Decadent Photos!

Finally! Here are some photos from Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque. From Dandy Dillinger’s 1920s showgirl fabulosity to Candy Applebottom’s 2010s tribute to staying connected, we traveled through time on Saturday, April 22 and never looked back. Thanks to everyone who came out to The Triad and made the voyage so fantastic.

The ’50s was a transformational decade, taking us from war and depression to a more fun, forward-looking youth culture that would dominate the second half of the 20th century. Nothing illustrates that more than the rise of rock and roll. And who better to shake, rattle and roll for you than Shimmy LeCoeur?

1. What is your favorite thing about the ’50s? 

My favorite thing is how the music changed and transformed a generation to rock’n’roll lovers. It was an awakening of the senses and showed just how music could change the world.

2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?

I’d love to have dinner with Elvis Presley and have him sing for me. Wouldn’t it be amazing g to really see how he feels about changing music and becoming the real king of rock’n’roll?

It would indeed!

Come see Shimmy up close and personal on April 22 for Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque. Tickets are ON SALE for this fantastic journey to the ’50s and beyond, so buy yours today!

There are less than two weeks until Luscious Lane’s CakeBall Masquerade, a burlesque review featuring some sweet and sexy “flavors.” Luscious Lane sat down with some of the performers who inspired her. Meet Shimmy LeCouer.

LL: How long have you been burlesquing?

I started burlesque dancing four-and-a-half glorious years ago. I was actually taking the Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp class and they offered a workshop for their Christmas show. Sometimes there are funny reasons that bring you to something that becomes such a wonderful part of your life. Regardless, I needed something to step outside my comfort zone and thought, what could do that more than stripping down on stage? It became the best experience of my life.

LL: What drew you/draws you to burlesque?

Not only have I met so many wonderful, amazing women who have become so important in my life, but I have found a side of myself that was hidden and needed to be expressed. I wouldn’t trade my burlesque life for anything.

LL: What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?

During the day I am a nurse. When I started burlesque dancing I was going to nursing school and found ways to dance while studying and working full time. Burlesque was my escape from all the craziness that was my life at the time. So during the day, I take care of people medically. During the night I shimmy into their hearts and give them a glorious jumpstart.

LL: I was inspired by your burlesque name to create a cakeball flavor. Any guesses as to what I have up my sleeve?

I think my burlesque flavor would be sweet but have a sexiness about it. My dances start out sweet but always end with a level of sexiness shimmying across the stage.

Let Shimmy shimmy across the stage and jumpstart YOUR heart. Get your tickets for the CakeBall Masquerade today.

Hurry, they are selling fast!

See you at The Triad on April 16!

A Little Sketchy

Saturday, February 13 was a cold night in New York City, but these lovelies left the Triad audience sizzling.
