Thank you to our local and national sponsors and favorites, including:

Baltimore Horror Story:



The ghouls of Bawdy Shop Burlesque returned to The Ottobar for a night of tantalizing, titillating and terrifying burlesque all tied with strips of bloody silk to the gorgeous gore and salacious sexiness that is American Horror Story.


No matter your favorite season—Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak  Show or Hotel—Bawdy Shop Burlesque, with special guest stars from DC’s Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret—delivered your most demented dreams and naughty nightmares.


Nearly 250 souls joined our revelry--and now we're all DOOMED TOGETHER!


And we welcomed SPECIAL GUESTS from DC’s Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret:

  • Dainty Dandridge

  • Aurora Wells

  • GiGi Holliday

  • Eva Mystique (FKA Gypsy Dantes)

  • Lana La'Rouge 

  • Angel

  • Hell O'Kitty

  • Queen Nefertittie


This show marked the Baltmore debut of Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret, a troupe dedicated to celebrating and preserving the art of Black Burlesque. Its mission is to preserve and diffuse the art and history of Black Burlesque, Cabaret, Sideshow and Variety as well as create safe and accessible spaces for Black performers and audiences.
