Precious! FIERCE!
Saturday, May 5th, is also held at The Vogue (take that, mainstream entertainment!) Theatre on Granville Street. Also an absolutely insanely talented lineup- including our friends from The Cabaret Du Passe, and of course the inimitable Burgundy Brixx! We cannot WAIT to see her act on the big stage OH MY GOD. Did we mention that Saturday is hosted by The Purrfessor?!
Get your tickets. This is THE burlesque event to be at in Vancouver. There are amazing acts, amazing vendors, amazing amazing amazingness… !!!! See you at the festival! Or, you’ll be seeing us. A lot of us. WINK!
Here’s a teaser video….
Okay! To all those who came to our show at Guilt & Co last week, thank you so much! Your continued support tickles us in all the right place. We hope you know it! Our next show falls right after the burlesque fest on May 8th!
We had a guest photographer in the house capturing the finer moments of the evening, and, accordingly, the rest of this post is devoted to his eye popping eye candy. Big thanks to Voodoo Bill for bringing his talents out! He is a fabulous photographer and a gem to work with!
And so it begins..
