This past summer (which feels like it was ages away, while this summer’s also feeling like it’s ages away), I sat down with C. Amanda Boutahorse to talk about the art of burlesque, how she got into it and where you can find burlesque in Albany.

Since our interview, C. Amanda Boutahorse has put on a handful of events in her series Cult Classics and tonight is hosting a tribute to Kevin Smith’s very first film, Clerks, in celebration of the 20 year anniversary of its release. Tonight’s events will feature acts from Persephone Pomme, Pam Demonium, Brodie Lazzo, Corvina Underwood Nottingham Tate, C. Amanda Boutahorse, William Hughes, Lulu Madly, Baby Dead Girl with GoGo by Noelle Reign. You can find details and RSVP via Facebook and hit the jump to check out a Q+A with a relatively new performer to the world of burlesque, Persephone Pomme!

Earlier today, indie folk/pop duo Oh Honey, was signed to Atlantic Records. Oh Honey is comprised of vocalist and Clifton Park native, Danielle Bouchard, and guitarist/vocalist Mitchy Collins, of NYC. While the duo is currently based out of Brooklyn, we wanted to take a quick minute to say a well-deserved congrats to Danielle and Mitchy.

The duo will be extensively touring in March and hopefully it will align for them to play a hometown show sometime in the near future. Keep an eye out on their website for announcements regarding their forthcoming release on Atlantic. Very much looking forward to what comes next for them!
