We're just days away from the Alibi Fetish Events takeover of Sister to bring you the results of the Alibi's Sex Survey and give you a taste of our Kinky Curiosities. Read on to discover our DJ, favorite drag queen and all about the charity we'll be supporting by partying on Valentine's Eve.
Spinning classics, originals and an eclectic soundtrack to keep us moving all while taking care of our performers, is our very own Kate SC on the decks for Kinky Curiosities! This dynamic DJ is an artist, performer and musician in her own right. She's a favorite collaborator of Cabaret Audacity, a staple of the local goth/industrial/ebm scene and kept us dancing at the Fetish Formal. Check out her Soundcloud and look forward to her aural love to surround you on Monday night.
We're also delighted to welcome back the first lady of Sidewinders, Renée Toya-Bouvier. This powerhouse of beauty and talent continues to wow us with her presence, and we're delighted to give her a platform to give us a glimpse of her wild side. She is also known as Renato N. Estacio, Artistic Director for the Southwest Arts Group and the Cabaret Theater at Sidewinders. She was nominated for the Outstanding Awards in several categories, and no one was surprised when Sidewinders took home the title.
We're also raising money for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. The NCSF fights for sexual freedom and privacy rights for all adults who engage in safe, sane and consensual behavior from pantsless roughhousing to high-fiving your spouse's lover. They're the only national advocacy organization whose exclusive goal it is to keep laws out of your bedroom, and the Alibi has been helping the local community raise money for longer than your MC has been a board member. We're happy to step up and make the NCSF part of Alibi Fetish Events; we all think it's pretty cool that they're fighting to make sure we can keep flying our freak flags. We'll have wares from our incredible vendors to raffle off
, and will be accepting donations, all of which go right to the NCSF. (Check out their website, the Alibi's Fetish Formal got a feature in the last newsletter!)
Get your tickets now, RSVP on Facebook and Fetlife (and invite your friends), and don't forget that you can bring your cameras to this one. The #alibifetishevents hashtag will be flying about the social media airspace.
At Alibi Fetish Events, even our crew is as beautiful and intriguing as our performers. Joining us to lend their strength to the stage, we're welcoming two beauties from the Duke City's boylesque scene, Eddi Fication and Rick O'Shea!
Eddi Fication is a member of Cabaret Audacity and will be performing at WILD this Saturday at Launchpad. He is the quadruple threat you didn't know you needed in your life and will be joining the Cabaret Band to flex more than just his muscles.
Rick O'Shea is part of the Sons of Perdition and is an accomplished power lifter and dancer. His experience on stage includes credits such as being part of the shadowcast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and in the ballet Dracula. Frequently seen on dance floors across our city, we're delighted to have him join us for Kinky Curiosities.
The Cabaret Audacity Band is lead by Arcane —an accomplished boylesque dancer as Satyricon, musician, professional kinkster and model. His prowess on the keyboards is infamous and his skills with a flogger are somewhat legendary. Arcane has been working, traveling and creating music with me for longer than we care to count, and he'll be accompanying one of our performers for a burlesque number, playing original music and passionate covers during some demos, and helping set the mood for the night throughout our party. He is as talented as he's pretty to look at, and we're going to make sure you get a good look. Care to hear more from Arcane and the Cabaret Audacity Band? Join us for the Vaudeville Open Mic every third Wednesday at the Sidewinders Cabaret Theater.
The results from our too-hot-for-print Sex Survey will be revealed from the stage through the art of of our incredible VJ Lithochasm. You've likely seen his dynamic work at Alchemy on Thursdays at Effex and at Oscillation Electronic Music Festival. He'll be projecting scintillating visuals throughout our party, and we can't wait to see what he's cooked up for us.
At Kinky Curiosities at Sister Bar, not only will we be unveiling the results of the too-hot-for-print sex survey, but we'll also be tantalizing you with fetishistic performances throughout the evening. Burlesque, music and demos will delight you from the main stage as you meander through vendors, tables and the incredibly well-equipped bar. Since this party is at Sister, you can order yourself some tacos as you enjoy the show, but that's true every night. Let me tell you a bit more of what Kinky Curiosities has in store for you.
