Shimmy Shack Burlesque with I Believe in Julio!: Westside fun with a side of great music

When the temps get cool, folks start to return inside to the comfort of a warm and inviting neighborhood pub. One of our favorite neighborhood watering holes is Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill, a unique westside venue with a distinct patina that only a longtime neighborhood bar can build up over years of use. 

Part of the appeal of the Tip Top is the variety of creative acts from local musicians to special DJ nights to even indie music touring acts (and often with a rockabilly edge.) 

On Saturday another favorite (and traveling) act from Grand Rapids sets up shop for a night of steamy entertainment as Shimmy Shack Burlesque, the creation of female entrepreneur extraordinaire Vivacious Miss Audacious, takes to the tiny stage with a fresh new show. 

Adding a new layer to Shimmy’s already solid line up of performers comes the addition of a live band to deepen your Burlesque experience with I Believe in Julio! accompanying the performers.

I Believe in Julio! will be supplying plenty of favorite cover songs from Ginuwine's "Pony" and Thrill Kill Cult's "Sex on Wheels," as well as classic tunes "Addicted to Love” and "No Diggity."

Shimmy welcomes two members of Indianapolis’ Rocket Doll Revue, Desiree DeCarlo and Mz. Vagina Woolf, who will join your mistress of the night, our very own Vivacious Miss Audacious. 

Shimmy has retooled into a live musical accompanist show and because of the amount of work that goes into each production is now an every other month, instead of monthly, affair.

While Shimmy Shack Burlesque may not be for everyone, those who do venture are encouraged to bring plenty of cash to tip the performers. You can even fan yourself with your cash if the temps get too warm at the Tip Top.
