Stunning Selections at the September Matinee

The house was packed, the lights were dimmed, the DJ warmed up his mic setting the stage for yet another action packed Matinee at Elysium Cabaret. SL seemed to play nice as the afternoon kicked off, leaving most in peace to enjoy the smorgasbord of dance presented by the talented choreographers. Without further ado, here comes the review for the first Fall matinee.

Eva
Sound of Silence by Epic Rock

The first to grace our stage was the beautiful Eva with her routine stunning the audience with a simple, changing backdrop that made use of highly effective graphics to accompany the bittersweet melody. Joining Eva were Misha Selene, Nadi, Tauriel, Cowgrl, Si De Brit and Zach Starostin who danced their way through several astounding astounding costume changes, leaving even myself wondering how she did it. A breathtaking routine for not only the use of choeography, sets and costuming but -more importantly- for the message she portrayed.

Jilley
Physical by Olivia Newton-John

In every show there is always someone hollering out for the hunky men doing their thing on stage. Today, Jilley had the audience bellowing entirely different things as she set the over-padded Paul and Andy to work on those dastardly treadmills. Showing off her svelte figure in a tight workout wear, the talented lady put them through their paces with sit ups and push ups until the boys dropped all their excess pounds. The word was restored to its natural order, with hunky men back in their rightful place in this fun fitness number.

Arabella
White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane

The opening of the next act was extremely creative with Arabella taking us straight down the rabbit hole. This quirky song was embodied by an equally off kilter set inspired by Alice in Wonderland. There was even a disappearing Cheshire cat! Aspen Wrigglesworth, Halfpint Raymaker, Imrhien Porthos, Fukuju Amaterasu and Keesha Lenroy were the lovely ladies joining the cute little white rabbit. She was definitely not late for any important date with her split-sequenced choreography, showcasing her talents to perfection.

Diddy – Kittens ‘n’ Tigers
Umbrella by Casey Abrams

The moment this talented group began tapping their way about, all I could say over and over to anyone who would listen was how fabulous the mover work was. Choreographer Diddy should get serious props for his smooth movements and clever combinations that would have put any Broadway professional to shame. Joining him was Bubble Roffo, Mandy Oconnell, TanyaSmart, Rayzza Rubble and Andytez Dumpling in snappy suits and clear raincoats. Umbrellas never got in the way, held steady regardless of the animation on this blue-hued stage. A fun routine that proved any show with a good dance break and tap shoes will always be a crowd pleaser.

Shayna
Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine

The moment the curtain opened, we were transported to another galaxy filled with shooting stars and brightly hued clouds. Oodles joined the lovely Shayna for her beautiful creation which blended particle effects, lighted costumes and seamless choreography. Two lovers started apart, separated by the yawning depths of outer-space. Soon not even that proved enough to keep them from one another, as they melted into one another’s arms to complete their journey with intricate couples animations.

Wiz
Evolution Mix by Wiz

This was just fun fun fun! In his usual unique and creative way, Wiz too us all on a journey through the evolution of dance. I could list all the songs but I am not sure my memory is up to the task and I truly applaud his collection of famous dances. Suffice it to say there was jumping, jiving, horse riding, pelvic grinds, bad romances to name but a few. I don’t know about anyone else, but I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see which song would make an appearance next and just barely refrained from doing the iconic steps right along with him!

Klark Harvy
Mash: Superman/Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake

Klark Harvy. The name itself is enough to let anyone know they will be in for a treat of lighting and particle wonders. Featuring Si De Brit, Zach, Diamonte Tomas and Sendar, this lineup of limber men in their white suits danced their night away beneath multi-color laser lights mirrored by wall panels. Smooth transitions and orginal animation selection reigned supreme in this fun and lighthearted routine. I hope he doesn’t kill me for saying this, but one of the real highlights of this performance for me was the pre-show. Using particles and effects perfectly timed to dramatic music, Klark managed to create performance art that held a real ‘Wow’ factor … and this was before the curtain even rose on his routine!

Maia Von Phoenix
Push It by Salt-N-Pepa

Yo yo yo yo, Maia was in the house today, or should I say supermarket filled with less than desirable clientele portrayed by Seb, Ayita, Jo, Paul and Max. One of the funnest parts of this were the two guys misbehaving with a trolley, rolling up and down the store appearing to cart-surf. This didn’t phase the girls, or the check out chick -err guy- who kept up their hip hop moves which matched the music perfectly. Hopefully no damage was done, or displays sent toppling to the ground, in the making of this number.

