Burlesque Show Visits El Paso Thursday
The group started out entertaining at Los Angeles area VA hospitals and word spread, prompting invitations from other hospitals across the country.
“I always had a love for vintage fashion and pinups and burlesque performance. In Los Angeles it was a popular thing for performers to do; you get to take the stage and use your artistic expression.” “My dad was a captain in the Air Force; he was a pilot. I grew up in a military family and I have a deep appreciation for people who are called to serve. It’s a community I feel connected to. So I decided to try to connect the two things.”
The group will perform Thursday at 5 Points Bistro, 3019 Montana. Veterans and active duty military personnel get in free. General admission tickets are $20 ($25 at the door) and reserved seating tickets are $35 at pinupsontour.com.
The money they raise is used to fund their trips to veterans hospitals.
