On Sunday, Oct. 30, at El Cid, the Sultry Sweet Burlesque & Variety Show presented Asylum, a twisted look into the insane, dark, perverted and demented medical staff and patients of a sexy mental hospital. The show featured performances by Leggy Lass Greenleaf, Erica Snap, Sin Twisted, Galaxy Jax, Cherish Bliss, Mercury Troy, Veronica Voss, Audrey Deluxe, Angie Cakes, Maya Papaya, Dolly Danger, Teena Pugliese, Robin Switch, Hazel LeRue and the Kittens (Miss Spent Youth and Battyna Sin). The whole thing was hosted by Enoch Augustus Scott.

The evening was filled with songs and screams, as there was an onstage lobotomy and patients were chased and dragged across the stage, underwent electric shock therapy and tormented the crowd, and nails were hammered into noses. Sin Twisted took the stage for a contortion act that was sure to make anyone cringe. 
Horror and striptease. What more could you ask for on a Halloween weekend?
