Eventually, the girls will reach Las Vegas for the annual Exotic World Weekend burlesque festival and reunion in June. Clams admits that though theyre all excited to check out burlesque scenes in the cities along the way, the main motivation for the trip is her own fear of flying. Ive been begging for years, Doesnt anyone want to drive to Vegas? she says. This trip really generated from the fact that Im agoraphobic and have wonderful friends.
Clams also hopes the show is a chance for Denver burlesque fans to get a taste of the New York scene. We run the gamut of burlesque classic, pretty comedy and I think the show is a really good representation of New York burlesque.
Catch the act tonight at 11 p.m. at Lannies, 1601 Arapahoe Street, before it moves on. Tickets are $20, $25 for VIP. For info, contact 303-293-0075 or visit www.lannies.com or www.burlesqueonthegogo.com.
