[Nerdlesque] The Strand Attacks!


If you have not heard of the post-apocalyptic awesomeness that is the Strand here in the Valley then we will help you lift that rock you’ve been under!   The Strand cannot be boxed into one unique genre, but is a blend of industrial dance, EBM, electro-industrial, and industrial rock music.  Arizona is lucky enough to host this band and have them back in Phoenix from their tour.

And even MORE lucky, are you gents and dames who will be attending the Burlescapades Nerdlesque show on January 25th at Joe’s Grotto as not only will you be tantalized by the wiles of our burlesque dances, and entertained by the wit of our variety acts, but you get to see the Strand live at the after-party!

Oh, and we have one last little surprise for you Strand fans: not only dangerously attractive, and talented, but also generous – the Strand will be gifting a CD to all guests that attend our little soiree that evening.

On a personal note, I can say that seeing the Strand live is a visual and auditory fun-house ride I would never miss.

If you are a clever devil, you’ll get your tickets now before they disappear so you have a good view for all of the goodies we have in store for you.

Ta for now!

Hubba Hubba!


Firehouse Phoenix


Legs Up Blue

The cat has been out of the bag for a little while now that the extraordinary Kara La Fleur accepted a marvelous opportunity in San Fran. While we miss her terribly here, you lucky Californians now get to see her tease and toy her fabulous feathers and self across the stage!

The first of many shows will be at the ever tantalizing Hubba Hubba Revue on Monday, January 28th at the Uptown Club.  If I were *you* I’d go and see her before we steal her back to Phoenix.  Oh, and need I mention that there will be a bevy of other beauties to enjoy for the evening?

Color me envious.

Love and pinches,

Sable Switch Has Joined BurlEscapades!




BurlEscapades is proud to announce our newest kitten Sable Switch!  She hails from Phoenix Arizona and brings the heat and the spice to prove it.  With her smoldering dark looks, once you start watching her you won’t be able to look away.  You’ll see her joining us on stage this fall.  Congratulations to us all!

August is almost here!

It’s been a fun summer!  Here at BurlEscapades we’ve been busily working on next season’s performances, and we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded to the San Francisco area as well.  You can count on seeing the same great dancers at our shows along with same exciting additions (our little kittens are growing up!) and we’ve been coming up with titillating new dances and costumes.  The next show coming up is August 18, with Romantasy Cabaret at Club Red in Tempe.  Come see us wiggle and tell them Kara sent you! 😉

Preparing for the show with The Greats

Sometimes one has to look at the past for inspiration.  In preparation for tonight’s show, Mercy Beaucoup and I are watching Dean Martin’s Rat Pack Live 1965 Perormance, along with some Robert Goulet for good measure.

We have decided what we really need is to always go onstage with a drink and a cigarette.

Those crooners from back in the day sure could belt them out.  As Dean Martin’s silver notes escape his soft lips, we’re melting like the ice in his scotch. Get ready for us to bring some of that sauce onstage tonight at the Hubba Hubba Revue in The Uptown, Oakland, Ca.

Hubba Hubba, here we come!

Mercy Beaucoup and I are now in California, eagerly anticipating tomorrow night’s performance with The Hubba Hubba Revue at The Uptown Club in Oakland.

This is quite the honor to be included in this show.  In 2010, The Hubba Hubba Revue was named on Travel Channel‘s list of Top 10 Best Burlesque Shows around the world.  Besides that honor, they’re won numerous regional awards and featured some of the country’s most talented burlesquers.

So if you’re in the area come out and see us!  Today we’ll be relaxing in wine country, as must be done on any proper trip to California, but tomorrow we’re going to show The Uptown what we’re made of!  Tell them you met Mercy on the plane ;).
