Theater: Go West! 

Sat., Aug. 2

This is what Blast-Off Burlesque co-founder Sadie Hawkins promised for the troupe's GO WEST! show Sat., AUG. 2: "Bar fights, lassos and hula hoops; Mae West; cancan dancing; crazy old prospectors; barnyard animals; and aliens. We can't forget the aliens." What the bejesus? That's what fans come to expect from Blast-Off, which is definitely not your typical T&A or even bump-and-grind burlesque troupe – more Monty Python than Pussycat Dolls. (This is, after all, the troupe that boasts drag king Dickie van Dyke, whose act is beyond words.) The Western-themed show, the second in its Sci-Fi A-Go-Go series, will feature special guest appearances from the Syrens of the South, Renea' Le Roux (formerly of Big City Burlesque), Hoopsie Daisy and Naughtalie. It will also premiere a short film, "Westward Ho" (the joke is almost too easy). $10. 10 p.m. Alcove Gallery, 2852 E. College Ave. 404-663-0159. www.blastoffburlesque.com.
