Great “Alternative Market” tonight in Richmond, VA!
Fallout RVA is having another one of their fantastic “Black Market” events. This event is essentially an alternative craft fair/yard sale where local vendors and patrons of the club sell everything from hand made items to gently used club gear.
It’s a great opportunity to pick up something new to you on the cheap so check out the link for the event above! No membership is required for this event & bring cash as many of the vendors (myself included) will not have a card reader!

Submitted by one of our followers here at Go Go For Brains, super cute footwork lady - thanks for submitting.
Still searching for more talented ladies to join our team’s ranks. We’re dancing for Boy George on 1 of his 3 US Tour dates this Friday! Want to be part of the fun? Love to dance and play dress up? E-mail us for more information on becoming a Deviant Dollz Go Go girl!
NC Teams that I can find online:
Enticing DOLLS Go Go
Carolina Commitee’s Ladies of Bass
I know there are more but I really can’t remember or seem to locate them on Facebook like I usually can. You have to find your own opportunities though. E-mail dance teams and venues you know in your area have go gos to see if they are holding auditions! Best of luck!

Love these bottoms, I wore them when I auditioned for EZ! They’re full coverage, flattering and the garters are removable! Just one of many items I think go gos will get a kick out of on the company I work for’s page. So check out their deals, everything is at least 50% below retail value. I’m not even joking, this a really great resource, I wish I’d known about CheapUndies sooner!
Making moves on Friday night at Bass Factory as “Neon Dollz” - I made the costumes for this one myself by creating my own patterns. The shorts stayed together amazing, 1 sleeve ripped & is easily repaired. I’m proudly wearing my “creative director” hat right now.
Myself & a lot of performers get questions from those who are new to the game about what it takes to be a performer. What does it take to be a professional? What do I need to know?
I had an idea, based off my own guidelines and the help of many of my extended go go family to put together “The 10 Commandments of Go Go.” Things we could all agree on were important to designate a professional and some one who is serious about their craft. I appreciate the input of all of those ladies and think that with our powers combined I’ve written a pretty good list of those requirements & ideals. So I hope everyone enjoy the article!
This is the golden rule in the world outside of go go & should be no different inside it. Whether those around you be other performers, promoters, musicians, etc. treat everyone with the same respect you hope to garner yourself.
When some one has invested in your talents, let them know you appreciate being a part of their event by showing up on time, or early. Plus, it never hurt to arrive early to have time to prepare, stretch and get a feel for the space you’ll be performing on.
It’s all about presentation! Remember, as a performer you are a character, you are an ideal & a fantasy - so that means coming to every gig prepared. Depending on the gig your essentials may vary but always having the proper items in tow is the mark of a professional.
This is a looks based industry. Take care your appearance & ensure your ability to withstand the physicality of dancing all night with proper nutrition, regular exercise and proper beauty rest!
Certainly one of the golden rules of performing! Always remember that the DJ/Musician is the star of the show & that you are there to heighten the experience he/she is giving the audience. We are the bells & whistles, but not the main attraction, respect that space.
Remember that while this is a looks based industry we are ambassadors of the event we are performing at. Remember that classy can also be sexy and respect the entire audience by keeping things within an appropriate limit.
Be a sponge! Try new moves, work with other performers, take classes! As a performer you should be constantly evolving & if you love what you do you will embrace learning all that you can.
Working for free, admission, drink tickets or simply for exposure harms the industry as a whole. Not to mention this kind of behavior harms your relationships with other performers and can create unnecessary drama for everyone involved.
You wouldn’t arrive to an office job this way & you shouldn’t treat a dancing gig with any less respect. Showing up “under the influence” conveys that you do not take your work or the hard work of others seriously. So don’t do it.
The best part of being a performer is that you get to share the joy you feel doing something you love with others each time you perform. Smile, express that joy and share it with the people around you. You never know when you may be making some one else smile back!
I used this concept to make booty shorts for my event this coming weekend and it turned out marvelously so far - I can’t wait to wear them. The concept is simple and I made a paper pattern from the undies I can hold on to and use for a long time.
Talk about getting some serious milage out of your favorite pair of booty shorts ladies! Hope you all get a chance to put this idea into action!
P.S. Stay tuned, I am working on a new blog post titled “The 10 Commandments of Go Go” based off what I have learned so far in the the industry & with the help of other performers. Hope all my followers are still there!
