The Mess-tival: Strip the Unstrippable Dream BurlesqueJeez LoueezEmpeROAR Fabulous!!!Sgt. Die Wies

The Hottest Mess in Burlesque

The Albuquerque burlesque scene has always thrived on the weird versus the pretty, the neo versus the classic. Powerhouse Productions, consisting of Mayo Lua de Frenchie, Jane Sweeney, Dr. Killgreedy and Holly Rebelle, brings a weekend of the bizarre. Kicking off The Mess-tival's inaugural year at Sister on Friday, Sept. 20 at 8pm is the Strip the Unstrippable Dream Competition, where 12 competitors face off to “unstrippable” music to ultimately win the title “Hottest Mess.” If you've ever wanted to see internationally renowned performers strip to “We Built This City,” anything by Weird Al or horrific dubstep, this is the show. Saturday, Sept. 21 brings night two, the Bizarre Beauty Showcase, at 8pm at Launchpad which welcomes even more stellar performers to the 505 for unbookable, messy, strange and confusing striptease. The shows star EmpeROAR Fabulous!!! (Wash.), Jeez Loueez (La.) and Sgt. Die Wies (Calif.) for the weirdest, wildest and most unsettling weekend of burlesque ever witnessed. The shows are both 21-plus and cost $15. (Ashli Kesali)

Powerhouse Productions brings you an event unlike anything else in the area! This event will pin 12 competitors against each other with an act to a hard to strip to or “unsexy” song. After our judges deliberate, the top 4 will have to strip for their lives in order to be crowned our "Hottest Mess"! We will be bringing you the weirdest of the weird, the tackiest of the tacky, and the silliest of the silly.
