Geek About Town: Get your GeekGirlCon on with Tempting Tarts Burlesque

This past Saturday, GeekGirlCon teamed up with the ladies of Tempting Tarts Burlesque – and the Tarts did not disappoint! This is my 2nd time seeing the Tarts perform, and both shows were fun and super geeky. Rose A’Lee’s homage to the Watchmen’s Silk Spectre got everyone cheering (especially after a nod to another one of the Watchmen)! Another noteworthy performance was Pepper Patootie and Roxy Ruby tag teaming it up to represent Chicago through the musical stylings of the Blues Brothers.

Also, I’ve got to give props to our President and Vice President, Erica and Tammy, for keeping the fun energy up  between acts. These two have been fantastic as our mistresses of ceremonies!
