Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
You be forgiven for thinking that a burlesque show based around the oeuvre of surrealist auteur David Lynch would have, at best, a lifespan of two or three installments—but Francine "The Lucid Dream" and her Pink Room Burlesque proves that the old "it's so crazy, it just might work" saying has a bit of truth to it. The burly-Q revue celebrated its second birthday at the Parkside Lounge on Thursday, February 21, with Amelia Bareparts, Cassandra Rosebeetle, Matt Knife, Minx Arcana, Ruby Valentine and host Bastard Keith joining in on the fun. As you would expect, the performaces were wonderfully weird and—in the case of the Lady in the Radiator act or the Ms. Rosebeetle's skeleton bit—just a little creepy.
