This Friday, January 18th, marks both the 3rd anniversary and farewell show for SinnSavvy Productions' Rosehip Revue Burlesque showcase—a bittersweet but nonetheless sexy occasion to be celebrated in the usual spirit at the Star Theater. Performances are promised from the reigning Burlesque Hall of Fame's King of Burlesque, Russell Bruner; Angelique DeVil; Lane Louche; and my personal favorite duo, Burlesquire (they're freaking insane, and I'm pretty sure it's impossible not to have a good time when they're onstage). This is your last chance to see one of the greatest local groups of burlesque professionals onstage together, so check it out.
And of course, I've got the hookup for you loyal Blogtown fans. One lucky reader will score two free tickets to this glorious finale, courtesy of big-time Portland burlesque sponsor Drambuie Liqueur. Just e-mail your name to our editor here with "STRIPTEASE" in the subject line (just to keep it fun) and we'll randomly pick you if you are, indeed, destined to have the free-est and best boob-filled Friday night of your life. Deadline for this contest is noon tomorrow (Thursday, January 17), so try your luck, and see you there regardless (doors at 8, and the show starts at 9). Tickets are $13 and available here or in person at Metro on SE Hawthorne at 35th. The Rosehip Revue was the first burlesque show I ever attended, and I'll always have a special place in my heart for its special brand of humor and incredible performers.
