Burlesque troupes in New Orleans seem to form at an exponential rate. The Contemporary Arts Center's annual Bourbon & Burlesque fundraiser is an opportunity to see many of them in one night, all while enjoying inventive cocktails and classy gala offerings. The troupes on the roster this year represent the new (the recently formed Crescent City Cupcakes), the stalwarts (Fleur de Tease, pictured) and the alternative (Queerlesque!, an LGBT troupe), plus others. Beyond burlesque, performing artists Angela Eve and Anastasios Ketsios, aerial artist Sarah the Bobcat, and chanteuses Ann Howe and Sasha Masakowski also perform. Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House provides cuisine, and cocktails feature Blanton's, Buffalo Trace, Jack Daniel's and Wild Turkey bourbon. Advance tickets $60 general admission, $25 CAC members; day of event, $80 general admission, $45 CAC members. VIP access tickets also are available. 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. — Lauren LaBorde
