The Tuesday Tease: Horrible and Hot – Halloween Burlesque!

vintage-halloweenWe’ve been talking about it all month, but Halloween is almost here! As I mentioned before, this time of year, Halloween events flood our website and the burlesque events that roll through are always the most interesting.

I’ve been making an effort to feature as many as I can over the past month, so you probably saw my picks for the first half of October’s events already. Today, I will feature the other half of October’s shows so that you can hurry up and get tickets to these shows before they’re gone for good.

Check these out:

Tuesday Tease: Portland’s Frim Fram Foxies!

Get ready Portland burlesque fans, there’s some new, sexy sheriffs in town!

The Frim Fram Foxies have only been together a little over a year but they’re already making waves in the PDX burlesque scene with cleverly themed shows like “suicide burlesque” where the audience picks a song for a Foxie to dance to without cluing her in as to what it is beforehand. Basically a sexier version of suicide karaoke. And on Friday, August 10 they’ll be bringing their 90s themed show, “In Living Colour Burlesque” to the Funhouse Lounge. Pick up your tickets before they’re gone.

While the troupe is relatively new, they are far from being newcomers to the burlesque scene. Tana the Tatooed Lady of Seattle’s legendary Atomic Bombshells and Holly Dai, founder of the Rose City School of Burlesque have been performing on Pacific Northwest stages for years now. That said, they claim to be Portland’s first proper burlesque troupe, with previous organizations, like Rose City Shimmy being more collectives than troupes. We’re incredibly honored that they’ve chosen Brown Paper Tickets to ticket their one-of-a-kind shows and we can’t wait to watch these girls rise to prominence in the Rose City and beyond. With their beauty, talent, pedigree and compelling, original ideas, I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more from the Foxies.

We sat down and chatted with Holly Dai to discuss how the troupe got together, their influences and a little about the Portland scene. Holly even offered up some great advice for troupes that are just getting started.
