Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013's Lowdown

Does Humboldt have to stop dressing up in costumes now that Halloween is over? The members of Va Va Voom Burlesque Vixens answer that question with a resounding "nuh uh" on Saturday night with their annual Dia De Los Muertos Show at Nocturnum. There will be plenty of eye candy as all your beloved favorites -- Blowtorch Bettie, Kitty Cox, Ophelia Cox and Richard Rumblepack, to name a few -- tease and tantalize you. 

The costume-wearing isn't limited to the performers. Attendees have the chance to compete in multiple costume contest. So go all out.

Plenty of less titillating options in your Saturday Lowdown below.
