Lowdown: A Better Monday

(Above: John McClurg lives life.)

Jah bless you, Va Va Voom Burlesque Vixens

Monday, long bemoaned as the worst of the days that end in "y" will be significantly more "bare"able this week thanks to your hard working local tease artists. The Va Va Crew will invade the cavernous Nocturnum for a special work week sexy soiree they are calling Fantaisie Noir. Again, on a Monday.

In addition to the cast of VVVBV regulars, the event will feature Baltimore "boylesque" performer Paco Fish and New York 'lesquer Amber Ray. Also, DJ ItchieFingaz will keep the beats fresh throughout the evening, as he does.

This has "good week" written all over it, HumCo. Other options in your Lowdown below.
