Saturday, Oct. 29Masquerade Art Event & Costume Party

You’ve most likely been exposed (literally!) to Orlando’s burgeoning burlesque scene of late: A volley of sultry dance troupes shimmy and shake their way around town each week, performing fetish-themed numbers – from nerdy to gory to anime – at hot spots like Stardust Lounge and the Peacock Room. Tonight sees the full incarnation of the meme with Nika Santonino’s (former owner of Junkyard Saloon/Dungeon) grand opening of Bombshell’s Tavern, a brand-new venue designed after Christina Aguilera’s Burlesque and completely devoted to the art. Playing off Orlando’s other obsession, tonight’s Halloween costume party offers up art and photography displays, an aerial silk show by Big Bang Boom! Cabaret and music by DJ Professor Killjoy. – Aimee Vitek (8 p.m. at Bombshell’s Tavern, 5405 Edgewater Drive; $5; 407-730-3999)
