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.

Arising Tide

By Ted Lewins

This local modern rock band hit the outdoor stage for the second night of the Spring Rock-A-Thon (a three-day music fest sponsored by Vegas Rocks! magazine). They played with the power of a tsunami, and the current of music took me for quite a ride. The songs ranged from a tidal force of fast-driving frenzied beats to chilled-out grooves, placing Arising Tide’s sound somewhere between early Incubus and The Mars Volta.
