Hi everyone! Welcome to another review from the desert. It was a pretty crazy night, with some wild acts, if I do say so myself. Of course, no evening at the Winds is the same if the lovely Annie isn’t out there in front meeting and greeting and looking spectacular as always! Tonight she wore a barely there silver silk outfit, and I mean bare was there!! Ooh La La Annie!

Laissez les bons temps rouler! We had not one but TWO Mardi Gras themed dances this evening. Tuesday is Fat Tuesday…and I have to admit I know so little about Mardi Gras being a Yankee and all. All I know is boobs, beads, music, parades and beer. I kinda assume there is more to it than that! Winnie brought us to the Bourbon Street Parade, along for the party was Roni, BB, Lotta, Kellen, Jo and me. We danced and shimmied down the street with the balloons and the band playing wearing some very cool outfits. I didn’t earn any beads though…maybe next year!

2 WinnieWe swept up the confetti and popped all the balloons just in time for Gunner to take the stage. Welcome back to G and his return to the Winds stage! We are glad you are back. Tonight Gunner brought along 2 demons by the names of BabyPea & Jilley and they danced to The Wizard by Black Sabbath. This was one very cool set and I know I can’t do it justice with words but it starts out as a stage with 2 houses that faded into the lava…then we have fire….lots of fire and lava and demons! Gunner floats around the stage on a hot lava/fire rock as the demons fly around him….I’m not sure if this was good vs evil or just evil but whatever, the effects were awesome and it was a killer set!

After we all cooled down a bit, Devlin took the stage and…what is this? MORE FIRE? Well, kind of….Devlin danced this week to Fireball by Pitbull and had 4 sexy helpers, Ariel, Muse, Meegan and Amanda with him. His set was a jungle with a cool ruin in the center that he danced on before he joined the women. This song is so infectious and you can’t help but sing and dance a little to it. Getting to watch some sexy dancers just sweetens the deal. Awesome set Devlin!

Kellan, Kellan, Kellan….damn woman you are the mover Queen! You ever wondered how dancers get things to move across the stage or rise from the floor or dance from one place to another? They use a mover. Each start and stop is a mover….each mover is timed as to when to move and stop. Kellan had so much going on in this set I can’t imagine how many it took to get her things to move like they did. She danced to Sweet Dreams (are made of these) by Marilyn Manson, just the song is creepy as it is, and Kellan added a visual to the creepiness. She started in a bedroom and the set opened up to an asylum complete with patients. That transformed to a graveyard as a big hand rises from the ground and picks her up. It moves her up and down, blood pours all over the ground, hands reach out to her from the floor! AHHHHHH!! One last time the hand raises her and she has angel wings on…only to die on the cross. Kellan…no more eating before bed, you have some weird dreams!

Lotta let the good times roll and brought us back to Bourbon Street. Lotta is a funny woman, and her emotes are even funnier. Being a native of Louisiana she took the opportunity to teach us the rules and guidelines for visiting Mardi Gras.
“So as a native of Louisiana, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you all a few rules for non-locals during Mardi Gras. I feel the need to both warn and educate them about the dos and dont’s of the festivities.” Some of them were…don’t pick up beads from the street because people puke and pee in the street, and you just look like an idiot! Yes there will be body parts flashed. No you cannot grope them! People decorate with the beads, they are not free for the taking! Be respectful! Her costume was just gorgeous and it was a fun set to the song They All Ask’d For You by The Meters (which is funny too!).

We had to leave Mardi Gras behind for the next set. Adam and Muse were part of a very sexy airplane ride….mine are never this fun. There was a lot of skin shown by the pilot (Adam) and stewardesses (Muse & Amanda)….again, never when I fly!
They danced to the song Like a G6 by Far East Movement. The set allowed us to look inside a plane…I don’t know who was flying it as Adam was dancing. What should happen? All that sexiness blew the door off the side of the plane! We they sucked out to their deaths? Noooo they danced out on the wing of the plane until they activated their parachutes and floated away! What I liked the most was the use of moving visuals….the clouds moved, the birds flew by making us think it was actually moving. Super cool Adam and Muse! Thank you for flying the friendly skies!

7 Adam & MuseI was up next and I danced to The Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. The set was black with only a street light as I danced out. I faded to a rainy cobblestone street as a clock tower rose from the floor. Dancing in front of the clock until the end when we heard them sing…
“And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence”
The neon words slowly lowered from the ceiling to a once again dark set.
I read a lot about this song, trying to get a feel of what they were trying to tell us…and each article was vastly different and profound. To me, it struck a cord with all the crazy political things that are happening right now, and that is why I chose it.

Our last act of the evening was BabyPea…yes Mz BP is back! It was like a college reunion at Winds! In true BP fashion, we were taken on a strange ride into the mind of our fellow dancer. The song is The Bondage Song by London After Midnight and Baby chose an Alice in Wonderland theme. Baby was Alice and joining her was Gunner and Wild. The set starts out as a room with an alice theme and then swirls (literally) into a spiral and Baby is sucked into it, way cool effect by the way. It pops her out into a bondage room. Here Alice and others have shed some clothes which left me scratching my head…did I miss this chapter when I read the book? Was this like an alternative ending to the movie? Was the movie actually named Alice in BondageLand? Either way….it doesn’t matter, it was a very wild set! Applause BP and welcome back!
