Syrens of the South is at it again with bringing you the most amazing performers from all over the world to Atlanta, GA! This time we're pleased to team up with New York's Bunny Love and RunAround Sue as part of their Southern Exposure Tour!

International performers and burlesque darlings of NYC, Bunny Love and RunAround Sue are missing their southern roots. With a few costumes, a handful of pasties, a bit of glitter, two guitars and a uke these two burlqy babes are hitting the road and joining forces with the Souths' most sizzling shows to spread the burlesque love.

Bunny Love grew up in the sultry city of New Orleans with bourbon in her baby bottle and bump n' grind music in her head. As a young girl she heard the call of the stage and she answered, making her way to New York City to study theater and dance. In New York she experienced the gambit from classical theater to the avant garde, until finally discovering that what she really likes best is creating her own works for theater, film and nightclubs. (www.bunnyloveburlesque.com)

Often called "The Moving Violation" and "The Make it Happen Girl", RunAround Sue currently produces and performs regularly in NYC, Brooklyn, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Washington DC. She has had the honor of performing at the New York Burlesque Festival, Slipper Room, Starshine Burlesque, Sweet and Nasty Burlesque, and many other enchanting venues on both coasts and on both sides of the Mason Dixon line. (www.sugarshackburlesque.com)

Burlesque is the art of the striptease, with a focus on the tease. The performers occasionally strip to pasties, but there is no nudity in any of our productions. This show is a revival of an American art form that has become an international movement.

These ladis are hitting the road and bringing their signature acts to stages throughout the country for a three-week tour that takes them from the Midwest through the South and up the Eastern Seaboard including Atlanta, GA, on Halloween!

The Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque On the Go-Go Fall Tour will be the follow-up to their incredibly successful 2010 coast-to-coast, 23-city Spring Tour including Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, Madison, Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Kansas City, Albuquerque, and Richmond. Dangerous Curves Ahead packed houses across the country and received oodles of critical acclaim: The Nashville Scene said "It’s a veritable aureole speedwagon as the Outer Boroughs’ most buxom babes go from zero to 38D on their road trip across America!" and the Phoenix New Times called the show, "An excellent night of twirling tassels and bawdy jokes."

Dangerous Curves Ahead showcases a group of the hottest and most innovative performers in the international burlesque scene. These burlesque starlets have rocked and shocked stages from London to Vancouver to Key West and are multiple award-winners at the annual Burlesque Hall of Fame Pageant in Las Vegas. Along with selling out venues across the US, they have produced standing-room only shows in New York City on stages ranging from Off-Broadway theaters to the trendiest clubs.
