I mentioned in an earlier post that October seems to be a big month for burlesque shows. I credit this to there being so many fun themes that you can play with: horror movies, sci fi, fantasy, etc. I was trying desperately to find a “theme” for this blog post but the events this week are so good, I think they’re a theme in themselves. How can you go wrong with Addams Family burlesque, nerdlesque, David Cronenburg burlesque, a Halloween-themed Dr. Sketchy’s, a burlesque festival in Floria and tons of other great events? Really, pretty much all the burlesque events on our site for this week are certain to entertain and titillate.
Enough from me. Check out these great events and get excited. Halloween is just a mere two weeks away!
TONIGHT! Tuesday, October 15
