St. Louis’ Vicars & Tarts party was held at the Koken Art Factory in Soulard on April 19, 2008.
Along with musical and burlesque entertainment, Vicars & Tarts held a juried art exhibition called Sinners, Saints and Everything In Between. Artist Thomas Shepard (right) explains the technique of his work to a couple of attendees.
A mock confessional was erected for all to clean their dirty laundry.
A Bishop and the Pope. A costume contest was held at the end of the night.
Where all the night's entertainment would take place.
The first act of the night was the Furious Vixens. They played a variety of '70s cover songs in addition to a bit of performance art.
Burlesque troupe The Alley Cat Revue performed twice throughout the night. First with a song and strip parody of Mary Poppins “Spoon Full of Sugar.” Sinful!
...Followed by a kitschy “Devil Went Down to Georgia” (Flaming fiddle included).
Some party goers seemed more in their element than others…
The second musical act of the night was Blair and the Facts of Life. Lead singer Ria O’Brien fronted the '80s cover band and was also one of the event coordinators.
Enjoying the show.
The crowd dancing along to Beaver Soup's rendition of Weezer’s “Say it Ain’t So.”
Final band of the night, Chapters, dressed up in ladies' attire.
Displaying remarkable feats of balance and strength, Gravity Plays Favorites ended the night with their pole-dancing/Cirque de Soileil hybrid.
