On Dec. 5, 1933, Americans regained the freedom to imbibe! Repeal Day is fast becoming a nationally celebrated holiday, yesterday was the 81st anniversary celebration with an evening of live music, burlesque, craft cocktails, and costumes from the time of Prohibition. Local craft bartenders created pre- Prohibition era cocktails while live music filled the 1924 movie palace! Performances by members of Olympia’s own TUSH! Burlesque were amazing! Check out the night in pictures.
Our good friend Nani Poonani is performing at the Capitol Theater with Stripped Screw Burlesque in the production Disney After Dark on April 12th at 8pm. Nani is bursting with character and has a great routine you won't want to miss! If you ever thought you might like to see a burlesque show, this is the one for you. Shout out to Shelby Rude for the hat, which happens to be from my 'Rude Hatter' shoot years ago! I think they're a perfect fit. If you make it out to the show and want to smell nice be sure to pick up a bottle of homemade Wiggle fragrance from her Etsy shop. Go Nani!
We had an amazing time last Friday doing promo shots for my good friend Nani Poonani. She is an amazing burlesque performer and part of Olmypia's Own TUSH! burlesque troupe. These shots are a little sneak peek at her routine she will be performing at Morbid Curiousitease presents Bombshelter Burlesque & Catastrophe Cabaret on 4/20 at the Jewelbox Theater. If you haven't seen Nani perform you are missing out.
On a typically drizzly Wednesday the artist and do gooders came out in force to celebrate the Best of Olympia awards party hosted by the Weekly Volcano last night at Capitol Theater. There was a really great turnout and lots of Olympia Pride on display. Hosted by the magical Elizabeth Lord, who was a mighty fine looking mustached cowboy. Entertainment was provided by Olympia's Own TUSH! burlesque troupe. Live music was provided by Science! and Mosquito Hawk. I was announced the Best Music Video Producer in Olympia which was awesome! Really looking forward to working with some of the people I met. I wish I could have shot more smiling faces but all in all, it was a great night!
