imageThey crowned new queens and commemorated World AIDS Day, so the Armorettes turned their attention to tainting your fond holiday memories with their camp drag spin on a classic holiday tale.

So they dressed in their Christmas best and unraveled “How the Vivian Stole Christmas” on Saturday during their monthly Backroom Burlesque show at the Heretic. The holidays won’t quite be the same ever again. Think drag queens sliding through a makeshift chimney chute and snorting (fake) coke above the stockings hung with such care.

The group, which raises funds for HIV charities, is now planning their two-night anniversary spectacular. The event is planned for Jan. 14-15 at Burkhart’s. When you turn 33, you deserve two nights. Just see how much fun they had during this year’s anniversary show.
