Oh! You Pretty Things: A Burlesque/Cabaret Tribute to David Bowie @ Club Oberon *Tonight*

I only just heard about this. There was an “off-Broadway warm-up” at the Rosebud in Somerville this past weekend, and tonight is the full extravaganza at Club Oberon in Harvard Square. It’s “Oh! You Pretty Things: A Burlesque/Cabaret Tribute to David Bowie,” and it features “24 Bowie tunes, from “All the Young Dudes” to “Let’s Dance” redone in energetic lounge style with a 10-piece band and seven scantily clad dancers.”

This event is hosted by Niki Luparelli (“Neo-cabaret vamp, Vaudeville comedienne, pinup model and bleach aficionado,” in her own words). “We’re going to do this until he sues us or comes out of retirement,” Luparelli said before Saturday’s Rosebud show. Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.

Lucha VaVoom – Mexican Masked Wrestling, Burlesque & Comedy @ the Royale

If you’re wondering how to possibly cap off The Dresden Dolls and Walter Sickert’s InkDrip Sessions… here’s an idea for you: Mexican Masked Wrestling and Burlesque. Lucha VaVoom will be making a stop at the Royale on Monday night. While I can’t quite imagine such an event at the distinguished and at least somewhat classy Royale, I imagine this might be just the sort of night, at the very least, for that smoke machine. I’m at a loss at how to even describe this spectacle, so I’ll let the video speak for itself.
