Some things that go bump in the night can't be explained. The others can be found at the Visual Arts Collective, which will host the Red Light Variety Show starting Friday, Sept. 13. Start Halloween season off right with ghosts and vamps, as RLVS presents Things That Go Bump—complete with burlesque, boylesque, dance, aerial acrobatics, pole dancing and comedy. It's a mix of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Something Wicked This Way Comes. The Visual Arts Collective hosts this annual burlesque expose with performers from around the City of Trees. The Red Light Variety Show started in 2008, bringing creative performance pieces to the stage. Tickets are nearly sold out, according to the Red Light Variety Show's Facebook page. There are additional performances Sept. 20-21 and Sept. 27-28. This is a 21 and over performance.
