The women of Modernesque Burlesque will bitch you out and strip down. They are Floridas gothic answer to the Pussycat Dolls: sassy, bodacious, sequined, and as the night goes on increasingly less clothed. Now their act is at Respectable Street, a dance club/café that revels in the unusual.
Barring a nipple slip, there wont be any bare tits, but there may very well be an auction of a Tampax holder, some silhouette play, or a salacious rendition of Happy Birthday. The six women, with Bond-girl names like Franceana Fanny and Isadora Bull, wield everything from whips to umbrellas to Hula-Hoops. They attract mixed crowds of men and women, and all the teasing and decadence go down without the ratty, gritty feel of a strip club. Its respectable.
Doors open at 9 p.m. Saturday at The Modernesque Burlesque Midnight Show at Respectable Street (518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach). Tickets cost $10 at the door, $5 in advance. Call 561-832-9999, or visit respectablestreet.com.
Sat., June 5, 9 p.m., 2010
