If you thought things at PhilaMOCA couldn’t get any sexier than last month’s Eraserhead tribute, here comes Miss Rose (pictured) to prove otherwise with a new bi-monthly series. For her Sexploitation Follies shows, Rose — whom you may know from Bravissimo Burlesque and Naked Girls Reading — is inviting local and national burlesque performers to embody characters from select film directors. This Saturday, out-of-towners Fifi Dupree, Porcelain Dalya and Ruby Solitaire join local artist Boylesquer Brettzo (as True Grit’s Rooster Cogburn) for a Coen Brothers-inspired showcase hosted by NYC emcee Neil O’Fortune. Upcoming performances include Mr. Deadguy’s spin on Dario Argento in October, Iris Explosion’s Tim Burton bonanza in December, a divine John Waters send-up in February and the royal treatment for Wes Anderson in April.
Sat., Aug. 18, 9 p.m., $12, PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 267-519-9651, philamoca.org.
