The art of burlesque has never really fallen out of fashion—and that's a good thing. It's powerful and feminine and pretty damn entertaining. Watch the ladies of Gilded Lily Burlesque perform to live blues and mountain swing music tonight. Expect tease performances from local favorites like Maria Bella, Miss Ruby Sparkles, and Lauren Marleaux.
