Save Our Sea! features burlesque to benefit the Gulf
Coco Lectric by James Cano
Unfortunately, there's still a lot of clean up to do in the Gulf of Mexico since the oil spill, and the wetlands at the mouth of the Mississippi need all the help we can give them. Lili's Burlesque Revue is making it oh so easy to help our neighbors to the south by hosting an evening featuring entertainment and a silent auction to help raise funds for the wildlife and habitats affected.
Artists from near and far will be a part of the evening's full stage show at the historic Music Box Theatre in downtown Minneapolis. In addition to the luscious stylings of Lili's Burlesque Revue, Headmistress of the Austin Academy of Burlesque and New Orleans' 2010 Queen of Burlesque, Coco Lectric will perform. The Stagedoor Johnnies, an all-male burlesque troupe from Chicago will also be there too, along with local accordion player Dan "Daddy Squeeze" Newton of the Daddy Squeeze Trio.
Save Our Sea! is this Saturday, October 16. Doors are at 8 p.m., with performances beginning at 9 p.m. Tickets are available online for $18 to $20; VIP tickets are available for $40.
