Tassels on Parade

If you’re still sad about missing Dita Von Teese’s recent burlesque show at House of Blues, we have your antidote in spades … and feathers and sequins. On May 31-June 3, the Orleans will host the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. The main attraction is four nights of burlesque performances, including the Tournament of Tease (2011’s reigning Queen of Burlesque Miss Indigo Blue is pictured) and the 55th annual Titans of Tease reunion, which features dancers from the 1940s-’70s. Additionally, the weekend offers a variety of daytime events, including a special edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School; a Pinup Photo Safari; a Poolside Fashion Show; and, for the literary minded, Naked Girls Reading. Tickets for the weekend and to individual events are available at BurlesqueHall.com and OrleansCasino.com/entertain.

God Only Knows

By Joe Donnelly

I was well into adulthood before I could listen to the Beach Boys. And by listen, I mean listen. Because it’s easy to just listen to the Beach Boys, the songs are just too catchy not to, even in passing. But for the longest time, I kept them in the background. I couldn’t receive it front and center. I know now I was afraid. I was too immature. I had a feeling what would happen if I did listen. And I’m glad it happened when it did.