A trio of dancers will be bringing you all the sugary treats you can handle in the hours before Valentine's Day. We're delighted to welcome the gorgeous women of the Femme Fatale Burlesque Cabaret! The Femme Fatales formed in May of 2016 and set the stage on fire this last June at Pridezilla in their first public appearance. Hailing from across the country, these dynamic women came together with a mutual love of burlesque.
Femme Fatale is influenced by theater, Broadway and classic artists such as Gypsy Rose Lee and Tempest Storm. Morgan Mayhem, Rosie Golden and Madame Delirium will be a force to be reckoned with on the 13th!
How could we celebrate kink and fetish without welcoming strong, powerful queens? We are thrilled to announce a performer whose poise and beauty captivates audiences at every act she does. She is a classically trained dancer with a flair for theatricality, balancing grace and agility in her enchanting performances that meld vivid movement and sensual striptease. In 2011 she began performing burlesque with Albuquerque’s award-winning troupe Burlesque Noir. She quickly became a local favorite in New Mexico and is an up-and-coming performer in the national community, having performed on stages from coast to coast.
Yes, that's right, Joy Coy will be performing! Instructor, producer with Unicorn Productions and someone you asked us to have back after the Inaugural Alibi On Tap, we can't wait to bow down to her glory. With Unicorn Productions, she's producing and performing in WILD on Feb. 11 at the Launchpad. Make sure to keep up with Joy's amazing adventures on Facebook.
Want to learn how to bump and grind with one of the best? Joy Coy's next round of burlesque classes at Tammy's Edge begin Thursday, March 23, so email email@example.com to sign up.
We still have more to announce —and we're giving you more than your money's worth as always. Go buy your tickets now via Alibi Bucks for only $7. If we don't sell out, they'll be $10 at the door.
Anticipation is one heck of an aphrodisiac. Here's another taste of what's to come! Our too-hot-for-print 2017 Sex Survey results are in, and all will be revealed at the Alibi Fetish Events: Kinky Curiosities party at Sister on Feb. 13.
We love burlesque, and we know you do too. For Kinky Curiosities, we're featuring some delightfully fetishistic acts from some of our favorite performers. You told us what you love, and we're putting it on stage.
You've seen her with Dirty Deeds and across many stages. Some of you fell for her at the inaugural Alibi On Tap, and we're delighted to have her grace our stage again. The one and only Perla Foxxx is five feet of fiery personality with a filthy mouth and the skills of a dancer who's been performing and producing since 2013.
She's fierce yet cuddly, and is everyone's favorite cochina. See her again Feb. 25 at Low Spirits with the Gilded Cage, March 3 for the Portland De Colores All Latin Review and March 18 at the Launchpad for the Circus of Sin.
Also joining us at Kinky Curiosities is the one and only Annie O'Roar! This founding member of Unicorn Productions has been twirling her ta-ta's in the Duke City since 2011. Her acts range from classic to neo-burlesque, and she's got something especially naughty for us at Kinky Curiosities. She has a fondness for snakes, fringe and fire.
The author of Yoga, Sex and Love: A Memoir of Life Under the Albuquerque Sun, we are just tickled pink to have Annie on our stage. Check her out at WILD just a few days before our show at the Launchpad, with Low Spirits with the Gilded Cage February 25th, at A Night of Classic Burlesque on March 10 and with Ms Foxxx (and Julian!) at Circus of Sin on March 18.
These are just two of the incredible performers who will be gracing us with their presence and showing us what they've got at Kinky Curiosities. We can't wait to see you there. Buy your tickets now via Alibi Bucks and get ready for the best Monday you've had all year.
Our too-hot-for-print 2017 Sex Survey results are in, and all will be revealed at Alibi Fetish Events: Kinky Curiosities party at Sister on February 13. Here's the first tease of what's to come!
It is our pleasure to welcome back the dynamic duo, Rip Williams and Shawna Cory! They brought a compelling energy that spellbound the denizens of the Fetish Formal, and we're delighted to have them back to perform a suspension performance at Kinky Curiosities.
Rip Williams is the long-time host of Guerrilla Photo Group (GPG), a frequent winner of the Best of Burque Best Arts Event and a group designed to hone the skills of photographers, models, art directors and more in a collaborative, nurturing environment. Recently, GPG partnered with Cabaret Audacity to help train photographers to shoot performances at the Vaudeville Open Mic every third Wednesday at Sidewinders Cabaret Theater.
