I like burlesque and have seen burlesque that was fun, professional, funny, and very sexy (all at the same time). Dita Von Teese is AMAZING. Miss Indigo Blue (pictured in our feature) is rockin’ onstage. And Wade Madsen did a breathtaking striptease at the Moisture Festival (I know, ewwww) this year. I’m not willing to write off that entire genre of performance as inconsequential. Done well, it’s HOT. Skeptics should come out to the Fenix with me on Thursday, Aug 11.
