Good evening my lovelies!
It's September and I'm writing this in a coffee shop after returning from the 70th annual World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago for ChiCon 7. I had a fantastic time and introduced a whole lot of people to the glories of nerdy burlesque or, as we like to call it, nerdlesque. Being home after a long trip alwaays feels so good. Especially after rolling in the rhinestones and glitter. (I'm not sure the cats ever appreciate that.)
First up in this very busy month is Lust.Love.Lifetime: A Show Benefitting Washington United for Marriage at the Rendezvous Jewelbox Theater on the 13th. The show starts at 7:30 pm. The show is $20 and profits go directly to Washington United for Marriage. This show is going to be awesome! This show features the talents of Eva Fairwood, Miz Melancholy, Scandal from Bohemia, Betty Fish, Sara Dipity, myself, and more.
Fantastic burlesque and supportting marriage equality in Washington? Total win!
How do you follow up a show about lust and love? With Debauchery, of course. In its usual third Thursday of the month slot, Lily Divine Productions brings us a night of entertainment tailored for the queer audience at Neighbor's Night Club in Seattle.
Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Advanced tickets are just $10 and $15 at the door.
This month's show features some amazing performers! In no particular order, other than by name, I get to share the stage with Al Lykya, Amarylis Brindamour, Fay Onyx, Gema Lusterious, Harriet Scary, Juicy Fruit, Miss Kitty Baby, Pidgeon Von Tramp, Tiger Bombshell makes a debut peformance, and Zusha Rouge.
Lily Divine Productions uses Debauchery as a means to raise money for local LGBTQI organizations through community grants generated by the shows.
Last, but certainly not least, NERDZ! returns to the Jewelbox again this year for two nights, September 22nd and 23rd! You read that right, you now two oppurtunities to take in some amazing nerdity, that amazing confluence of nerdly pleasures combined with nudity. Sounds simple enough, yes?
The show on Saturday, September 22nd, begins at 7:00pm and doors open at 6:30pm. The doors for Sunday's show open at 6pm with the show starting at 6:30pm.
Leading me in this night of sexy geekry is Scarlett O'Hairdye, Sailor St. Claire, Nathaniel Johnstone, Tempest, Morgue Anne, Bolt Action, Stella Vaughn, Scandal from Bohemia, and Candy Apples.
Those geniuses from Card Kingdom are even putting together a prize package that will be as enviable as it will be epic.
And October 3rd see's my return to Oakland, CA, in iL Nocturnal's iLnoc-off! It's a benefit support of We Are Family, a community organization that helps homeless LGBT youth in need. The Seattle Police Department estimates that there anywhere between 500 and 2000 homeless youth on the streets of Seattle and and that nearly half of those numbers are LGBTQI teens. If you want to help but cannot make the show, watch this site for details on how you can help make a difference.
