Dead Sexy Burlesque Presents 'Dead Sexy: Blood Moon'

They say that when Hell is full, the dead will walk the Earth. Well, this time they will shimmy and shake their way from Hades to bring you Dead Sexy Burlesque.

Under the light of the full Blood Moon and for one night only, New York's bloodcurdlingly bawdy Neo-burlesque will be resurrected at the elegant Duane Park. Dead Sexy: Blood Moon, is presented by Weirdbottom, along with the Burlesque Mayor of NYC, Jonny Porkpie and Jeremy X. Halpern.

According to Jonny Porkpie, host and creator, "There is only one full moon during the halloween season, and that is the blood moon. It is the time when the barriers between this world and the next become flimsier than a burlesque performer's silk g-string, and therefore the only time when Dead Sexy is able to cross back into the world of the living."

Porkpie also co-produced Dead Sexy weekly at The Crypt Cabaret from March 2013 until late July, when the show met a premature end after the venue shut down.

The ghoulishly delightful show will feature a bevy of burly babes bumping and grinding as some of your most beloved beasties. You can expect to see Jo "Boobs" Weldon, The Maine Attraction, Little Brooklyn, Sizzle Dizzle, Trixie Little & the Evil Hate Monkey and Mr. Gorgeous disgrace and defile the stage. Joining them will be gravedigger Poison Ivory and musical guest Corn Mo., with Jonny Porkpie and Baron Von Weirdo conducting the fiendishly frisky festivities.

You can catch Dead Sexy: Blood Moon on October 18, with doors opening at 11:59 p.m. Tickets are available for online pre-sale for $10 until October 17, when pre-sale prices go up to $15. Tickets will be available for $20 on the day of the show.
