Smart bets: Hot Summer Nights

What do you get when you cross traditional mountain music with scantily clad women? The Hot Summer Nights event, which brings bluegrass and showgirls to the same stage for what’s “destined to become a Southern classic,” according to organizer and sensual dance heroine Lady Christine. Performances include a spirited set by The Big Deal Band; showgirl acts by Les Femmes Mystique and Les Filles Charme; a medley by The Soul Train ladies, dance performances in go-go, jazzy Bhangra and hip-hop styles; a solo act by Lady Christine; impassioned singing by Alice n’ Wonderlust; summer mixes by DJ Bobbito Valentino; “and other fun surprises throughout the evening.” What once was an annual event is back by popular demand — this time at White Horse Black Mountain on Thursday, Sept. 3, from 8-11 p.m. $15/$18. whitehorseblackmountain.com.
