OK -now- it’s really a thing that is happening ;) Arted-ed-ed-d.
True to the “no applause, just throw money” vaude-mentality, i’m an art deco alley cat.
The Burlesque Poetess & Those No-goodniks
(A party band worth rouging your knees for!) jojo The Burlesque Poetess has been seen at Steampunk World’s Fairs past in steamCRUNK phenomenon Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken TOys and as busking ruffian in The Tiny Instrument Revue. Known to rock out with her frock out on electric ukulele and flash frilly flapper behind - she’s here to front a vaudeville ‘n rollers musical experience featuring members of Army of Toys and Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band. From the Boston salons & seance parlours they bring steam-glam tunes, wax cylinder favorites, futurtorian covers, and the inapproetry, perverse verse & commedia your burlesque poetess is known for. Visit her keyring site, jojolazar.com (Speak easy, mister.)
We are planning to premiere at The Steampunk World’s Fair (May 18-20, 2012 in NJ)— and to minstrel about for you on ukuleles, banjo, clarinet, and cocktail drum-kit.
