Bettie Rage Presents: The Moonlight Howlers in Tucson, AZ on June 22nd at Surly Wench Pub! Excited to get back together with my Bettie Rage sisters to let our hair down and listen to some bitchin’ tunes!
Here’s an interview I did with geekorama.net’s Jenn Hopkins regarding my burlesque journey and the performance I’m doing tonight in “Talk Nerdy To Me: A Byte of Burlesque - Part Deux!“ It’s 9pm in the “Salon” at the Renaissance Hotel. Your Phoenix Comicon pass and a valid ID showing you’re 18+ gets you in!
Excited to be a part of Talk Nerdy to Me: A Byte of Burlesque - Part Deux! at Phoenix Comicon on May 24th. I’ll be bringing my Princess Peach act, and joined by my fellow Tucson burlesque gal pals Nikki Riot and Olivia Twisted. More info on the event page and here: http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/guests/906

Local performer Bunny Boom Boom and I are featured in this cool book which documents burlesquers with their furry friends. I posed with my saucy Tortie, Jenna:
You should have seen me running all over a yard trying to catch this firecracker of a cat so we could take a picture together! ”Come here, I LOVE YOU!!!!” I yelled, delicately padding after her in rhinestoned heels and a panel skirt. So much hissing! Just like her mommy.
In addition to all the art being showcased throughout the night, performances by*:
Safos Dance Theatre
Flight School Acrobatics
Quiet Please Music
DJ Eric Meyer and more!
*Staggered throughout the evening in 15 minute intervals starting at 8pm
I think a lot of us have bullies in our lives, and unfortunately sometimes those bullies take the form of our mothers. Which is fucking sad.
Be happy, healthy, and most of all - work the shit outta whatever you are! Burlesque ended up being an unexpected means for me to achieve body acceptance and love, and I went one step further and tried to articulate this in the form of an act.
I hope I get to perform this act again somewhere soon…
Performed during the 2012 RAWards at Plush Tucson, November 15th, 2012.
Because of the video’s quality, you can’t see what initially is written on the paper on the banner stand. Here’s what was written on it:
“The BIBLE tells us NOT to show OUR BODIES.”
“I’m your mother and I’m two sizes smaller than you.”
“The DEVIL is laughing at our family.”
“If you would just LOSE WEIGHT, you could get a boyfriend.”
“FATTY, FATTY, 2 x 4, suck my dick you dirty whore.”
Atkins. South Beach.
- Nine Inch Nails, “Terrible Lie”
- Nancy Sinatra, “You Only Live Twice”
- Katy Perry, “Part of Me”