A photographer in his own right, Williams has won Best of Burque's Best Photographer category more times than this writer wanted to go back and research. In addition to his work developing the visual chroniclers of the next generation, he also hosts two get-togethers per month at his Downtown studio for people who are interested in the art of rope bondage.
Shawna serves as the art director for GPG, curating (along with her team) their quarterly art shows. Shawna is also an accomplished photographer, and I had the pleasure of meeting her when we were both working with the Bella Donna Burlesque Review.
Rip, Shawna and their team will be weaving their magic on the main stage at Kinky Curiosities, headlining the demo portion of our evening.
Mistress Lexianna brought style, class and delicious sadism to the Dungeon of Visual Delights at the Fetish Formal, and we are delighted to bring her and her cadre of favored playmates to our team at Kinky Curiosities. Do you need further introduction? Let us encourage you to ask very politely.
There's more: Advance tickets are available at the Alibi Bucks site, and if we sell out they won't be available at the door. We're going to give you the best Monday night of your year. Don't miss out.
Because you've been calling and begging, we're going to let you buy your invitation to the Fetish Formal today at the Alibi offices until 5pm.
This evening of entertainment features fantastic performances, fetishistic demos, live music, dancing, catered delights, wine, an erotic art gallery, burlesque ... the perfect place to meet people at your best. You aren't going to want to miss the Inaugural Fetish Formal.
Get Downtown this afternoon and secure your invitation!
Mistress Lexianna was a regular at Opm, and came out to play at Thee Sanctuary's Deviance. A rare treat and a local favorite, she will be joining us in the Dungeon of Visual Delight, working with some of her favored submissives.
Because we knew how to ask, Mistress Chloe Night is coming to play in the Dungeon of Visual Delight. This performer, model and adult entertainer is coming back to Albuquerque to demonstrate some of her favorite things for your delight. If you think you've seen her pictures or in movies—you probably have.
The First Lady of Sidewinders Bar will be raising her glass with us and singing for us at the Fetish Formal! Renée Toya-Bouvier is a noted member of the United Court of the Sandias, raises funds for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the American Cancer Society, the Public Education Foundation (Nevada) and Rotary International with her dynamic performances and incredible organizational skills.
She is also known as Renato N. Estacio, Artistic Director for the Southwest Arts Group and the Cabaret Theater at Sidewinders. Renato was appointed by the governor of New Mexico to serve as commissioner with the State Music Commission, and he has performed in nine different countries as a singer and actor. (He looks fantastic in a tuxedo, but we talked her into heels.)
As Renée Toya-Bouvier, she is a commanding beauty and will be offering us classical and modern selections throughout the evening. She's also incredibly photogenic, and as a featured performer in our Cabaret Cast, she is likely to join you in the photo booth if you ask politely, and we all love tips!
Chastity Belt-off takes time off of hosting events at Duel Taproom to join our cast!
Remember, the Galleria Erotica and our professional photo booth will be yours to enjoy throughout the evening as well. Have you signed up for a tarot reading with Curio Lecter yet?
We're shining our leathers, re-lacing our corsets, and sending our suits to be dry-cleaned—are you ready to come see how hot a night in November can be?
Dancing over our heads and into our hearts along with our team of high-flying fetishists is our featured aerialist artist. A favorite of the goth scene, headlining in shows like the Bloodsucker's Bizarre in addition to her work with the circus community, she is exactly who we wanted to bring the theme song for the formal to life. Dancing to live, original music in addition to taking to the air several times for our enjoyment through the night, Sarah Katz Suski of ABQ Circus Arts is our dream come true.
Because our aerialists know how to share, we're also welcoming the team from Ascension to the Formal as well as the air. Ascension Body Modification is an internationally known team of performance artists who specialize in body modification and hook suspension. Touring with bands like Jane's Addiction and creating experiences for people across the map, we are both honored and delighted to have them join us at the Fetish Formal. Their work has been called beautiful and transformative—it's truly a thing to behold. Your team for the formal? Steve Truitt, Marlo Marquis and Mark Fischer will be suspending the gorgeous Victoria LeMeow.
