    One of my favorite places in Cleveland is the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern I've spent a good part of the last twenty years seeing some of my favorite bands at that venue The Beths Alvvays and Dinosaur Jr among others and have I really been back in Cleveland for twenty years? However I'm certain that it's hard to keep a place like the Beachland afloat for twenty years especially with the way our city government shits all over these guys and so you can't just appeal to the indie rock hipster set you got to diversify So the venue hosts shows I wouldn't really like to see and stuff that isn't musical at all This might explain why in recent years the Beachland Ballroom has hosted a number of burlesue shows I have to admit before cracking the cover of Rust Belt Burlesue The Softer Side of a Heavy Metal Town I really was not familiar of what burlesue was all about I merely know of the scene thanks to the many events listed on the Beachland website and some of the odd themes Star Wars? Really? But if you aren't immersed in it you are likely as ignorant as I was about the Cleveland burlesue scene and the rich history of the artform especially in ClevelandLet's not mistake what this book is it's a coffee table book and perhaps a provocative one given the delicate dance burlesue does with sexuality and sensuality While I personally believe that the supposed straight laced socially conservative folk are actually seething cauldrons of desire waiting to explode Rome wasn't built in a day This book details the journey of burlesue into a performance art that encourages body positivity and celebrates sexuality and gender fluidity at least in Cleveland Burlesue it seems is a celebration of sexuality yes the performances may titillate but there is a mutual admiration her between performer and spectator So while this book is definitely set up to be a coffee table book that will no doubt get people's attention it's a coffee table book with heftI will admit that this book will probably encourage me to check out a burlesue show sometime in the future The women and men and what have you this binary gender shit is for the birds who perform burlesue celebrate who they are through their performances regardless of weight age or body parts They reveal themselves slowly and don't make apologies for who or what they are and that's how the world should be

    It's sometimes hard to know how to rate a book that is something unto itself Should I compare it other books about burlesue in Cleveland Ohio?I don't know much anything about burlesue especially in Cleveland but when I see show announcements at the Beachland I'm find myself bu curious When this book popped up on my radar I grabbed it to get some idea of what's going on there Interesting read; not necessarily my cup of tea I don't think I'm waaaaayyy to uptight for that but it paints a wonderful picture of something worthwhileFive stars for the effort and the fine product decent research a good overview of what's going on that I'm sure has to be seen to be understood fully good pictures and great package altogether
