Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door
Where: Eyedrum

Atlanta, GA 30312

Syrens of the South is pairing up with New York City's best known, most popular and award-winning burlesque stars, Anita Cookie, Clams Casino, Darlinda Just Darlinda, GiGi La Femme and Minnie Tonka! These ladis are hitting the road and bringing their signature acts to stages throughout the country for a three-week tour that takes them from the Midwest through the South and up the Eastern Seaboard including Atlanta, GA, on Halloween!

The Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque On the Go-Go Fall Tour will be the follow-up to their incredibly successful 2010 coast-to-coast, 23-city Spring Tour including Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, Madison, Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Kansas City, Albuquerque, and Richmond. Dangerous Curves Ahead packed houses across the country and received oodles of critical acclaim: The Nashville Scene said "It’s a veritable aureole speedwagon as the Outer Boroughs’ most buxom babes go from zero to 38D on their road trip across America!" and the Phoenix New Times called the show, "An excellent night of twirling tassels and bawdy jokes."

Dangerous Curves Ahead showcases a group of the hottest and most innovative performers in the international burlesque scene. These burlesque starlets have rocked and shocked stages from London to Vancouver to Key West and are multiple award-winners at the annual Burlesque Hall of Fame Pageant in Las Vegas. Along with selling out venues across the US, they have produced standing-room only shows in New York City on stages ranging from Off-Broadway theaters to the trendiest clubs.

BODY:
The illustrious Syrens of the South production company presents the fourth installment of their Steampunk dance events dubbed the Mechanical Masquerade. Spotlighting the social scene that takes a futuristic look at alternative history in the way that Jules Verne and the science fiction writers of long past had done which makes the Steampunk subculture so unique and its effect has leapt from literature into music, art, and fashion.
This July 17th, the Syrens’ summer soiree is sure to raise those pressure gages to bursting. The music selections of Doctor Q and the entertainments provided by the Syrens are sure to make July even hotter. While many normally dress in large coats and brass for these dances, this summer we expect to see parasols, fans, and seersucker suits a-plenty.
If you have yet to attend a Mechanical Masquerade, you are in for a real treat. Not only is the music an eclectic array of entertaining delight, not only are there dancers and magicians and musicians oh my, but there are also a varied variety of vendors to feast the eyes of homespun crafts, stitched attire, mechanical marvels, and dazzling works of art and beauty to be had. It is truly on the forefront of the upcoming social scene that is gaining ground quickly. One could even say it’s full steam ahead. Be sure to arrive at 8pm and once the sun’s down and stay for the cold drinks, good company, and good times. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.syrensofthesouth.com.

Musical interludes shall be provided by the diabolical Doctor Q, a live acoustic set by the inter-dimensional Extraordinary Contraptions, dark entertainment by the temptress Talloolah Love, a costume contest for those dressed for dread, and all hosted by the charismatic Katherine Lashe, whose birthday shall be celebrated upon the stroke of midnight followed by the unveiling of the most terrific of horrors.

Merchants of the darkest of arts shall be therein including AnachroCon, Kyoto Song Designs, Mercy22 Designs, Penny Dreadful Productions, PH Factor, and Throne Jewelry. Do come, do peruse, and do not be afraid, for an escape from the reality of today so we can all worry about it tomorrow! Heed the Syren’s Call my friends for: “If I am mad, it is mercy! May the gods pity the man who in his callousness can remain sane to the hideous end!” Be dressed as if this shall be the last of your days, for it may very well be!

Come one come all to the Syrens of the South’s Mechanical Masquerade of Marvels and Merriment! Here now marks the first in the series of semi-monthly events brought to you by the marvellous mistresses of petticoats, frills, and thrills – the Syrens of the South. Come enjoy this maiden voyage away from the standard burlesques and enter into a world of neo-Victorian anachronistic characters. An evening filled with brass, leather, steam and SCIENCE! Modelled after the fantastic sub-genre of fiction, fashion, and music often called Steampunk or Victoriana. This event series promises to highlight fine vendors, entertaining amusements, and music that would make Jules Verne proud.

With song selections playing through the night by the illustrious host of the evening, the notorious Doctor Q, the evening promises to cater to all types from any time period. For those with finer tastes, there will be performances sprinkled through the evening to delight and defy the sharpest of imagination. And the lords and ladies may even wish to peruse the displays by the artists, vendors, and sponsors such as Anachrocon, the Clockwork Cabaret, Extraordinary Contraptions, Gentlemen’s Emporium, Penny Dreadful Productions and more.

So hop upon your horseless carriage, time travelling machine, airship, or otherwise and be sure to attend the festivities to dance, shop, and enjoy the cavalcade of clockworks and carousing in your finest threads or scavenged and assembled attire. Your finest threads could win fabulous prizes in our costume contest with prizes donated by Abney Park, Cherie Priest, Nick Valentino and more!

The burlesque production company Syrens of the South is extremely excited to debut their late night show, full of punch, variety and a healthy helping of tease, which promises to be a frothy, fun and an eye opening experience! They will be debuting their debauchery and fun-filled frolics on the Actor’s Express Late Night Show on May 30, in a show described by Debbie Michaud of Creative Loafing as “the show (that) goes from boisterous to sultry to bawdy and does it all with a wink and a smile.”

Also touted as “Very well put together” by Sharon Osborn, this production is sure to titillate and fascinate even the most discerning Danny, because there’s a little bit of something for every palate.

The two creators of the whole kit-and-Kaboodle are Katherine Lashe and Talloolah Love. August marks the Devilish Duo’s two year anniversary, and each show since has been a raving success. Playing to sold out rooms all over the south east, New York, LA and Boston, just to name a few, the Syrens know how to put together an amazing lineup of the finest burlesque, vaudeville, song, dance, juggling, and sideshow acts anyone can ask for. So don’t miss out on the show that everyone is going to be talking about!
