Get Your Geek On Burlesque
A Night of Burlesque Dancing Empowers Local Women
Seattle, Washington, March 21, 2011 – For one night only, GeekGirlCon is excited to bring you a night of geeky burlesque dancing and live jazz music at the Solo Bar in Queen Anne, starting at 7:30pm. Bring your opera glasses; it is sure to be a full house!
GeekGirlCon presents a celebration of women by hosting an evening of burlesque dancing that is sure to thrill you. “GeekGirlCon extols female involvement in all fields of Geek culture. The underpinning of this is having women proudly own themselves and what they love. Burlesque is exactly that. It is playful, sexy and above all, it is empowering,” says GeekGirlCon’s president, Erica McGillivray.
The show features Miss Elaine Yes, Laela Lovechild and more, with live music provided by the Ron Weinstein Trio. The show will begin at 7:30pm sharp at the Solo Bar, 200 Roy Street in Seattle; this is a 21+ event, and the cover is $10. Happy hour will be all night, but 9:00pm is when the show is over, so don’t miss out on the fun.
In addition, the burlesque show is the perfect place to drop off a new, unwrapped toy for GeekGirlCon’s TARDIS. All of the toys will be donated to Seattle Children’s Hospital when the TARDIS is full, so help GeekGirlCon fill it up.
GeekGirlCon is a non-profit organization passionate about promoting women’s contributions to geek culture. We are having our first annual convention October 8 and 9, 2011 in Seattle at the Seattle Center Northwest Rooms. To find out more about GeekGirlCon visit http://www.geekgirlcon.com.
