As many of you know, I have taken some time away from performing and am focusing more on recording. I hadn't planned to do any shows in my hometown until after my next mixtape was released. However, when the owner of DYE LYFE gave me the details of her upcoming event and asked me if I'd be interested in participating, I HAD TO SAY YES. Why? Allow me to explain...
The event I will be performing at on February 27th is not a normal party...far from it, in fact. It's called "Dirty After Dark: A Burlesque Extravaganza." It's not a showcase, it's not a concert...it's an experience where dance, fashion, sexuality, performance arts, and music all intertwine. It's where the "Grown & Sexy" and the "Young & Hot" can mingle for a fun-filled night of mischief. I find it difficult to explain something like this without giving you a visual first, so after you watch the commerical below I'll explain why you MUST join us on February 27th.
This event, which takes place at Evil Olive, will feature 20 multicultural Burlesque performers in custom fantasy costumes designed by DYE LYFE Artistic Apparel. Because of the mature nature of a show like this, it can't exactly be open to the public, so technically "Dirty After Dark" is an invite only event. This blog is my way of inviting my supporters. Joined by my back up girls, Jahmilah and Keeley, I will be the headlining performer for the evening, and the entire extravaganza will be hosted by VH1's Simply Ophila. There will be complimentary catered delicacies and hourly raffles, and for those who want an even more exclusive experience, there will be a VIP area with it's own hostess and private bar as well. You guys know me...I don't participate in ANY event unless it's gonna be bad ass. This soiree will be talked about for the rest of the year, and it just might be one of the coolest events that you'll have on your social calendar for the entire month of February. As you can see, I'm delighted to be a part of it.
