Velma, Velma, Velma, what have you got yourself into now?
As if running her own burlesque troupe (the Dead Doll Dancers); helping to save Cafe Cleopatre; theatrically teaching the history of Montreal’s Red Light District alongside Donovan King; and the semi-regular trips to burlesque festivals in New York and Las Vegas wasn’t enough, Velma Candyass is now doing a monthly show.
The aptly named Candyass Club runs tonight at the aforementioned Cafe Cleopatre (1230 boul St-Laurent, 2nd floor) and features burlesque, drag and all sorts of quirky entertainment. he night is hosted by the always fashionable emcee, Reena and Velma herself. Showtime is 10pm (doors 9pm) and sets you back a mere $10.
Until then, here are some pics from the first Candyass Club by FTB’s Chris Zacchia…
