Time for a huge ectoplasmic horrorgasm! The Flashback Film Series is back! This fall, every Sunday and TWICE on Mondays at Park Place Cinemas in Charleston, WV, you can see a classic spine-tingling thriller for the low low price of five bucks. They kicked off Sunday Sept 10th with Jaws, but if you missed it, have no fear – yet! Continue Reading →
Our dear friend Adam Edwards shot the first scenes of Atomic Beast Studios ‘Flesh Rot’ (working title), an epic genre-spanning web series, nearly a month ago on June 23. I love Adam and I love WV horror, so I was there in my official capacity as wardrobe madam and PA, pestering the makeup team, painting tentacles and generally having a grand old time. Not to give too much away, but some stars went off to the location to get intimate with the aforementioned tentacles and I turned into a zombie (that’s so Penny, I know!) Continue Reading →
Pepper Fandango and Penny Maple finally have a little something something to share with all our friends who have missed our burlesque dance shows around Charleston, WV! Thanks to Mr. Chase Henderson, local Dr. Sketchy’s mad professor, who recorded our new burly-q act when we opened for Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque on the Go-Go at Charleston, WV’s world-famous Empty Glass. Chase thinks the video could have turned out better, but we love it! It was a packed show in a tiny venue and Chase did a fantastic job of capturing our particular brand of frenetic, messy burlesque dance – and you should tell him so!

*Edit: I’m a jackass. This was the first time Pepper and I have been joined by the rest of the Pepper Fandango Band, and I owe them a huge thanks. Drummer Dave Roberts and bassist Andy Jones didn’t get a chance to practice with us beforehand, but you couldn’t tell, could you? I hope it’s not the last time they join us on stage!
Charleston’s Burlesque Revival has been gestating since winter, and by my calculations should be crowning sometime late next month.
Who do we have to blame for this delicious descent into hedonism? It might seem like Pepper and I are guilty as sin, but I think we can trace it to Chase Henderson, local Dr. Sketchy’s mad professor. Sketchy’s, for the uninitiated, is a burlesque figure drawing class, and Chase has been hinting from the beginning that he wouldn’t mind some real live burlesquing at our monthly art class.
