Panty Raids 7th Annual Tease-a-thon & Birthday Bash

To celebrate the birth of Nashville’s premier burlesque troupe, Panty Raid! the girls put together a three ring circus. Miss Lolly Pop and original Panty Raid! member Lula Licious hosted Panty Raid’s 7th Annual Tease-a-thon & Birthday Bash Saturday night at Exit/In.

A packed crowd turned out as Hot Lava Lizzie, Ramona Rouge, Claire Carnivalia, Lulalicious, Kicky La Rue, Violet Vixxxen, Freya Luna & Diletta Delight teased the crowd. There was hair hanging, trapeze and aerial tricks from Nashville’s own, Queen Of The Air Leela Sophina and Ringling Bros. veteran Chris Lemon. Gysyville, Shadhavar & Bodhicitta Bellydance “hip”notized the crowd, while The Spinderellas hula hoop troupe wowed the crowed with their hips as well. Tom Foolery showcased his juggling skills from atop a six-foot tall unicycle, Sideshow Bennie brought his usual mouth dropping freak acts and guest performers, Nataraja Yoga Dance Co twisted their bodies into pretzels. It was hands down one of the best burlesque shows I’ve seen. Every performer brought their A-game in honor of the celebration.

Across town, Those Legendary Shack Shakers entertained a crowd with their own side show antics. They are still, by far, the most entertaining band I’ve seen in Nashville. It’s always good to get you face rocked. The Clutters and The Pine Hill Haints opened the show.
