Downtown’s Triple-Header  Valentine’s Weekend

Fetish Masquerade Ball * Friday, February 11

Fast and hard, slow and wet and nasty, the Fetish Masquerade Ball is coming at you Friday, Feb. 11, at the Roseland Theater. Freaks, goth chicks galore and multiple acts strutting their stuff upstairs and down, all presided over by the Mistress of ceremonies, Goddess Severina. Featured bands: Burgundy--"heady, gray-washed trip-hop art rock smothered in the molten velvet voice of B. DeWolf." And the bone tingling sounds of Written In Ashes--sensuous, seductive, nocturnal and now. Headlining will be the dark, subversive sounds of Rorschach Test (discover your underlying personality)--Darkwave/Industrial Thrash meat. Go Go(th) Girls and everyone else will get spun by DJ's Gustav and Drue. And a full throttle Fetish Cabaret, featuring eerie performance artist, Wakeworld, the Fire Goddess and the Human Marionette (heavy gauge needles and human skin--not for the faint of heart). Plus, vendors for days: piercing and tattoo, plus PVC and leather fetish wear, accessories and more of what you've been looking for in the 21st century. Tickets available through Fred Meyer/Fastixx locations.

Last but not least, completing the trifecta of downtown erotic St. Valentine's happenings, this Cabaret and Revue to benefit the Portland Area Privacy Alliance (PAPA) will melt-down Berbati's Pan Sunday, Feb.13. The show kicks off at 9:00PM with DJ Kitty Diggins followed by a fabulous, history of lingerie show featuring 11 (count 'em) delicious erotic performers, including Viva Las Vegas, Stella Go-Lightly and (oh my God!) Gina Velour. Papillon, a Paris Pop 60s band extraordinary, will put the capper on the evening with their ultra cool, swank and sexy sounds. And all this uniquely titillating entertainment is yours for a mere seven bucks ($5 w/ a can of food.) Can't let those strippers go hungry. Or, lose their rights, livelihood, raison d'etre to make you (dear reader) happy so see them naked. Naked. Nude. Lewd. Lingeried in corsets and contraptions and platforms and wigs and gloves and bustiers and stockings and hosiery and.... what about pantyhose. Will there be anyone wearing sheer to waist pantyhosen? Come find out and meet and mingle with Portland's grooviest girls in mega attendance to be sure. And support your/their rights to ogle and be ogled and exchange money for such ogling. OK. Be there!
