Thursday Tease-O-Rama

Thursday night there was a pre-event meet-and-greet at Make-Out Room. It had been advertised as an optional $5 donation in the press kit. In the local paper it said $6. At the door this turned into a $10 non-optional cover charge. Degenerates AA and PH had to work the next day and didn't want to fork over $20 for the one hour they could stick around, so they split while we slipped inside. It's a fun little club, like a mini Echo Lounge here in Atlanta. Be warned - they don't take no stinking plastic. Fortunately there is an ATM down the street. A nice Katherine Keener look-alike behind bar dished out reasonably-priced drinks in a blur as the place got crowded, then overcrowded.

A zippy local band was on stage pumping out some loungey jazzy instrumental stuff, led by Fisherman on the xylophone. They did a super cool version of The Animal's We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, perfect background music for mixing and mingling.
Seemingly at random, an act would appear on stage and do some fun vaguely-burlesque-ish routine, such as the traditional strip-to-pasties performed by the marvelous World Famous *BOB*.


"Sweet Dirty Darla" aka Eva Sabotage from Seattle's BurlyQ.


The Cantankerous Lollies, three beautiful girls from San Fran, tossed out glitter sometime during their set, thus the strange speckles on the photos below.
