Bacchanal Carnaval


Lola Van Ella is going to London. So's Sturdy Gurlesque, and Tomahawk Tassels. That's the heart and soul of the St. Louis Burlesque scene, but don't pine too hard -- the ladies are merely heading to Jolly Ol' at the special request of the London Burlesque Festival, and they'll return home eventually. But before they go, Lola and the ladies want to remind you why you'll miss them with the Bacchanal Carnaval at the Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Street; It is your civic duty to attend the party in your finest Greek/Roman attire, because the ladies will be wearing very little at the end of their performances. Go Go McGregor, The Bon Bons, Whiskey Kiss and other local burlesquitas will also be strutting their stuff, so that $10 admission is a bargain. The Bacchanal Carnaval runs from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
