By Devin D. O’Leary [ Thu Feb 9 2012 4:24 PM ]
Stop by Launchpad tonight for a sneak peak of the upcoming Southwest Burlesque Showcase (taking place this Friday and Saturday at KiMo Theatre). Tonight’s pre-show party will feature live burlesque performances by such New Mexico / Colorado / Arizona shake-and-shimmy aficionados as Delicia Doll Curls, Joy Coy, Ann Gora, Malificent Allure, Madame Lennox and more. Local bands Vertigo Venus and The Hi-Lo Tones will be there as well, making with the tunes. This 21-and-over event will set you back a mere $5. But if you flash your tickets to Friday or Saturday’s Southwest Burlesque Showcase at the door, you get in for free! The fun starts at 9 p.m.

Scene and Heard
Rock Around the Clock
By Sam Adams
The Alibi Group Hug's Rockabilly Blowout went down Saturday, July 2, at the Launchpad. Acts included Jakob Insane, The Hi-Lo Tones, Cowboys and Indian and The .357s. Pompadours and faux orchids decked the night, with patrons trickling in from the Hot Rod Hop—a burlesque show and movie screening at the KiMo and the vintage car show a few blocks east on Central. By the time Cowboys and Indian hit the stage, the place was packed wall-to-wall. The crowd was swingin’ to rockabilly rhythms into the wee hours. Click below for some rockin’ photos.
