It’s the battle of the boas – the feathered kind, that is – this Saturday, September 20, at the Fly By Night Musicians Club. It’s the semi-final heat of Miss Burlesque WA 2014. Georgette Violette, Lucy Lovegun, Penny Purr, Violet Velour, Darla Harland and Brandy Bows will make the feathers and fur fly as they try to tantalise their way into one of the three slots left in next week’s grand final. There, they’ll battle Ruby Slippers, Sugar Du Joure, Lulu Liqueur, Rose Noir, Odile Devine, Monet Petit and Lola Cherry Cola for the state crown and a shot at the nationals. Boylesque, er, boys Charlse D. Barkle, Zazel, Cupid’s Avatar, Baron E Tolle and Pirteman will also be competing for Mr Boylesque WA 2014, which goes to the man who most resembles Peter Boyle, the dad from Everybody Loves Raymond. Tickets are available online here.
