Smoke & Shadows: Burlesque & Live Music

February 1 – November 7, 2020

The Rockwell


Beyond the marquees and speakeasy, there is a place where bouncy vaudeville meets soulful sounds and fresh comedy meets the glint of rhinestones!

Whatever, nevermind! For the second time, Boston’s hottest burlesque meets Boston’s hottest musicians in a grungy mashup show paying tribute to the greatest underground rock icons of the 1990s.

Relive the sounds of Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and more while luscious dancers writhe to the bump & grind of sludgy alt rock. Playing since 2004, the Nephrok! Allstars includes some of the most talented musicians in the city and brings serious swagger, style, and showmanship to authentic metal and rock & roll mastery. Smoke & Shadows is celebrating its third anniversary of bringing together incredible live variety entertainment and is gearing up for the darkest & most badass edition yet.
