Club Noir's Valetines masked ball
So its Valentines time again. The one day of the year when doing something romantic for your loved one loses a lot of its sheen by societies expectation that it should happen, somewhat negating the point of the whole day.
As we pointed out previously Glasgow claims to have good reason to celebrate the death of a Christian Martyr with part of his remains residing in the Gorbals so how should we all mark the day.
Lots of restaurants are putting on special meal deals all weekend and if you feel like braving the North the GFT is showing Casablanca on the 14th which is fantastic on the big screen.
But what if you don't want to go with the normal flow, what if you want to try something a little bit different this Valetines? Then how about Club Noir at the O2 this Saturday night? Its one of the oldest modern Burlesque groups in the UK and their website claims, the biggest in the world.
As they say:
"An unrivalled Valentine's dream world at our lavish Masked Ball.Two burlesque shows of romance and love, in its many and twisted forms. Reliving erotic and flirtatious acts from our passionate past. Plus 6 new acts orchestrated for this night."
I don't really know the burlesque world, only once having seen a show when in New York but from the line up and videos on the Club Noir website it looks like it will be a really unusual, energy packed and memerable night. The evening will involve DJs, burlesque shows, live music, a chill out love bar and the acts will include Gold Digger, Ernie, the Fastest Milkman in the West, Dear Mr Gable, In Love Again, Lou Hickey and the Phantom of the Burlesque Club.O2 Academy,
121 Eglinton Street Glasgow,
Please note Club Noir is on Saturday the12th not the 14th. Don't want peopel turning up on the Monady night ready for some burlesque to find the Kerrang! Relentless Energy Drink Tour show which is prob as far away from a traditional Valentine's Evening as you can get.
PS - Dress Code is strickly dress up only, no jeans of trainers.
