After Monday night’s weekly Nerd City podcast, Max and I attended this year’s Lebowskifest which was being held at Diversey Rock N’ Bowl (pics and video to follow). And while we were there we happened to make friends with some pretty cool ladies who perform burlesque around the city under the name Vaudezilla. Now, for those uninitiated with burlesque, it’s basically an old-fashioned variety style show with handfuls of striptease tossed in for good measure. They’re always a great, fun time. And the lovely ladies usually have a killer sense of humor. So we’re pleased to have met a few of the Vaudezilla crew; it only makes sense we’d fall in together. We hope to hear (and see *wink*) more from them in the future. But for now, here are some upcoming shows and dates!
