I'm going to this tonight: http://www.lacliquelondon.com/
I hope it is just Dita Von Teese doing party tricks
It was a girl I knew performing. There was another girl who could do amazing things with loads of hula hoops.
there was a surprise burlesque show as well, but that made me a bit uncomfortable if I'm honest.
i went to one at bestival. it was pretty fun
also we were sat at the side of the stage so WE SAW EVERYTHING. :D
i've been to la clique.
there's no burlesque in it.
it's good though.
but no real burlesque. it's more akin to an old skool sideshow kind of thing. muscle men, 'magic', bendy men and so on. the first half is good, the second half lacks. the smell of popcorn is nearly overpowering.
I'm getting in for free anyway, so I'm not massively fussed
it's enjoyable, not amazing, i was glad that i didn't pay. oh if you're downstairs don't sit near the stage (it's in the round) if you don't want to get wet or have a dirty hanky waved in your face. or don't like pseudo-audience participation.
The mind literally boggles. LITERALLY.
Do you reckon in 100 years time there’ll be some retro reappraisal of stripping as it is today? Girls going out to vintage shops to find clear plastic heels, and trying to intellectualise the fact that they’re rubbing their labias up and down poles and lapdancing their chufff up in someone’s face?
I imagine going to see this sort of thing will be what finally kills me
It's on its way anyway with all those pole dancing fitness classes and whatnot.
i have limitless experience in this field.
expect there to be a load of arsey cunts there who are more interested in how they look than having a good time.
it was good. Classy stripping. Nipple Tassles. Cool music and outifts. Good vibes. Would recommend to a friend.
it was fucking amazing and the highlight of SxSW.
Great routines, gorgeous girls and all to the music of Tom Waits that was being played live by a band. Fucking incredible! The fact that you could smoke weed was also an added bonus.
Because it is stripping for artsy-fartsy types? Because you're a militant feminist? Or because not nearly enough poon is on show?
I imagine I'll get bored when it finally sinks in that they aren't going to burst into song, a la The Simpsons
yes, i have. i saw Immodesty Blaize and a host of others. I really liked it actually.
to be frank.
This guy came up to me on the street and said “wanna see a ping pong show?” and I replied “no!” with mild-horror. He thought about it a second and then went “how ‘bout a banana show?”
I felt very sad and gave the girl a huge tip.
I had to hold a ballon which she popped by, well, you know.
I can't imagine it wouldn't be horrifically boring...
I went to a thing called Circus of Horrors a while ago that had elements of burlesque. It also had a small man with a hoover glued to his cock, which was a little odd.
there were zombie burlesque dancers.
a very good friend of mine dances pretty regularly. Her schtick is that she's a prudish 50s housewife, wearing hair rollers and stuff, who then goes on to get her boobs out. I find it a little boring, but it seems to get her out of the house.
love it. LOVE IT!