Not sure how you're going to get tarted up for the event yet? Let Sarah "Baddass" Bridger of Genius Studios, noted makeup artist and hair stylist, treat you to an updo and/or a makeup session for the Formal! She'll be offering our patrons a discount to make sure you look your best. (She's the artist our band is trusting.) Contact Sarah at (505) 578-6536 or PrincessSarahHair@gmail.com to book your time to get spoiled and fabulous.
Throughout your evening at the Fetish Formal, you will have a variety of amusements offered to you: in the Dungeon of Visual Delights, demonstrations of some delicious play; in the air, dancers on trapeze, silk and lyra; from the stage, singers and burlesque dancers; working their way through the crowd with treats from our caterer, our cast of brilliant beauties. The people we've affectionately dubbed the "Cabaret Cast" are our multitalented performers who are singing, dancing and exercising their exhibitionism for your pleasure.
River Delacour has been heating up stages in Albuquerque and beyond and is one of the founding members of Arthaus Burlesque. This vixen brings not only beauty and brains, but also some of the most fabulous fetishistic skills—it is our pleasure to bring this talent to our stage and the Dungeon of Visual Delights. If you enjoy heels, you'll not want to miss what River does to our MC, or what a pair of scissors and the best of intentions will do to Rozalyn Black's formalwear.
Rozalyn Black will be gracing us on the main stage with an offering of burlesque. Rozie was a fan favorite at Alibi on Tap, and we're delighted to have her join us for the Formal. Ms. Black is a succubus who feeds off her audience, and we tempted her to the Formal by bragging about how fantastic you'll all look. Find her on stage, in the Dungeon of Visual Delights and turning heads as she moves through the crowd.
Eddi Fication just made his premier debut at Arthaus Burlesque Presents: Virgins & Veterans at the Keshet Dance Company stage. Eddi is a high-flying boylesque bombshell, and we'll be taking to the dance floor as he sings for us at the Formal. He'll also be serving as our lead waitstaff, as he has a certain way of being exactly where he's needed at just the right time.
Dancer, martial artist and nationally known burlesque performer Kit Kombat will be on hand to wow and serve the guests of the formal. This founding member of Arthaus Burlesque will be leading the way on the dance floor and offering themself as tribute to our own Curio Lecter, Bloody Maven of Burlesque and one of our hosts for the evening.
These four, plus Curio and Julian (Addams-Wolf) makeup the members of Arthaus Burlesque, and the troupe that plays together, stays together. Arthaus believes in art for art's sake, and we love the art of stripping and turning our fetishistic delights into exhibitionist expressions for your satisfaction.
And that's not all. One of the veterans from Virgins & Veterans and core members of Cabaret Audacity is going to be performing on piano, in the Dungeon of Visual Delights, and is our featured boylesque performer. Known as the Arcane Master to many, and Satyricon to fans of burlesque, this "professional hot mess" is bringing his best—and that means music, toybag and talented hands—to our party.
DJ, musician and artist Kate SC will be spinning originals, handling the music for our featured performers and giving you a reason to ask that person who caught your eye to dance. A favorite at Alchemy, and able to adapt to our unique surroundings, we can't wait to see what the brain behind Crystal Stasis is going to bring us.
We also have friends and playmates from around the kink community coming to play with us in the Dungeon of Visual Delights. You'll know them along with our staff above by their custom January Shop necklaces with "a" charms and their white fishnets.
We will have a limited number of invitations to the Fetish Formal available for only $40 at Duel Brewing ABQ during Enchanted PopUp Presents: Strangers with Candy at Duel Taproom! Stop by the event (no cover, great food and fantastic beer), and find Julian Addams-Wolf or Eddi Fication to purchase your ticket. (We'll have the Alibi's Square on hand, so please, cards only.) No matter if you buy one or five (bring as many dates as you can, we're rooting for you), the invites are just $40 a person—that's 20 percent off!
Please don't contact Julian and Eddi about tickets during the burlesque show; they'll be available before and after.
Stop by between 8 and 11 (except when they're on stage) for tickets, the show event goes until bar close!
Can't make it to Duel because you'll be at Leather Fiesta? Stop by The January Shop in the dealer's room—they're offering a different fantastic special just for the attendees of that event! (Say hi to Curio Lecter and Rozalyn Black if you see them there, unless they're... busy.)
