Frankly Frankie Burlesque is fearless.

Last year, Frankly Frankie was one of several plaintiffs that won a legal battle against the Alcohol Beverage Control division of the Idaho State Police over a state law that stipulates no wine, beer or hard alcohol may be sold in conjunction with sexually explicit live performances.

To celebrate its first show after settling with ISP, the local burlesque promoter brought to town internationally recognized performer Armitage Shanks, a.k.a. David Crellin, for a special show at the Visual Arts Collective lambasting censorship.

Next week, the local burlesque promoter will return to the VAC on Saturday, Nov. 18, with another special guest—the Bristol, U.K.-based "Demon Queen of Sleaze," DisCharge. The performers will explore people's deepest fears in DisCharge After Dark, a revelry in "all things disgustingly delightful, deliriously deviant, distasteful and disturbing."

The night will get freaky when the performers delve into terrors, phobias, sacrilege and all things creepy and kinky, with a bevy of stars including Frankly Frankie, Stella Sinn, Juniper Rose, Big Gay Paycen and many more hitting the stage.

The one-night-only show gets started at 8 p.m., and tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. This is a burlesque for folks ages 21 and over, so bring your ID.
