In more … adult news, SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque recently announced a special performance at George R.R. Martin’s Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, NM. SuicideGirls is a geek-themed burlesque show that celebrates alternative beauty and indie culture from around the world. In honor of their host, their performance at Martin’s cinema will include a tribute number to Daenerys Targaryen.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, a non-profit which rescues displaced, unwanted and un-releasable wolves, wolf-dogs and other exotic canines. SuicideGirls founder, Missy Suicide, spoke of her excitement for the event.
“We are incredibly honored and excited to perform the SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque Show at George R.R. Martin’s beautiful venue,” she said. “We are such big fans of his writing and his powerful female characters. When conceiving this show we had to put a tribute number to Daenerys Targaryen as she embodies the kick ass strength we all strive for. To think that we will be performing the number in his theater, our inner fan girls are exploding with glee!”
SuicideGirls’ performance will be on November 16 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available at blackheartburlesque.com.
