Tonight is the second of Dita Von Teese‘s two night engagement in New Orleans.
Cointreau presents An Evening with Dita Von Teese and special guests in association with Bustout Burlesque, featuring MC Murray Hill, Selene Luna and more. In case you missed that, the burlesque artist’s show is sponsored by Cointreau.
I would ordinarily be a little more turned off by this sort of front and center corporate sponsorship, but this event is in conjunction with Tales of the Cocktail, so I dunno, whatevs. Her interview with Gambit Weekly was rife with Cointreau name drops, but Ms. Von Teese was also refreshingly down to earth about burlesque. She does not make the distinction between burlesque artists and other exotic dancers that some make.
Oh, and she’s doing her famous Martini glass act. Excuse me, Cointreau-tini glass act.
9pm $28.50. House of Blues.
