Burlesque & metal.
"Horror, humor, harlequins and heavy metal.'' Well, then. Somebody knows how to get our attention! A night of well-performed burlesque -- such as the Carnal Carnival Burlesque Show promises -- is always an entertaining diversion, and a night of heavy metal is ... well, pretty much a night out in Worcester. This is, after all, a heavy metal sort of town. But mixing the two is an intriguing prospect, and with a couple of great bands such as Triforium Dawn, Lore and Sever the Drama in the mix, this looks like a highly entertaining evening. The Carnal Carnival Burlesque Show performs at 8:30 p.m. April 18 at The Lucky Dog Music Hall, 89 Green St., Worcester. (508) 363-1888. (Victor D. Infante)
