Friends, there are two big things happening in Jacksonville, FL next week, and I’m not just talking about Ramona Rhapsody’s bazooms above. (That’s right, I said bazooms.)

Professor Whiskey’s Traveling Bizarre Bazaar, Jacksonville’s premier (and only) vaudeville and burlesque troupe, will be performing two free shows on April 17 and 19 as part of One Spark 2013.

Professor Whiskey's Kitty LaRoxOne Spark is an incredible event that’s part SXSW, part ArtPrize, and it takes Kickstarter up a few notches. From April 17th to 21st, it will light up downtown Jacksonville with hundreds of projects on display in over 65 venues, all vying for $250,000 in crowdfunding that will be distributed based on public vote! For everyone in Jacksonville, One Spark is the perfect opportunity to connect, be inspired, and support great work like the Bizarre Bazaar!

Professor Whiskey’s first free show will be an action-packed introduction to the traditional vaudeville they epitomize: combining music, mirth, mayhem, and a little bawdy merriment. The troupe offers their guests the beauty of their burlesque performers, the talent of their various musical guests, the skill and prowess of their own hoopstress, and all presented by their mesmerizing MC.

The second free show is being called “The Nerdlesque Chronicles” and will be their Geek/Nerd/Sci-Fi show. Fans are encouraged to come out in costume, dressed to the 9’s. Stormtroopers, Ghostbusters, Jedi, comic book characters, video game characters, if you can dress as it, they want to see it!

Remember, the One Spark “Creator” number for Professor Whiskey’s Traveling Bizarre Bazaar is #9, and every vote given will be a vote to help bring fringe art and a new cultural center to Jacksonville!
