Burlesque, booze and boobs.

Once a month Bar Soma hosts a fun little evening called Carousel. Doors for Carousel are at 8pm and a band will play before the girls perform so everyone has a chance to get into a dazed and boozy mind set. From the burlesque that I’ve seen, I can confidently say that Carousel choose their dancers well. There isn’t a an unmade face, a routine that hasn’t been practiced, a cheap costume or a “political statement performance” in sight. Instead each girl brings a quirky, original number to the stage and looks sexy as hell doing it. And yes, most of these girls will reveal their breasts as frequently as Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs.

Last month burlesque beauty Lola the Vamp hit the stage and left most people in the room with their jaws dropped. Here are some photos of Lola taken by Kahlia Litzow.

Tonight Carousel will feature another Brisbane babe La Viola Vixen.

Kahlia Litzow photographs every Carousel and she sets up a photo booth so that every one has a chance to feel a little bit glamorous. Just drop a gold coin in her hat, smile or pout and say “BOOBIES”

The event is held on the first Friday of each month and it’s free, so there’s more money to spend on the women. Kidding!
