I was fortunate to be welcomed to perform on my short visit to New Mexico this past week by both Burque Burlesque and Burlesque Noir. Friday night I performed my classic rhinestone piece with Burque Burlesque to Ella Fitzgerald’s “Keep My Love Alive” – our 1/2 hour burlesque show opened for some radical rockabilly bands, like Three Bad Jacks. I got to swing dance with a talented boy after and I wonder where the rockabilly scene is in LA. There must be one with all these millions and millions of folk, but I’ve never seen it. I’d like to!
Saturday night Burlesque Noir produced a full 3 hour burlesque extravaganza. There were award-winning group burlesque acts, a magician and special guest dance solos. The Lone Ranger film is shooting in New Mexico right now and I own a company working on it, so I had been hanging out on set saying hi to friends all week and many of the Lone Ranger crew came to see the show, as well as some of the Lone Ranger stars, Tom Wilkinson and Ruth Wilson! But what delighted me the most was getting one of the Lone Ranger crew (and a handsome hunk of a Lover) on stage as the target for my Bullwhip Burlesque.
Here are some photos from my Bullwhip Burlesque with Burlesque Noir Saturday 5/26/12. As always, the pasties pics are not public – you have to come see me live for that! All photography by Dark Flash Photos.
