Miz Melancholy wants you to hear Sherree Chamberlain

February 28, 2014 at 11:23 AMVioletDeVille

CopyrightThe Mistress of Melodrama, Miz Melancholy revels in making people slightly uncomfortable…in a profoundly titillating way. This founding member of the Seattle based burlesque and performance art troupe, the Libertinis, has demonstrated an affinity for the gothic and the macabre through her precision crafted performances. Though some have made the terrible mistake of writing her off as just another pretty face, we urge them to reconsider. Not only is this ecdysiastic wunderkind a gifted performer, she also flexes her intellectual muscles in the area of earth and space sciences with same passion, drive, and intelligence she brings to the stage every time.

CopyrightNext Saturday when she takes the stage at IndieStrip, she’s going to be exploring something a little darker and something deeply personal. The sound track to this comes from the music of Sherree Chamberlain, an Oklahoma City based singer-songwriter and sometimes educator. Between Ms. Chamberlain’s music and Miz Melancholy’s performance style we are certain you will be drawn in and changed by them at IndieStrip on March 8th.

EmpeROAR Fabulous!!! wants to expose you to Purr Gato

February 26, 2014 at 10:55 PMVioletDeVille

CopyrightEmpeROAR Fabulous!!! is a fine example of a renaissance man. Not only is he an award winning boylesque performer with accolades from the Great Boston Burlesque Expo and the Carolina Burlesque Festival, he’s an actor and producer, an emcee and a singer-songwriter. The Exposing Composer is known for his sexual wit, campy humor, and total disregard for the gender binary. Not one to pick a style and stick with it, EmpeROAR Fabulous!!! draws from a music palette of pop rock and jazz to mix his drama and social commentary with pure lust. Even when not performing to his own music, this master craftsman will compose his every move, every glance, and every reveal to create the best exposure possible.

CopyrightAt IndieStrip, the Exposing Composer would like to introduce you to Purr Gato, a Seattle based electronica group. Their sound has been described as “sweet Eighties-influenced” and “carefully sculpted”. You’re going to love the composition of tease EmpeROAR Fabulous!!! is scoring to the dark wave gem that is Purr Gato at IndieStrip on March 8th.

Burlesque Celebrates Independent Music at IndieStrip

February 16, 2014 at 4:11 PMVioletDeVille

Music has always been a driving force in our lives and nowhere is that felt more prominently than in burlesque. Today’s commercial music machine churns out pop hit after pop hit, taking a new and vibrant sound and molding it, crushing it, churning it into the next safe bet. Song writers are subjected to formulaic producers who turn out music that sounds like everything else on the radio dial. Where can a music consumer turn to find something fresh? On the March 8th, talented performers in the Seattle burlesque scene are taking a moment to revel the creativity, the intimacy, and the free spirit that comes from independent music. Let us expose you to new music.

Meet the Cast: Katie Kat of the Belltown Burlesque on 2/8

February 4, 2014 at 9:05 PMVioletDeVille

CopyrightAt least one person has noted that she can be creepy and perhaps kooky. They’ve said she’s mysterious and spooky. Still others have said that maybe she’s all together ooky. You may feel differently about this first mate of the Feisty Felines, the pirate cat girl performance group. Personally, we like to think of her as neat, sweet, and petite. On February 8th, Katie Kat will wear her heart on her black fur coat sleeve—rather than storing it in the glass jar she buries in the cemetery out back—and brings us a shockingly delightful tribute to everyone’s favorite hairless uncle. We’re positive you’ll find the performance downright electrifying when you join us for the Belltown Burlesque Revue at the Re-Bar.

Meet the Cast: Jo “Boobs” Weldon of the Belltown Burlesque on 2/8

February 2, 2014 at 11:11 PMVioletDeVille

Copyright by Allen LeeJo “Boobs” Weldon is not your average burlesque performer. In addition to her ecdysiastic exper-tease, she is the headmistress of the New York School of Burlesque, the author of the Burlesque Handbook, the vice president of the only burlesque educational and social convention BurlyCon, and the Co-Director of Education at the Burlesque Hall of Fame. Or to put it much more simply, she is an amazing icon of the art form we call burlesque. To say that we are happy to have her in the show is an understatement of immense proportions. More accurately, we are delighted. Over the moon, really. In fact we are so excited we can hardly keep our clothes on. Next Saturday we invite you to come see what everyone is talking about at the Belltown Burlesque Revue.

Meet the Cast: Seraphina Fiero of the Belltown Burlesque Revue on 2/8

February 1, 2014 at 10:46 AMVioletDeVille

CopyrightShe is the Tyler Durden of burlesque, a guerilla terrorist on stage and a master of her craft. Seraphina Fiero owns any stage that she is on and revels in pushing boundaries. Now she comes to the Belltown Burlesque Revue next Saturday with her silks to obscure and tease you, to push you, and make you meet your mortality. Stop fearing death, she intones, but accept that one day you will close your eyes and they will not open again. Accept this fact so that you may live and when death comes for you next weekend she will be there and pleasure will follow.
