Expo 2015: The Bordello

Dear Constant Reader,

On Friday night, after The Rhinestone Revue, we moved next door into The Bordello for some more performances in a cabaret atmosphere with a dessert bar. The chef really outdid himself on those desserts, in particular the pumpkin pie and the lemon bars, but everything was great.

I think I can recall everyone’s acts, at least a little, since I spent a fair bit of time socializing and didn’t always catch everyone. The show was hosted by Ruby Besler, teaching us all a few naughty lessons and saying “beaver” as often as she could.

  • Chakra Tease teased us with a little “yogalesque”. Her balance and flexibility was impressive. Makes one want to get out the old yoga mat.
  • Prima Vera sang a favorite song of Scratch’s, “You Can Always Count on Me”.
  • Raven Gemini did a stunning number with wings of Isis.
  • Mona del Rio burned up the stage singing & stripping to “Proud Mary”.
  • Clara Coquette also burned up the stage with her fire-themed costume and veil-fans.
  • Doctor Vu as the X-Man Rogue, going strong even after her music cut out. The hotel sound system screwed a number of performers that night.
  • Vivi Noir got dirty in her bathtub. Yes, she brought her own bathtub all the way from NJ to Boston.
  • Maggie McMuffin got it on in her Porn Theatre to actual ’70’s porn soundtrack music.
  • It’s always a treat to see Vivian Vice, especially on stage. And of course she used a fan, her signature prop.
  • Joy Va Voi came next with a trip to a tropical isle and a fabulous headdress. Her song was incredibly naughty… if you already had a dirty mind.
  • FiFi Switchblade had a divided white/red costume to show her angelic/devilish nature as she danced to a song from a Dr. Who episode (really!).
  • Delilah Spring closed it out with her Tiki Fan Dance. I was particularly pleased to see her graceful teasing as I’m the one who taught her to fan dance.

    I tend to change into a slinky black dress for the occasion. This was this year’s pick:

    Don’t forget you can help The Expo with its first-ever fundraiser!
