Seattle burlesque performer extraordinaire, The Shanghai Pearl and the PNW Glitter PAC (Pacific Northwest Glitter Political Action Committee) chime in on the upcoming Presidential race with ‘Burlesque For Barack‘ on Friday, August 31, in the West Hall of the Oddfellows Building (915 E. Pine St.). Doors open at 8 p.m. with the show starting at 8:30 p.m.

This “night of glitter, madness, and money raising mayhem” should be one to remember! The lineup, which is growing by the day, already includes appearances by: Seattle bad girls (in all the right ways!) Randi Rascal and Heidi Von Haught, the stunning Fuchsia Foxx, drag all-star Aleksa Manila, Stripped Screw Burlesque‘s Violet Tendencies, Sinner Saint Burlesque‘s Diva le Déviant and Doña Dei Couri, Flirty Sanchez, Scandal from Bohemia, the incomparable Armitage Shanks, the ever-mustachioed Ernie Von Shmaltz and more!

The show also features special guests: The David Guilbault Band and the one and only Mexican Elvis- El Vez! Even Seattle’s Luche Libre Volcanicas, will be at this event. That means there’s going to be tight costumed, high flying, masked wrestlers at this show. How awesome is that?!?

A killer lineup of burlesque performances, guest stars, musicians, icons and masked warriors in skin-tight costumes with flamboyant masks not enough for you?

Well, how about the fact that you could walk away at the end of the night with items by businesses like: Sin in Linen, Pole Fitness Seattle, Highway 99 Blues Club, The Burlesque Boutique, Something Weird Video, Babeland, and Beecher’s Cheese.

Still not enough? Damn, but you are a picky S.O.B.  You’re in luck though. There will also be an art auction featuring incredible original artwork from Seattle Erotic Art Festival founder, Jim Duvall and artist Josh Ellingson.

Because, as Pearl states “the possibility of Mitt Romney as our next President is a horrifying one.”
