October 22, 2011

The wonderful Minnie Tonka, on frozen Lake Waconia, MN!

Boy have we got a treat for you! On Thursday November 3rd (one day before the next Happy Hour at Le Poisson Rouge), Minneapple in the Big Apple is extremely excited to be able to offer discounted tickets to a Midwestern Burlesque show in Gowanus, Brooklyn. In addition to the wonderfully named Minnie Tonka (seen here on the left), we’ll be treated to a wonderful medley of entertainment, dancing, and something called ‘nerd-core’. Here’s the press release, along with a link to buy tickets and the discount code at the bottom for true fans of the Upper Midwest. Can’t wait to see you all there!

Clams Casino is pleased to present a burlesque celebration of NYC’s favorite transplanted midwesterners: LAKE CLOTHES-BE-GONE! On Thursday, November 3, Lake Clothes-Be-Gone takes the stage at Littlefield, 622 DeGraw Street in beautiful Gowanus, Brooklyn. Doors open at 9pm for a 10pm show; admission is just $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

Lake Clothes-Be-Gone! is a heart-warming bump ‘n’ grind tribute to flyover country from a cast of transplanted Midwesterners. A place where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking and all the clothing is on the floor! From the Great Lakes to the Amber Waves of Grain, they’ll be heating it up like Cincinnati chili. Hosted by Iowa native and superstar nerdcore rapper, SCHAFFER THE DARKLORD, the show will feature performances by cornfed stars of the burlesque stage who can never forget their roots in America’s Heartland! Including Ohio native CLAMS CASINO, naughty North Dakotan GO-GO HARDER, Iowa’s own JEZEBEL EXPRESS, straight from Missouri LADY SCOUTINGTON, Minnesota hot dish MINNIE TONKA, Indianan stage kitten DOTTIE DYNAMO and midwestern tunes all night from DJ FRESH PRINCE OF DARKNESS… and all the way from Cleveland accordian/ukelele/comedy superstar team PINCH & SQUEAL! Lake Clothes-Be-Gone will be a trip throughout Middle America for a night that’s hotter than fried cheese curds, sparklier than Lake Superior on a sunny day and more delicious than a Powdermilk Biscuit! It’s bound to be a memorable night, bless their hearts…
