Those of us who predicted that burlesque would go the way of the swing-dance craze are officially wrong. The tassels-and-ta-tas trend is here to stay, as The Ruby Revue is now a monthly showcase. April's edition features Miss Eva Strangelove, a slinky, tattooed brunette whose glowing smile makes her striptease seem almost wholesome. The show is 9 p.m. Thursday at the House of Blues Cambridge Room, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets ($15) are at 214-978-2583 or hob.com.
