Liverpool's greatest Burlesque show- The Martini Lounge.

This Thursday at Zeligs, The Martini Lounge played host to a cabaret of International Burlesque performers. The show, compered by London's Fred Bear and starring Liverpool's own Millie Dollar, also consisted of comedy acts, audience participation and plenty, plenty of titillation. 

Check out the website for the next Martini Lounge date.

Playing host to both UK and international artists, Screenadelica at Percy Gulliver's sees a wide variety of styles promoting the bands the artists love, inspired by the music they hear. With digital download taking over the music scene, the desire to still own something physical makes the screen printed poster all the more important, driving artists to create pieces of art for each show which encapsulates the music in their eyes. This then means that rather than one artist representing the bands sound, they get a whole range of interpretations of their music through the screen printed gig poster.
