8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Easy Street Cabaret Room. $5.
In what's becoming a holiday tradition, Little Rock's “Finest Assettes” once again present a scintillating night of burlesque, i.e. scantily clad ladies doing subversive sketch comedy. I've heard tell of some sort of “reverse Norman Bates” shower scene, and a femme fatale tribute to film noir. Usually, “feminist” is a modifier thrown in before local burlesque. Take it for what you will that it's nowhere to be found on this year's posters. Hideous Kinky, a local photographer whose name gives you an idea of her work, has documented this year's event since its inception. She'll kick off the weekend with a photography show at the ACAC space at 1419 S. Main on Thursday, 5-10 p.m. In addition to the two shows on Friday, the troupe will reprise their act at 9 p.m. Saturday, also at Easy Street. LM
