You might not associate burlesque with the Midwest, but c'mon, we have to get up to something here in the flyover states. Now in its second year, this festival has been expanded to four evenings with over 30 performers from corn-fed, cow-tipping towns like Chicago, St. Louis, and Minnesota, with local members from Lili's Burlesque Troupe and Miss Exotic World 2005 Michelle L'Amour slated to perform. Each evening features a variety of unique performances, including live music, dance, classic strip tease, comedy, drag, and other outbursts to amuse, titillate, and impress you. 18+.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 22. Continues through Jan. 25, 2009
