State of Undress: 3.10-3.15


By Angie Z.

Hiya Kittens!

Lot's of exciting things happening! The Blue Book has found some new stages to adorn…..but more about that next week.

 

If you haven't already heard, a brand new festival has been conceived and will be debuting this June. The Snake Oil Festival, the love-child of Ben Wisdom, Little Luna, and Ginger Licious, is accepting applications until midnight, tonight (March 10). According to http://www.snakeoilfestival.com,"The event features the very best in burlesque, side show, music, comedy, circus and other forms of alternative entertainment from the Big Easy and around the world. Whether you are an artist looking for a supportive platform, or a spectator looking for a unique show, we have the perfect remedy. Join us for three days of shows at the legendary Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans. Featuring workshops, classes, and seminars by well respected performers."

 

The festival will run June 19-21 and is headlined by two of my favorite people, New Orleans own Bella Blue, and "The Carny Preacher" himself, Armitage Shanks of Seattle. Applications are open to burlesque, variety, musical, and sideshow performers. 

Get 'em in, kittens. This historical event is not to be missed!

<3, Angie
