God, Sex & Death Variety Hour

First Wednesday of the month: 7:30 PM

Many a mental health professional advises that if you're really afraid of something, the best thing to do is confront your fear.

Open run: first Sat of each month, 10: 30 PM and midnight

Gothic illusionist and proud floor-length-leather-jacket owner Ron Fitzgerald emcees Arkham Noise Productions' burlesque show, which caters to a wide array of fetishes with an alternating lineup of about 100 performers—around a dozen acts on a given night, curated by producer/DJ Miss Ellie Noise.

Still, nearly every act was a striptease at heart, and followed a familiar trajectory: gloves to girdle to brassiere, and then an exuberant reveal. It felt more silly than sexy, and the only clothes remaining onstage at the end were the basketball jerseys that line the back wall of the bar. —Hannah Gold
