That was so cheese but I just had to.
Last night GCB invaded Hamilton yet again for our bi-monthly show at the Casbah Lounge. Unfortunately it was downpouring yet again which likely deterred a good chunk of potential audience. However, those that did make it out were spoiled with a variety of talent. Usually for out of town shows, performers will double up acts so there are less people to transport, but everyone was super generous with the driving and we got a few carloads of pretty ladies, musicians and comics to the venue.
I didn’t get to see all of the acts, as I got caught up backstage (aka I’m lazy and like to sit and chat) but I did get to see Esther De Ville, sultry and tittilating as always. I really like Esther’s character, it reminds me of the 90s cartoon depictions of a sexy woman (like Jessica Rabbit, Cool World). Also saw Chaos Divine’s new act properly (last time I was sidestage, this time from the audience), Fionna Flauntit & Tanya Cheex.
Today I’m off to Queen West to pick up a few things and finish my Riddler costume for “Holy Boobies, Batman!” Very excited for this show, we are doing a full run-through rehearsal which I actually have never done for a burlesque show before. It’ll be cool to be able to preview all the acts. It’s ten bucks in advance at Original on Queen west (near Augusta), more info here. Costumes highly encouraged, although you don’t need to be a full on bat-freak to enjoy some fun. Performers will be pulling inspiration from animated series to Christopher Nolan movies to the way-back TV series so there’s something for everyone (including Dew Lily of Boylesque TO, Red Herring of the Get Luckys, Sevvy Skellington of TKS & Repo Cats as well as many others.
Hooray! Well, I better go do that, while it’s still merely overcast and not raining. Also, I’m sure there’s a latte with my name on it on the way. Mmm!
