It’s a bird! It’s a plane! …It’s a burlesque dancer’s corset! (See what we did there?)

It is always a spectacle when you are at a show in New Orleans and this month’s lineup is nothing short of tassels, laughs, twirls, sips, and serves.

You obviously know of us already as the birthplace of some of the greatest talents and musical genres across the board, and talent is always the star ingredient in our gumbo of a city. So, if you are heading to the Crescent City this list is a great way of making connections with new faces amongst some of the iconic performers, producers, and fantasy makers in our boundless nightlife scene.

A few final tips: 

1. Fuel the fun and cheer if you see something you like!

2. Tip your performers! Bring your $1s, 5s, 10s, and 20s! 

3. Consent! Do not touch those performing for you without it. (This also goes for your involvement in their acts!)

4. Things that come off do not belong to you! If you catch a falling star, please do not put it in your pocket. 

5. Share the experience on social & tag them! It’s called social media marketing, duh.
