The audience at the Black Cat enjoyed a wickedly sexy start to the long weekend on May 24th where a burlesque and variety show may have actually tickled and shocked more than one viewer. Hosted by Deanna Danger and Khalima of RVA, the show also featured performances by Short Staxx, Melody Magpie, Cherie Nuit and Glam Gamz. Performances ranged from the cringe worthy to downright odd, with sexy lost somewhere in between. In addition to the ubiquitous twirling pasties and rhythmic disrobement, viewers also got a taste for some of the temptresses’ more twisted tendencies. With weird and hot mixing so well, one was left wondering what the people sitting to the left and right were going to do at home that night.
