Deviled Legs

Ever since Gypsy Rose Lee slid off her first satin glove in the 1930s, audiences have gone wild for burlesque -- so much so that, over seventy years later, cities are still rife with sexy dancers steaming up the stage with their mere presence.

Inspired by the classic art of burlesque, local dance troupe The DeViltry Dolls take it one step further by fusing their stage act with fashion, theatre, and pulse-pounding beats. “We are high energy, visual performance dancers who thrive merely off enhancing the musician behind the atmosphere,” says founder Miss Electro.

The Dolls will break out their fantastical costumes and props and groove to the beats of such bands as Rising Pain, Hell Defined, and When Darkness Falls at the Screwed & Tattooed event at Joe’s Grotto.
