A Gastown fixture for four years, Pandora & The Locksmiths is now producing their first independent large-scale show in East Vancouver.  The Black String Quartet has been dubbed “Vancouver’s Hottest String Quartet” and their members have performed and recorded with acts like Kanye West, Mariana’s Trench, Mariah Carey, and 54-40.   Peekaboo Pointe is based in New York City and is an internationally renowned burlesque star and has competed for “Queen of Burlesque” at the New Orleans Burlesque Festival and Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. Awakenings will celebrate the many facets of femininity as inspired by the natural world through glamorous striptease that follows the course of a day from sunrise to midnight. You can expect fierce and beautiful burlesque that unfolds to the lush interpretations of a 10 piece orchestra playing classical, jazz and modern day music.  This is a one night event only taking place at the Rio Theatre on Saturday, June 20th at 8:00 pm.
