Energetic burlesque queen Darlinda Just Darlinda puts a furry spin on baring it all with her “busty bear” act on Sat 26 at QBR Lives’ new homo-punk party at the Cake Shop (152 Ludlow St between Rivington and Stanton Sts, 212-253-00S36). Besides rousing the crowd as host, she’ll strip from a bear suit to a nude-colored G-string and pasties, revealing, no doubt, the divine just under the ursine.—Daniel Derouchie
