State of Undress: Valentine's Edition


Hey there kittens! Congratulations on surviving Mardis Gras! Did you miss me? WE HAVE SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT! 

This Carnival season debuted a brand new troupe, The Foxglove Revue,  from Bella Blue. Blue reigned as Unicorn Queen in the Mystic Krewe of PUEWC, and was also voted the number 8 performer in the world by "21st Century Burlesque". Our very own Charlotte Truese also emerged onto the list at  number 46.


State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings, 6.04-6.05


By Angie Z.

Hello there, kittens! I'm writing to you longingly from the dry heat of the Nevada desert. The Burlesque Hall of Fame weekend is about to kickoff, and show people from across the globe are making their annual pilgramage to Las Vegas' ill informed tribute hotel to the Big Easy, The Orleans. But, do not fret, darling pets! Many of the Crescent City's own world class performers have stayed home and are eager to entertain.


Today in NOLA 4.16.15


Tonight offers a double bill of art in the CBD, an alt country heart-throb at One Eyed Jack’s, and lots of bounce at Republic. On St. Claude, Ginger Licous is bringing her edgy burlesque to the Hi Ho. Today, April 16, is the date New Orleans was officially founded in 1718. Now, more to do a few hundred years later.


Mr. Cheeze Goes Missing


By Angie Z.

Update: A little after 2:00p.m. Ratty Scruvics said that Mr. Cheeze is back, posting to Facebook, "It is with great joy that I tell you The Famous Mr. Cheeze has been found!"

A beloved fixture of the burlesque and sideshow scene has gone missing. Mr. Cheeze, a downtown show dog who performed across the region alongside owners Ooops the Clown and Ratty Scurvics, has not been seen since Thursday (3.12) afternoon.
