Did you make it to the 5th Annual Shimmy Showdown? On January 22, Tessa von Twinkle and Lola van Ella kicked off the three night burlesque extravaganza with Improv-A-Tease: Live! at the Bootleg, a new performance space in Atomic Cowboy. Performers walk on stage completely unaware of the song or style of music Improv-a-Band was about to play, and yet they gave it their all.