Babypea Von Phoenix
Cover Girl (Put The Bass In Your Walk) by RuPaul

So my SL had died on me by this point, so a few creatures were missing in the video. Luckily, Fuku and Oodles saved the day by also providing some pictures of this unconventional fashion parade. Pea headed this lineup of beauty queens of Jilley, Mona, Kyshra, Fuki, Amy and Immy in this  left of the center routine. The costumes were awesomely cool and unique, had me peering closer to work out exactly what these things were. They boogied their way up, down, backwards, forwards, across and back the changing stage like the true models they were leaving the audience in fits of giggles as we often are after a peek into the squishy Pea’s mind.

That was it for this month’s matinee, but we all know that the fun never stops for long at Elysium Cabaret. These guys and many more of your favorite choreographers will be back on Friday, September 30 at 6pm SLT with all new creations for your eyes to feast upon. Of course, please also join us for our next matinee on Saturday, October 29 at 1pm SLT.

Elysium Review September 23, 2016 – Celebration in Elysium

Celebration. It’s the soul of dance. The spirit speaks through the magic of flesh in motion. Imagination flowers from the human form and transforms the stage. Just as the mind must dream, the body must dance.

Last night, the angels of Elysium Cabaret blessed The Empire Room with a celebration of celebration itself – a chronicle of festivity, devotion and downright good times throughout the ages. Our hosts with the most, Paul Woodrunner and Jilley, welcomed all with warmth and kept those good times pumping. DJ and MC Gunner von Phoenix‘s voice rose from the ashes to blaze our way through the outstanding onstage acts. And Elysium burned with a gala of grace that only it can devise.

Act One: Kyshra with Jo, Fukuju, Cowgrl Crystal, Sorcha, Nadi and Queenie – Ladies Come First – Hinder

elysium-23sep16-kyshra

Elysium started off with a celebration of where we all began – the flesh of a woman. Kyshra steamed the stage with an erotic display like no other: Girls strapped in the tightest of fabric, grinding, arching, pumping in a climax of carnal motion. It was raw. It was hot. It was the kind of dance you could smell in the air. And it left the audience on the brink of bursting, eager for what came next.

Act Two: Goddess Shayna with Oodlemi – This is How We Do – Katy Perry

elysium-23sep16-shayna

The next act arrived in a sports car, as Goddess Shanya cruised onstage on the hood of a car driven by Oodlemi and took off – literally! The car soared into the air, over the audience, and led them on a voyage through one hell of a night out. The setting switched seamlessly, from a desert road to a road house, to a park and ride where the couple got down together, all the way to Shayna strutting home with heels in hand and hair mussed. Shayna turned dance into cinema itself, guiding their eye in fifth gear through the very vision of a damn good date night!

Act Three: Jo with Fukuju, Baby, Seb, Gunner and Melvis – Clap Your Hands – Parov Stelar

elysium-23sep16-jo

Jo‘s dance set reminds us that celebration isn’t just for the era of karaoke and krunk dancing, taking us back to the Roaring 20s for a classic routine of color-coordinated celebration. Embraced by the gilded arms of an opulent club, dancers clad in crimson and platinum spun, shucked and jived to a remix of a timeless tune. The dawn of modern dance shone bright as a golden cage while flappers and their beaus reminded us that even in an age of uniformity, people have found a way to cut loose!

Act Four: Nadi with Ray Lobo, Krysta Lobo, Zach Starostin and Fukuju Amaterasu – Dance Again – Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull

elysium-23sep16-nadi

A tour through the history of dance and celebration wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the club. That’s where Nadi brought us – under the swing of colored lights, dancers got down on a floor that flared and shimmered with neon patterns. With ecstatic movement and free spirited fun, she showed us why millions dance again – and again and again – every night in the club scene!

Act Five: Wiz – Evolution – Wiz Mix

elysium-23sep16-wiz

The endless cycle of discovering new ways to celebrate dance and song took us to the digital cradle of our modern, mobile video age, with Wiz Nirvana‘s dedication to YouTube smash hit, the Evolution of Dance. Set in a perfect construction of an embedded video player, the Wiz danced through the styles and steps of every chart-topping dance sensation that sent YouTube view counts through the roof! The artistry and action was worth nine-digit hits for sure, with Wiz’s mix of trending tunes truly captivating the crowd in its homage to an age of split-second attention spans and in-stream superstars!

