The 2nd Annual Asian Burlesque Spectacular

Friday, May 16th

DROM, New York City

The 2nd annual Asian Burlesque Spectacular took place on Friday, May 16th at DROM in New York City, with a star studded line up of Asian burlesque heavyweights including: Sukki Singapora (Singapore), Calamity Chang (NYC), Bunny Pistol (San Francisco), The Shanghi Pearl (Seattle), Orchid Mei (Denver), Cherry Typhoon (Tokyo/Montreal), Wrong Note Rusty (Toronto CA), Miyuki Divine (Calgary, CA), DiLovely (San Diego), Cheeky Lane (NYC) and Violet Eva (Japan). And Hosted by NYC’s very own glamourous drag extraordinaire, Yuhua Hamasaki & DJ Momotaro on the decks.  Dakota Sin and Varla Velour deftly handled the evening’s raffle.

And for a special treat, the producers entertained the audience  with an interlude of Asian Jeopardy, with Calamity Chang hosting and Jen Gapay and Sukki Singapora vying for the correct answers with burlesque regular Noah Singman.

Enjoy this colorful collection of photos from the evening.
