Dancing with Mary Jane Show
Once again, The Bat City Bombshell’s show, Dancing with Mary Jane, has been a success. This infamous tribute to Austin’s marijuana culture pays homage to the Gods of the Green with routines inspired by the contraband, influenced by it, or imitating it’s culture.
After an crowd pumping set by hot-club jazz band, Chico Chico, the audience took it’s place ready to be raised to the heights of euphoria. Introducing the show with their illustration of the consequences of contraband, were the Texas Burlesque Festival, nuvuex nuit Audience Choice Award runner up, Holli Pop and J-Bird.
The enticing Nina Josephine brought us grace and sensuality all rolled up in one smoking-hot routine. Strawberry Tart unveiled a new act that showed us something very beautiful indeed. Dolce Dream brought us to a dark and mysterious place with her Strange Face of Love routine. Kitty Sangria took us on a “trip" into intrigue as a black light poster come to life. The always fun Jen ‘N Toxic debuted a new routine with a “bang!" The always provocative Shell Shock, showed off her glorious ASSets in a number to the always psychedelic “Back Door Man" by the Doors. Holli Pop came back later with a solo that illustrated how using the right “herbs" in the kitchen makes domestic life far more entertaining.
Special guest, Remy Martini ruled as the Queen of the Green in her very own tribute. From her meticulous costuming, incredible dance talent and innovative reveal, this voluptuous red-headed tonic lit the stage up. The delightful Roxie Moxie posed a question that definitely needed delving into- What would a CHRONICally depressed cartoon donkey do? In her tribute to the Austin tradition, Eeyore’s Birthday Party, Miss Roxie Moxie portrayed what happens when donkeys go wild. Pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey has never been this sexy.
To close out this night of intoxicating ecdysiast entertainment, The Bat City Bombshells took the stage as a troupe with their ode to the two most beautiful things in life, pussy, and marijuana. In a Vegas showgirl style routine turned contraband-couture these girls brought sex-appeal and class to the realm of reefer tributes that would make even the most famous 420 enthusiasts, Cab Calloway and Bob Marley proud.
After the (purple?) haze of this dope show clears, make sure you get your tickets for their next event! On July 5th at the Parish on 6th street, these girls are going to bring you to attention with a salute to the troops. Buy tickets early, as this annual event is getting larger every year we don’t want you to miss it!
6th Annual Anti-Valentine's Day Show
The sold out, standing room only audience fell in love with the Bat City Bombshells at their 6th annual Anti-Valentines Day Show. The show opened with Burlesque “EXPRESS” and closed with “FREAK”....it was EXPRESSIVE and FREAKY the whole way through.
From the lovely “Fanny” of Kitty Sangria and the sugary confection named Holli Pop, the girls rocked their stuff. Nina Josephine and Lizzy Kosmos brought the sexy. Pixie Stick showed us how to keep cozy and warm during “Sweater Weather” Miss Sherry Bomb strutted like the beautiful Peacock that she embodies.
The show included the debut of newbies, Sugar Louise as “Sweet Georgia Brown” and J Bird in a duet with Hollipop “Jailhouse Rock”. New ensemble numbers included Express, Jailhouse Rock and Take Back Your Mink, sung by resident songbird, Sherry Bomb. The opening band, Chico Chico, warmed up the crowd at The Speakeasy on Congress and then the temperature continued to rise to become the hottest show in town. Everyone left the feeling the Burly Q love of the Bat City Bombshells on Valentines Day!

Oklahoma Burlesque Fest 2013
The BCB girls were twirling wild with our neighbors to the North for their first ever Oklahoma City Burlesque Festival!
Dolce Dream, Lilly White, and Strawberry Tart brought Dope Show for the Friday Night Showcase. They got to share the stage that night with some of the most dazzling performers including Dangrrr Doll, Adele Wolfe, Goldie Candella, Lula-Houp Garou, and Ruby Joule.
More than just an opportunity to perform, it was a chance to become better friends with our fellow performers across the state. No doubt they caused much of the ruckus in a crowd full of burlesque virgins. Until next year that is...

Texas Burlesque Fest 2013
The Bombshells rocked all three nights of this year's Texas Burlesque Festival. Thursday night debuted Sherry Bomb's newest explosive routine, Madness, and was runner up for audience favorite!
Friday night was our Dope Show trio, Dolce Dream, Lilly White and Strawberry Tart, what a ring master Dolce is! We brought all our silliness on Saturday's Showcase, paying homage to the longest
running cartoon on TV, "The Simpsons" (we put the "spring" back in Springfield) ;-D
As Always, Texas Burlsque Fest brought in amazing talent from all over the country and beyond. The Bombshells melted for the Stage Door Jhonnies (boy-lesque? You mean "man"-lesque! Oh my lordy are they amazing!). Remi Martini (Sherry Bomb's personal idol) was head-to-toe amazing, everything you would expect from such a burlesque powerhouse, and Imogen Kelly visited all the way from Australia, what mezmorizing routines! Texas Burlesque Festival always has the #1 spot in these Bombshell's hearts, we are already excited and thinking about next year!
