Burlesque Month at California Clipper

February is burlesque month at the Clipper


Love cabaret? Can’t get enough of sexy burlesque? Then you need to head over to Humboldt Park’s California Clipper (1002 N. California at Augusta) every Tuesday during February for some fabulous shows. Chicago burlesque performer Eva la Feva curates the weekly shows, which will feature visiting performers like Rita Lynch from Italy, Tito Bonito from LA and Lola Love from Hawaii. And expect a range of other shows like circus acts, live music and singers. Shows take place each week at 9:30 p.m. but get there early (doors open at 8) to grab a good seat. A $10 cover will be charged and note that the hip cocktail bar is cash only. Check out this video for a teaser of what you’ll see.
