Exotic World Weekend 2008, not really a wrap-up...

The goal of this blog has never been to become an "inside burlesque" kind of thing, beyond writing about the experiences of being independent producers and creators in New York, and pointing people at shows they should see and support. So, there's plenty of digital ink being spilled about the great and not-so-great things about the just completed Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, on yahoo forums, blogs, livejournal groups, you name it, and it's easy enough to seek that out if you're interested! Here's what I'm writing: it was an amazing weekend. And I could not be more proud to report that Miss Clams Casino won not one but two coveted trophies, for Most Comedic and Most Innovative (a tie with the great Trixie Little from Baltimore). Here's a great wrap-up of Saturday night's action, including her performance, in Las Vegas Weekly.
