State of Undress: This Weekend in New Orleans Burlesque and Cabaret


by Jessa Bingham

Looking to be tempted and teased by the titillating dancers of New Orleans? Or enjoy a classic cabaret act with comedians that are sure to bring on hearty laughs? Come inside the venues to cool off from the August weather, and get re-heated the right way with peeks at the city's sexiest movers and shakers. Here's a look at what's going on in the burlesque and cabaret scene this weekend in the Big Easy.


The Burly Beat Guide to JazzFest Burlesque


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.


Teasy Peasy


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.
