Villains and vixens will gather this weekend as Las Vegas-based burlesque troupe Nerdlesque hosts its new show “Nerdlesque! Evil Geniuses: The Ones We Love to Hate” on Saturday night at the Sci-Fi Center.
Nerdlesque’s monthly show casts off typical vintage, feminine burlesque themes in favor of “nerd-inspired” performances tapped from science fiction and fantasy. Saturday night’s show will draw from the likes of “Labyrinth,” “Star Wars” and more for an evening devoted to famous villains.
Los Angeles-based burlesque performers Greta Grenade and Mercury Troy will guest star alongside the troupe’s locals Jeffrey Xerxes Brice, La Rosa Muerta, Precari Ous Lea, Sarah X and host Anita Brassiere.
The show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets.
