Burlesque in South Florida: Morgan La Rue & The Shimmy-Shake Revue at The Monterey Club

When you think of South Florida entertainment, things like Hip-Hop, Techno clubs and $30 Martinis usually come to mind. Retro-tastic burlesque shows, on the other hand, are more often linked to Vegas and SoCal.

Not this weekend. Tattooed beauty Morgan La Rue has been shaking the rafters at The Monterey Club on US 1 in Fort Lauderdale for some time now, and the doll and her ladies will be vamping it up again Saturday night.

This Saturday, December 17, Ms. La Rue will bump and grind on the Monterey Stage along with Val Vampyre, Francean Fanny, and Ember Furie (great names for some very hot chicks).  If the show is anything like past acts, it’ll be full of edgy, mod-retro burlesque performances, live music and plenty of punk-rock-a-billie rebels in the audience.

The show starts at 9; Beer and wine are served and there’s usually a BBQ truck in the parking lot. The Monterey Club is a very kool place for kats and kittens who dig the other side of the retro scene…the tattoos, bikes, hard-slammin’ rock and scantily-clad dolls usually associated with the seedy (and fun) underworld of the mid-century era. But if you miss this show, you’ll miss it forever…unfortunately The Monterey Club is scheduled to close just after New Year’s (for economic reasons). So get your kicks before it’s too late, Jack.
