Hey everyone! So the Atlanta Burlesque and Cabaret "meetup" group is officially down for good!
Now, we have a facebook to supplement our escapades and announcements! There is still the old google group up for a while if for nothing else than to give an alternative to those who do not like face book (yes... they exist) and so that I have an easy forum to write out the weekly interest stories, but I think facebook is going to be my go-to for most of the instant messaging and bulletins for the in-between incidentals that happens. Its more user friendly and more importantly, Burlesque friendly ;) So check it out! I am currently having a logo made for the group because pictures just don't seem to cut it.
Last club meeting we discussed the following:
-Page did a wonderful costuming presentation. If you are interested in doing a presentation at the meeting please let me know. It only has to be 15-30 minutes long and it can run the gambit of all things theatrical as long as you tie it in with Burlesque, cabaret and/or vaudeville.
-Syrens of the South announced their impending trunk sale and current fabric sale! If you are interested in participating in the trunk sale which will be happening some point in September, or, if you are interested in some really great fabric priced at $2 per yard, or $1 per yard if Renea Le Roux makes you something from it, please contact Syrensofthesouth@gmail.com
- The decision to actually let the meetup fold, and create a Burlesque and Cabaret facebook group was made. The only difference is, you will want to be sure to keep up with the calendar on the Atlanta Burlesque Group here! You can keep up with the calendar, check out all of Atlanta's local talent and see reviews done on past shows.
- Syrens of the South Anniversary tickets and passes to Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey's workshops are now available, and selling already! Have you heard about the lineup of the show? Not only do they have some of the most fabulous Burlesque stars in all of Atlanta, but they also have the incredible performers from Awalim performing and a few other surprises... cause the Syrens LOVE to surprise their audience! Not to mention those workshops provided by the bawdy Baltimor-ian bunch! I can tell you now that the Trixie Little and Evil Hate Monkey workshops have a limited capacity, so if you want to get in there, get on it! Go to www.syrensofthesouth.com

Syrens of the South caste their anchor into the Pyratecon Show Roster this past year and a great time was had by all! There was a lot of hub-bub about the port bough about these land lubbin' ladies and gents with some fancy equipment called... cam-arrrrr-a's (sorry, just couldn't resist!) Well, we just got the message from the homing pigeon that we might be gracing your libbin' rooms here soon. Check out the posted parchment here:
Pyratecon 2009 was filmed in New Orleans the weekend of April 3-5, 2009 and
will be aired September 23, 2009 on the Travel Channel at 8 PM eastern time.