Act Six: Melvis with Arabella, Mona, Jo, Seb and Andy – Final Song – MØ

elysium-23sep16-melvis

Heavenly. There’s no other word that does Melvis Baum‘s performance justice. The stage opened on a fantasy landscape where angels danced among temple columns and shooting stars. As the music urged us to “not lot this be our final song,” the dancers took to the clouds, frolicking and flying in a celestial paradise. It was an ode to the angelic origin of dance – the spirit – featuring a symphony of special effects and exquisite attention to every heaven-sent detail.

Act Seven: Jilley with Paul – Maria – Ricky Martin

elysium-23sep16-jilley

 

Jilley‘s act brought us to a Spanish-style villa, where Ricky Martin’s hit song was soundtrack of a romantic interplay between the dancers. The story of a south-of-the-border love played out with dazzling steps and a stunning set. Latin passion and lusty dance moves displayed the celebration that beats at the heart of every true romance!

Act Eight: Corri – Dragonfly – Mahogany Rush

elysium-23sep16-corri

One of dance’s greatest powers is to empower the imagination to take wing, as Corri‘s dance, featuring a dragonfly girl dancing in sync with a princely frog, displayed to us. With a vision straight from a fable, Corri’s dancers set a lively beat surrounded by lily pads and Spanish moss. A fairy tale frolic brought to life, it celebrated the magical qualities of dance.

Act Nine: Babypea with Gunner and VooDoo – Walk Like an Egyptian – The Bangles

elysium-23sep16-babypea

Babypea brought us all the way back to the dawn of civilization’s dance styles with a classic 80s tune set in the antique world – ancient Egypt! Shimmying and sliding in the geometric style of the West’s first great empire, Baby toured the audience through a cyclopean temple, a royal Nile barge and a stream of endless hieroglyphs. With imagery torn from the Book of the Dead, Baby brought us a vivid reminder that we’re but the latest symbols in a long series of dances that stretches back to humanity’s first steps.

Act Ten: Crowd Dance by Eva – Footloose, Bohemian Rhapsody, Say a Little Prayer

elysium-23sep16-crowdeva

A night dedicated to the celebratory power of dance wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the movies! Eva packed the stage with popcorn, the crowd piled on, and all danced together to some of the greatest songs from moving pictures! Cutting footloose together – as Paul Woodrunner reminded everyone that an Elysium dancer is alive in every SecondLife avatar – brought the evening’s act to a fitting close by making everyone a celebrity!

Putting this into practice, Andy was inspired to create a video of tonight’s events. Giving wings to the imagination is what it’s all about, and we couldn’t be more thankful for his gorgeous cinematography. It’s not to be missed – be sure to view it here!

Super stars in the same onstage constellation – that’s what Elysium is all about! And this night was about how dance can a voice to even the meekest among us. Whether its about warm bodies shining together in the darkness, fantastical fables or getting funky at a roadhouse karaoke stage, there’s a dream within us all. Dance brings it to life!

Many thanks to Fukuju Amaterasu for the photos that immortalized this unforgettable evening.

And, starting Wednesday, we celebrate individual choreographers and dancers with the upcoming interview series – Interview with an Elysian! 

Elysium Review September 16, 2016 – Wild Animals, Wild Times & Wonders of the World

A real menagerie of passion, swank and raw sexuality took the stage tonight at the Empire Room. Aliens and animals, bad dates and big apes, cantina clashes and downtown raunch – every aspect of the wild side of desire was on show. As the voice of Elysium, Gunner von Phoenix, growled over the microphone and Paul Woodrunner barked happy greetings to a packed house, the dance troupe put on a revue that really howled!

Act 1: Jilley with Baby and Mona – Jumpin’ Jack – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

elysium-16sep16-jilley
The first act took us to a quirky cafe in a galaxy far, far away, with Jilly introducing us to Sy Snoodles’ three missing sisters. These alien divas got down in a way that would make a Wookie blush, all while quarreling amongst themselves. In this performance rife with imagination, Jilley displayed that personality can bring a new dimension of excitement to the stage.

