Elise's Playground Geisha Ball

8 p.m. Saturday, March 24. $10, 18 and over. Peabody's/American Rockstar, 2083 E. 21st St., 216-776-9999.


Maybe Elise isn't actually from Japan, but here's what makes Elise's Playground Geisha Ball an authentic Asian bash you'll never forget: Before relocating to the Rust Belt, she learned to throw a party in New Orleans. Her fetish cabaret show stimulates all five senses, with emphasis on the visual and auditory. Cleveland electro-rock dance machine Ethereal Sedition will play a live set, and DJ Dale Cooper will spin synthpop, EBM, industrial, and retro tunes, as Mistress Natasha Fiore puts on a performance that raised eyebrows even back in the Big Easy. Asian costume attire is optional, but appreciated -- and you wouldn't want to disappoint Mistress Natasha, would you?
