Panty Raid's Tease-A-Thon and Birthday Bash 

In a Wad

In a Wad
One would think it'd be difficult to screw up something as timelessly appealing as beautiful people gyrating in skimpy clothes. But one look at the garish g-strings, Lucite platforms and faux tans on display at the modern strip club will convince you this isn't so. (Not to mention the music they play at those places!) It's no surprise, then, that classic burlesque shows have re-emerged in the past decade. Burlesque dancers have sought to impart some style and wit to the venerable tradition of ass-shaking, and Panty Raid!, now celebrating their sixth anniversary, is Nashville's contribution to the movement. They've earned fans with their skillfully choreographed routines (also, nice panties). This show features "cock rock" by the likes of Led Zeppelin and Blue Oyster Cult, as well as a cameo by Scott the Blue Bunny. If no one hangs upside down from a pole, you probably won't miss it.
