The neo-burlesque movement is a welcome shot of frivolity and sexuality in America's all-too-often prudish demeanor. But as fun as those pasties and pinups can be, the ladies in the audience usually get short shrift. Enter Hurly Burly, the region's only all-male burlesque revue. Forget alabaster skin and voluptuous curves; this show's eye candy arrives by way of pure testosterone. The troupe will show off its tatted-up chests and fanciful facial hair in Friday's "My Furry Valentine" performance. With tongue firmly in cheek, the dancers -- who come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and body-hair cultivation -- use their senses of humor and masculine charms to entertain an audience that's encouraged to come stocked with single dollar bills and few inhibitions. Aggressive psychedelic rock band Black Seal will provide the tunes for the evening's entertainment.
"My Furry Valentine" begins at 10:30 p.m. Friday at Five Points Lounge, located at 2608 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. The cover charge is $5. Call 305-803-9014, or visit 5pointslounge.com.
