Sweet Soul 10 Year Anniversary
Saturday 02 February 2013
That's right Sasspots. You heard us.
This will be a show to REMEMBER.
In late 2002/early 2003, some wild n' brazen girls found each other over a mutual love of retro lingerie, dancing to rad music and playing dress-up. They figured, hell. Let’s try doing this "burlesque" thing we've been reading about. Why not? That’s a thing right?
Ten years later, the members of the Sweet Soul Burlesque have hosted and produced over 100 events (including stadium shows and tours), co-founded one of the first international burlesque festivals, built & ran their own infamous underground venue Dollhouse Studios, opened the body/sass-positive dance studio Vancouver Burlesque Centre, and been nominated six times at the Burlesque Hall of Fame (including World’s Best)… all while terrorizing audiences from Acupulco to Whitehorse between their resident weekly gig at one of the country’s finest cocktail lounges, The Keefer Bar.
Guess what? Our plans for this year are even BIGGER. But before we launch into our next phase, we feel that its important for us to take a moment to linger lovingly back down our special memory lane covered in graffiti, glitter, stockings, lipstick prints and many many MANY empty whiskey bottles.
