This just in from our beautiful burlesque bosom-buddies:
“Back in January, Belmont Burlesque and Vaudezilla made a splash with the announcement of the first-ever Windy City Burlesque Fest. Since then, they’ve been working hard to make this an event worthy of the birthplace of American Burlesque.
When the Second City becomes the First City of Burlesque from April 15-17, 2010, performers from all over the world will be here to join in the celebration. The Windy City Burlesque Fest is proud to announce the following headliners and featured performers:
Kitten DeVille [Hollywood, CA]
Anna Fur Laxis [Yorkshire, United Kingdom]
Foxy Tann [Twin Cities, MN]
Kellita [San Francisco, CA]
Not enough for you? We’re presently working on our roster of performers who will be joining our headliners and featured performers for seven performances on four stages over two nights. We’re at over 70 right now, with more added every day. Check out WindyCityBurlesqueFest.com to see who’s going to be a part of the biggest burlesque party Chicago has ever seen!

Sounds like a good time to me. Nerd City will of course try to be present, making awkward, bearded conversation with girls who want to run far, far away from them.
