Yesterday I went to a Dr.Sketchy's evening with my friends K and P. Dr. Sketchy's is described as "anti art school". It's a concept/movement that started in the USA a couple of years ago but can now be found in citites all over the world, described as when art school meets cabaret.
I've been to a couple (they're organized about 4-5 times a year over here) and last night was a warm up for this weekend's Burlesque Festival, with one of the performers modelling. We had some red wine and cigarettes (ehrm, I guess that's nothing new for me) and did some sketches and watched old burlesque clips. The DJ played ironwire guitar music (yes yes yes!) and other oldies. I like it a lot!
