Main Show 8:00 PM
The event, come one, come all, the biggest show we have put on to date.
Starting off the show will be Terror EBM project Venal Flesh. From Washington, D.C. focusing on dark, unsettling atmospheres; heavy, crunchy beats; and complex, multi-layered melodies. Venal Flesh hopes to evolve the dark, heavy sound that was started by the first wave of terror ebm acts and create music fitting of the genre’s name.
Then were bringing it back with the Richmond Burlesque Babies. Since their debut in 2011, they have brought a edgy, comical & rebellious spirit to the RVA with their neo-burlesque style. Founded by Binky Daze, "The Black Sheep Bad Girl of RVA Burlesque" due to her brazen, do what she wants attitude. The group has gained critical acclaim with their unique themed shows & their ability to throw the traditional burlesque rulebook out the window.
Returning to the stage for this special show will be regulars the sultry Kimberly Kosmo, the wanton beauty Miss Midnight, & recently debuting performer, the bubbly petie pixie Melody Magpie.
Kittening the affair will be the upstart starlet Lilly Von Grimm!
And special guest headliner, coming straight from Washington D.C., Burlesque Starlet Maki Rolle. Maki is a accomplished Cosplay Model & has been seen at such events as MAGFest, Otakon, & Katuskon. Now she has taken the DC/Baltimore burlesque world by storm as performing at venues such as The Red Palace, MoCa, The Yellow Sign Theater & The Windup Space.
Recently winning Bunny Vis'us' First Bur-leoke Competition & was handpicked as the "Lady In Waiting" for the debut of the Zou Zou Revue in Washington D.C. are Miss Rolle's recent activities as she continues her ascent as the one to watch for 2013.
"GiGi Holliday has been quoted as calling Maki Roll her 'favorite new piece of sushi'. Maki mixes geeky, sex appeal with fluid, flexible movement. A true star on the rise."
Ending the show with the finale, will be local industrial powerhouse Low On Sanity. Formed in 2001 & recently voted Best Industrial Band by local music blog One Way Richmond, they have brought their industrial/punk/metal style to the masses. With their new album dropping Spring 2013, "Mechanical Disguise", Low on Sanity will be dropping new sound & best hits to end the evening right.
Now not any mere man can host a show of this much magnitue, we tapped the only person in the River City capable of holding down all of these combustable elements or dare we say.......Mayhem........? Last seen as special guest ring announcer at Ring of Honor in May 2012 & one of the mainstays of the beloved Richmond Lucha Libre (RLL), Shockoe Bottom's own Wonderland Chad will be our Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
