Here's a look at what's going on in the burlesque and cabaret scene this weekend in the Big Easy.

by Moxie Sazerac

While it’s true that burlesque and live music go together like sunburn and mango freezes, there are just a few select offerings for this year’s festers. This Saturday April 28 brings the return of Mistress Kali’s Freaksheaux to Geaux to the All Ways Lounge and Marigny Theatre. The circus flavored show, originally conceived as a one off fundraiser now cultivates the best in traveling and local sideshow and burlesque.

Ever gazed on a burlesque dancer and used your brain (rather than, well, other stuff) to think "Where did she learn how to do that?" Well, tomorrow striptease sensation Michelle L’Amour is hosting a workshop to teach tease techniques. We at NoDef are here to answer your pressing questions about the workshop. We can now say with certainty that feather boas will be included.
