It’s that time again: to celebrate the vibrant, weird, beautiful, innovative, sparkly, talented and quickly growing Philadelphia burlesque scene! It’s the second annual Golden Tassel Jawns: the community-sourced, charity awards event.
The event will be held Friday, June 16th at Ruba Club at 416 Green St and is produced by HoneyTree EvilEye and Josh Schonewolf.
It’ll pop off at 9 PM with live performances from the 5 nominees for Best Boylesque Act:
Brettzo for Quicksilver, Josh Schonewolf for Work, Sharp Robert for Preacher, Turnpyke for Bathwater, and Broody Valentino for Bears of Paradise.
This elegant night gathers together the many different parts of the burlesque community: performers, producers, crew and fans!
Award categories include: Meow! Best Kitten, Let There Be Light: Best Sound/Tech, Unlikely Boner, and much much more.
Voting is now open for community members!
Interspersed through the awards will be live performances for #SPLOOSH of the Year and the winner will be determined by a live vote. Previous winner Mika Romantic will announce the 2017 title holder. Up for the big prize this year:
Asha Rabbit for Cam Act, Sophie Sucre for Untitled, Tiel for Homeostatis, Pizza Wolf for Moon Babe and Cherry Bomb for Let’s Go Get Stoned.
We hope you join us for this event! Admission is pay what you can, 100% of proceeds go to Project Safe.
