First thing first: Duluth Dolls is not a rock band; it’s a burlesque act. But while the performers don’t wield guitars or hammer on drums, they bring a kick-ass rock ’n’ roll attitude to a dance genre nurtured in the American dance halls and theaters of the 19th Century. The northland’s premier burlesque and cabaret troupe includes Danie Jimenez, Aurora Borealis, Khaleesi Khaos, Jade Fury, Stella Blue, Lilly LaRouge and Miss Creant. Expect a lot of sassy attitude, colorful costumes and moves that evoke blushes from the audience.