Act 2: JenzZa – Misfit Dance & Performance Art with Dulcikate Noel, Judd Eldridge, Rumour Bashir and Kaeylan Resident – DayBreak Custom Music Mix

elysium-16sep16-guestmisfit
The second act plunged us into the verdant heart of another world – the circle of life within the African jungle. Choreographer Jenzza summoned an entire jungle that overflowed the stage and reached the ceiling with its green canopies. An entire retinue of flora and fauna, from majestic elephants to a delicate bluebird, danced about a tribal mystic, in this display of the natural world’s glory.

Act 3: Sebastain with  Jo, Fukuju, Lily and BabyPea- Just a Gigolo – David Lee Roth 

elysium-16sep16-sebastain
The rock and roll universe was the subject of the next act – a hard rock revel that had the stage thumping with energy. It brought to life some decades of excess – the loud colors of the 70s and the loud music of the 80s – and choreographer Sebastain brought serious noise and swank to the Empire Room! It was a classic rock ode to the animal side of human appetite and the era it howled at the top of its lungs.

Act 4: Ayita with Babypea, Jo, Nalani, JJ, Kymird and Sorcha – Ooh Ahh I Lost My Bra

elysium-16sep16- - Naybabe
The fourth act brought sexy back, with a wild journey through a date gone wrong – or really, really right. Ayita presented the skin-tingling story of Ooh Ahh I Lost My Bra in glorious technicolor and cartoon design. This randy romp featured a chorus of dancers that took us on a tale through fly-by-night romance, featuring fast cars, missing lingerie and even the Eiffel tower!

Act 5:  Gunner with Babypea, Sebastain and Paul –  Come a Little Bit Closer – Marty Robbins

elysium-16sep16-gunner
Things only got hotter in the fifth act, as the audience swung south of the border for a traditional latin dance, set to live guitar music! The place was a cantina, the subject was a group of lovers, and the strident chord of the song kept the whole performance simmering hot from start to finish. Love even became a battlefield with a surprise flight through a window and captions provided by one of Elysium’s wildest imaginations – Gunner von Phoenix!

Act 6: Diawa – Catch My Breath – Kelly Clarkson

elysium-16sep16 - Diawa
The dazzling sixth act featured Diawa in a solo act with fantastic costuming and dreamy imagery all around. With graceful motion and passionate action, she kept the audience on the edge of their seats through this pulse-pounding performance. It wasn’t until the act spun to its climax, could the audience catch their breath!

Act 7: Babypea – King Kong – DeStorm Power 
elysium-16sep16-baby

In the seventh act, Babypea Von Phoenix went big – real big – featuring an entire cityscape centered around the Eighth Wonder of the World himself – or rather herself, Queen Kong!  As the great ape danced atop the Empire State Building, planes arrived to take her down. But nothing could harm the majesty of this ode to bravado, boldness and seizing your moment on top of the world.

Act 8: Corri with Gemma Paw – Bad Girls –  Donna Summer

elysium-16sep16 - Corri
After every highest climb, there comes a deep dive, and Corri took us downtown in a hardcore way with Donna Summer’s Bad Girls. This dance ground it nasty in a wicked part of town, with wild gyrations set against a sleazy snakepit of a city street. Things have never been hot in the gutter, as sensuality shone from the back alleys of this brilliant vision of urban decay.

Act 9: Kyshra – Group Dance

snapshot_015-crowdkyshra
As the audience piled onto the stage to enjoy a crowd dance, the raw attitude of the evening was in full effect. Kyshra‘s dances guided this packed house in pushing it good and hard, with deep grinding, bootie bouncing and sensuous spins. It was a smoldering conclusion to one of the hottest nights at Elysium this year.
The 16th of September was the evening when Elysium let its carnal side loose. From vivid depictions of love gone wrong, to raw nights on the mean streets, and even the Queen of Beasts rising above it all, the show had the crowd roaring. Captured by the camera of Fukuju Amaterasu, this fiery spectacle had to be seen – and felt – to be believed!

Elysium’s Time, Silence and Schism – 9/9/16

On Friday, September 9, 2016, Elysium used the dance floor to explore the landscape of the human mind and spirit. The glory of dance became a journey through ideal and isolation, agony and mortality, ecstasy and frivolity. From the fun-loving to the heart-rending, this performance toured the spectrum of experience, ending with a dance where – as in the global community known as Second Life – we all joined hands. Paul Woodrunner kept everyone in line as the house host. Gunner Von Phoenix kept us in harmony as emcee on the microphone. The artists carried us away, playing tunes set to the rhythm of the heart and mind.

