LipsInc Throws Sweet 16 Bash

Friday-Saturday, June 7-8

by

Turning 16 is a big deal—for most teenage girls, that special little number is cause for a blowout party, an excuse for a more mature (bordering on slinky) new dress and being the center of attention. The lovely ladies of LipsInc are no exception, but when it comes to Idaho's first professional female impersonation troupe hitting sweet 16, you can damn well bet it's going to be a party to remember.

The cake hits the fan for two nights—Friday, June 7-Saturday, June 8—at 8:30 p.m. at Balcony Club. The trio of dazzling dames will be joined by special guest Spyke Naugahyde.

LipSinc's 16th anniversary will feature the bawdy, buxom and burlesque. Though the troupe performs its share of drag-o-grams and parties, this two-day fest makes the most of Balcony's atmosphere: instances of illumination by the party lights and thumping tunes over the public address—not to mention the full bar.

Doors open nightly at 7:30 p.m., and tickets cost $20, but reservations are recommended if you want to be part of this particularly sweet 16. Just make sure you're 21 or older—Balcony is a grown-ups-only sort of place.
