Even a strictly sugar-free diet could, from time to time, use a sweet break. The fetching vixens of Cupcake Burlesque offer a calorie-free helping of candy that's far more likely to get the heart racing than to rot the teeth. South Florida's female-founded burlesque troupe performs in classic style with a modern flourish. Saturday's show, for instance, takes a different turn, when the ladies perform in synch with cover-band-with-a-twist Audio Heist. The evening's entertainment is scheduled to include the freshly baked talents of three new "Babycakes" who will debut their live acts. Brooklyn-based three-piece Les Racquet also shares the bill.
Audio Heist and Cupcake Burlesque perform together on Saturday. The doors open at 9 p.m., and the music begins at 10. The performance is at Five Points Lounge, located at 2608 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The cover charge is $10. Call 561-235-CAKE, or visit cupcakeburlesque.com.