Act One: Tray with Imrhien- ‘Write On Me’ – Fifth Harmony

The audience was drawn into the evening’s opening act – literally – as Tray used the latest in SL camera direction technology to guide the audience into a performance that appeared to be the interior of a living pencil sketch. The simple story was one of the most timeless – the meeting of two lovers, their dance and their romantic embrace. It was a sweeping journey that reminded us how some of the most powerful tales are those told simply.

Act Two:  Eva with Ally Romani, Misha Selene, nadi, Tauriel, Si De Brit and Zach Starostin – “Sound of Silence” – J2 ft. Johnny & Justin Coppolino

elysium-07sep16-eva

As the idyllic image of two lovers entwined in fantasy faded, darkness and solitude opened the second act – Eva’s rendition of Sound of Silence. Beginning with a tragic dancer sealed in a room with a single point of evening light through a window, the dance soon featured the shattering of the backdrop into abstract imagery and stark statements. Other dancers joined her on the stage, clad in costumes that shifted color in uniformity, suggesting the deep silence we’re all isolated in – the loneliness we share together.

Act Three: Oodlemi – “Schism” – Tool

elysium-07sep16-oodlemi

After the silence came the shattering, as Oodlemi stood solo on the stage before a scarlet backdrop, and Tool’s Schism was set to the eerie shifting of a shattered image that floated about the entire stage. As the song built, the pieces began to fit, only to resolve into an image of a rent heart clutched by a desperate hand. Attired in standard dystopian Tool style, Oodlemi danced his way through the agony of inner torment with motions that built in frenzy to the final stunning climax of over 750 object movements – a captivating solo act accompanied by cutting-edge special effects genius.

Act Four: DavidGage with Corri, Nadi, Sammy, Sebastain and Melvis – “Surfin USA” – The Beach Boys

elysium-10sep16-davidgage

As in life, all tides must turn, and Act Three’s lachrymose tone gave way to the lighthearted performance of Act Four – David Gage’s seaside revue of vintage 50s dances, set to Surfin’ USA. Splashed by a beachside backdrop, Gage’s work featured bikini bunnies and big kahunas wearing leis – and a rooster, Rex, sporting a bathing suit as he sung on a surfboard behind the dancers. It was a reminder that time heals all wounds – and laughter is often the best medicine, so long as you hang loose!

Act Five: BabyPea with MarissaJaine, Diawa and Wild – “Time” – Alan Parsons Project

elysium-10sep16-babypea

The tides of time were the subject of the next dance – a surreal soak in the entire course of a human life. Babypea’s set evoked memories of Dali’s ‘Persistence of Time’, with liquid imagery within a translucent lagoon, populated by bouncing clocks and swirling stars. The true spectacle lived at center stage – a succession of dancers portraying a woman at the many phases of her life, blended seamlessly in a dance that shifted her from the exuberance of youth to the ethereal sway of elder years. The performance was more than just dance – it was an artistic devotion to the transcience and transformation of time that carries us all through our lives.

Act Six: Anu Papp of the Muse Dance Team with Star, Tauriel, Dawn Core, Joy Canadeo, Rosewan, Cowgrl Crystal and ‘DJ’ Ferdinand Scarmon – “How Deep is Your Love” – Calvin Harris & Disciples

elysium-07sep16-guestmuse

Guest dancer Anu and her Muse Dance Team graced the Empire Room stage with a performance of How Deep is Your Love that had the whole house pumping. Pulsing with light, action and sensuality, this display of a classic club song in a spot-on club setting was a stunning spectacle courtesy of our visitors.

Act Seven: Kyshra – “Dirty Diana” – Shaman’s Harvest

elysium-10sep16-kyshra

Kyshra’s Dirty Diana was an ode to the baser and more beautiful aspects of the human experience – a goddess-like figure moving in primeval ways, dressed in fantastical garb. It was a reminder that beauty and dream can co-exist in the material world, and that life can be epic if we just dream it to be so.

Act Eight: Jilley with Paul, Zach, Mona, Ame, Baby and Jo – “You Raise Me Up” – Josh Groban

elysium-10sep16-jilley

Heads lowered and spirits were raised as Jilley presented an homage to those lost on the show’s anniversary, the 9-11 tragedy. First responders, unsung heroes and innocents alike were celebrated in a tableau set against a somber black background and lit by an angelic figure bearing a torch. This hellish event had a truly heavenly commemoration thanks to the vision of Jilley and the combined talents of many of Elysium’s finest contributors.

