Geeklesque Gets Weird!
CRITICAL HIT BURLESQUE STARTS 2013 BY GETTING WEIRD!
Critical Hit Burlesque is excited to get their third year of Geeklesque started with a show that is so sexy!... so stunning!... so… weird?!
It's time to put down the chainsaw and switch the television to UHF as Critical Hit Burlesque, in association with Pickles Kintaro (San Francisco), brings Portland a burlesque tribute to the music and antics of everyone’s favorite master of the accordion, Weird Al Yankovic!
Geeklesque Gets Weird will occur at the historic Star Theater as a two-show engagement, with performances starting at 7:30pm and 11:00pm on Saturday, February 23, 2013. Hosted by the Mad Marquis, both shows will feature performances from Portland favorites:
Esequiel Esquire of Burlesquire
with bellydancing by Elise
And joining us all the way from San Francisco, we are delighted to host the originators of Weird Al burlesque, including:
Mistress Marla Spankx
Pearl E. Gates
Sponsored by Guardian Games, New Deal Distillery, Ground Kontrol, Flywheel Skate & Style, PortLUG, Bricks Cascade 2013, Purrfect Pineapples, and The Fancy Lady Society.
