It’s that time again – #TBT
Today it the turn of the dark and naughty Empress Erotique. This was held in a new venue to me at the Royal Melbourne Hotel. It was really interesting exposed brick and looked to be reminiscent of the Old Melbourne Gaol, with little alcoves and iron bars. Of course the setting fit perfectly with the theme of the evening and lots of candles added to the ambience on a chilly Melbourne night.
Empress Erotique includes a lot of the darker, slightly more fetish burlesque acts and it was great to see some performers really embrace it. MC Mama definitely got the night off to a great start and warmed up the crowd ready for an awesome show.