Silence and souls, surfing and schism, this Elysium plunge into the philosophy of what it is to be human moved the hearts of the crowd. Standing ovations abounded and revolutionary special effects left the audience floored. The show hit its high-spirited climax as the onlookers joined the artists in a revue animated by group dances courtesy of Ame. A packed house shook the stage together, bringing one of the most awe-inspiring Elysium shows to an awesome close.

One Enchanted Evening at Sweetwater's Magic Moments2

Elysium Review – 9/2/16

Another Friday at the Empire Room!  Last Friday began as they all do with Gunner playing some great tunes and Paul and Jilley looking fine and getting everyone welcomed and settled.  I think Gunner and Paul lost track of who was picking up the tab so it may have ended up being Jilley or Babypea.  Either way, the crowd was jumping and we were hyperventilating in the back as show time finally arrived.

Jilley with Paul and Andy – “Physical” – Olivia Newton John

Jilley started us off with a terrific dance.  It was high-powered and energetic.  It was so energetic, she started with a very out of shape Paul and Andy and whipped them right into shape by the end of the dance.  I would have felt sorry for them if they didn’t have Jilley to look at and try and impress.  Excellent choreo and great job putting them through their paces.

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Jilley

Goddess Shayna with Oodlemi, Fukuju Amaterasu, JMB Balogh, Joy Canadeo and Nicholas Mougin – “Prisoner of Love – Borg edit”

Next up we had Shayna’s styling of a dance by the Borg…well, if they danced.  Set in a Borg ship with flashing pics of the Next Generation Star Trek series, every Star Trek fan in the room was seriously geeked out.  With a variety of dance styles, the choreography was uniquely her own.

Babypea with Jilley, Mona, Kyshra, Fuki, Ame and Immy – “Cover Girl (Put The Bass In Your Walk)” – RuPAUL 

The 3rd dance was probably the most fun I’ve had in a dance in a while.  Dressed as mollusks, Babypea and crew strutted the runway like we owned it.  The sets and footwork made this a creative and unexpected dance in typical Babypea style.  Who’d have though anyone could make a mollusk sexy.  *grins*

Elysium - 02SEP16 - BabyPea

Diddy Hyun – Kittens N Tigers DANCE TEAM with Bubble Roffo, Mandy Oconnell, TanyaSmart, Andytez Dumpling and Rayzza Rubble – “Little Less Conversation” – Elvis Presley

The next act of the night featured our guests, the Kittens N Tigers Dance Team.  They brought a great dance with a very colorful set.  Their interpretation of the song was spot on and there was sexiness galore gyrating on that stage.  We love our guests and what they bring to us every week and this was certainly no exception.  Thank you!

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Guest(Kittens n Tigers

Nadi with Ame, Zach, Ray and Fuki – “I’m Alive” – Céline Dion

The fifth dancer of the evening was Nadi.  We don’t see her as often as we’d like but when we do, she always has a great dance.  Set in a Spanish courtyard, we samba-ed and salsa-ed our way through the courtyard while Nadi added her own moves and flair in the center.  Everything about this dance was awesome.

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Nadi

Asali with Baby, JMB, Nea and Renee – “The Way You Move” – Outkast

Asali was up next as a referee with her team on the football field as the temperature raised in the room at least 30 degrees with their skimpy outfits.  They demonstrated their flexibility and stamina going through the choreography with skilled acrobatics through out.  It was good to see Asali again after a long absence.

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Asali

Ame with Zach and Ray – Descent – “VNV Nation”

The final dance of the night was a dance we’d just done for the Lovecraft festival featuring Evil Alien Queens.  The boys were my “guests” and believed they were going to be mated with…well up until I got hungry.  They then realized their fate was sealed and were going to be my dinner.  *evilly grins*

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Ame

Jilley – Crowd Dances – Atomic Kitten – “The Tide Is High” – Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake – “Love Never Felt So Good” – DNCE – “Cake By The Ocean”

Finishing off another great night of entertainment was the lovely Jilley treated us to a trio of great dances for the audience to come up and join us.

Elysium - 02SEP16 - Crowd(Jilley)

We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did.  We look forward to seeing you next week – same time, same bat channel.  That’s Friday nights at 6pm at the hottest ticket on the grid, the Empire Room!
