A Dyke About Town: Burlesque, The Bobs and Pancho Sanchez

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Land of the Sweets:
Burlesque Nutcracker

Mercy and Cuteness had a good time at the Burlesque Nutcracker at the Triple Door, December 14. Cuteness pointed out that the inclusion of two drag queens meant the show appealed to both straight and Gay audiences. She noticed there was quite a bit of repetition from last year, and would like to see more fresh material next year. All of the dances used swing versions of The Nutcracker Suite.

The opening number involved six snowflakes in silver costumes stripping. Mercy liked the fact that Waxie Moon was among them. Cuteness liked the fact that they pulled snowflakes out of their asses.

Babette La Fave was fun, next, as the Clockwork Doll. Indigo Blue stripped nicely to the Snow Queen's music. Waxie Moon and Osiris Bombay tap danced masterfully as the Volga Boys, also stripping off their zoot suits.

Polly Wood did an amazing aerialist act. Indigo Blue did some quick changes as the tea lady. Waxie Moon did a lithe strip dance as the Rat King.

Ben La Creme made Mercy laugh as Madame Ginger, demonstrating how to make pasties twirl in different directions. Osiris Bombay was delightful in that number. Kitten La Rue and Babette LaFave kept up with him.

The angels worked their way through the audience entertainingly. Kitten LaRue did a hot cha cha. Waxie Moon and Osiris Bombay danced beautifully as Arabian Manservants in revealing costumes.

Indigo Blue's dance as the Sugar Plum Fairy was appealing. She did a quick change and joined Maxie, Kitten, Babette, and Inga Ingenue as the satirical Floreadora Dancers.

The SublIme and Spirited
Voyage of the Original Sin

Mercy has been getting a kick out of Colette Moody's historical Lesbian romance, The Sublime and Spirited Voyage of the Original Sin. The novel is effectively set in the 18th Century. Celia Pierce is a seamstress who longs for adventure. She is kidnapped by pirates who hope she can sew up some of their wounded comrades. Gayle Malvern is the daughter of the ship's captain, who winds up acting as captain while her father is unable to. Celia finds her adventure. The sex scenes are fun.

The Bobs
The Bobs were dubbed the first "new wave" a capella "group in history when they were founded in San Francisco, in the early 1980s. Now based in Seattle, this genre-bending, eccentric vocal group has maintained a healthy cult following in the U.S. and Europe in the 29 years they've been touring and recording, winning numerous songwriting and vocal performance honors along the way. You can see them at the Triple Door, December 26. Tickets at thetripledoor.com.?

Poncho Sanchez
Mercy and Cuteness are looking forward to seeing Poncho Sanchez at Jazz Alley. He will be there December 28 to December 30. He is an amazing conga player and salsa singer. He and his ensemble (George Ortiz timbales, Tony Banda bass, Ron Blake trumpet, Javier Vergara alto and tenor saxophone, Francisco Torres trombone, Joseph De Leon bongo and percussion, and David Torres piano), won the 2000 Grammy for best Latin jazz album. Tickets at jazzalley.com.
