In honor of Halloween and the many fantastic events that are happening around St. Louis this week, we here at Destroy the Brain will be spotlighting a different Halloween themed event every day this week. St. Louis is a city that loves the haunting holiday, and what is better than joining in in the fun by partaking in one of these horror themed happenings.
There is so much to do this coming haunted weekend that it’s hard to nail down just one event to do. Amidst all the Halloween themed parties and scary movie screenings, one event stands (on two legs adorned with high-heels) as being a truly unique horror happening. Turn the Other Cheek Burlesque Review will be presenting their “Halloween Spectacular” at the Handle Bar this Saturday, October 30th from 10:00 – 1:00am. The $5 cover not only gets you a peek at a little bit of skin but will also give you a treat for your ears with music by Googolplexia.
Turn the Other Cheek Burlesque “is a core group of badass women (& men) and a revolving cast of musicians, emcees, and novelty performers, we entertain our audiences with unconventional strip tease, pointe dancing, tap dancing, joke telling, music performance and composition, skit performin’, baton twirling, and some gender bending, all with the idea of celebrating and deconstructing the strange affliction known as humanity.”
If you enjoy a well rounded variety of talented ghosts and ghouls, make sure to head to the Handle Bar this Saturday night. Located at 4127 Manchester, the Handle Bar is a bicycle themed-bar that opened in 2010. Beyond just the allure of entertaining performers, the evening will have an added bonus with $4 Jameson’s. They clearly know what us thirsty horror fans drink. If you are looking for some live entertainment this Halloween, this horrific event should be right up your alley.
