Friday, July 17-Saturday, July 18: Worlds’ End Burlesque Revue

From their website: Once again the maelstrom has settled over Seattle and the winds threaten to tear apart all that isn’t secure. Come down to the Re-Bar to get out of the storm and stay for the stories. Join us for burlesque tribute to the creativity of Neil Gaiman. He’s written for comic books and authored many novels, movie scripts and teleplays. His stories have taken us from the lands of fantasy to the stars in science fiction tales. That is the just the beginning of what you may find waiting for you in Worlds’ End.

“Worlds’ End turns three and we’re celebrating,” said the show’s producer, Miss Violet DeVille. “With some new takes on stories we’ve told before and we have new ones that are eagerly waiting for you.”

Worlds’ End Burlesque Revue is July 17th and 18th at the Re-Bar.

Also known as Obon, the festival is an official Seafair event held at the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple. The main event is traditional music and dancing in the street in a giant oval. Many festival goers dress in Japanese kimono, yukata, or happi coats. The event also features Japanese food booths and refreshment, taiko and martial arts performances, and craft exhibits and demonstrations.”
