Photos(NSFW): Les Dames du Burlesque and IC Kings present Bow Chicka Wow Wow

2013 02 13 Bow Chicka Wow Wow-3This is an instance where the photos speak for themselves. I don’t really need to tell you much, and you may not even have read this far before heading right for the slideshow. I will say this:  Les Dames du Burlesque and the IC Kings put on an eye-popping, swoon-inducing, show filled with humor, lust and an affinity for vaudeville. They took over the Mill on the 13th, unsurprisingly packed the house, and then tickled everyone’s fancy with dancing, singing, and the strategic removal of clothing. What more could you want on the eve of Valentine’s Day? Or any day for that matter. If you missed them, there will be other opportunities to show them love. I encourage you to ‘like’ their facebook pages and keep an eye peeled for their next performance.





Oh, and ladies, Les Dames du Burlesque is presently looking for fresh faces to get up on stage with them. Check them out, send them a message, and let your inner burlesque star out!
