Syrens of the South are at it again on the Travel Channel! Who says it doesn't pay to be a little obsessed? This time, they featured the world famous Miss Exotic World competition. Now from what I understand, that airs tonight? I still haven't even seen the one from the Pirate convention so all you's have one up on me!
This Past weekend, there were some local burlesque super stars in the Little Five Points Parade. I tell you I have never envied a car so much as the spook show car ladies and gents, it was CRAWLING with blast off burlesque hotties!
I want to give a warm shout out to the beautiful Lala Luscious for letting her pink pussy car be invaded by Ursula Undress, Rosie Palms and yours truly! TRIBE's Art Cars section of the parade makes me want to start getting into car mods ;)

Syrens of the South Opening for Unknown Hinson 9pm
Syrens of the South will be opening for their favorite vampire, Unknown Hinson!
$17.50 advance / $20 day of show
Looking somewhat like Dracula's nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, this red-necked crooner gained regional popularity with a self-produced television show in 1992 and soon was touring nationwide, wowing audiences with his outrageous and campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone. Hinson’s most recent CD release, Target Practice, melds weepy twang and searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone-bad and the dark side of the honky-tonk lifestyle.
Syrens of the South, named 1st Runner-up for Creative Loafing Atlanta's Best Burlesque Troupe 2009, will be opening the show promptly at 9pm with a blend of Halloween and Rockabilly Burlesque!
Oct 25 – noon-2pm "Give 'Em Some! With Ursula Undress"
We all know that, like the rhinestone, the art of burlesque has many facets. Not only do you need to master the art of taking it off, costuming, and hair and make-up, you also need to have some real stage presence and audience interaction. This class will help you get over your fear of being on stage, get comfortable with eye contact, and warm you up with basic acting techniques - all guaranteed to bring out your inner Tigress...or Goddess, or sex kitten, or saucy wench....the list goes on and on. Please wear clothes that you can really move and stretch in.
2pm-4pm “What’s in a Name? with Sabrina Pandora”
Work on stage names and intros with Sabrina Pandora. Students will be instructed as to how to come up with a proper persona and how to write catchy intros for an Emcee to use as their first impression. Sabrina is an accomplished stand-up comedian has been chosen to host many events all over Atlanta. She gives stellar advice for any budding performer!
