Asheville’s Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival got started on Friday night, June 11, at Scandals with a Red Carpet Walk, teaser performances, annual ABSfest Recognition Awards, and more. Nearly a dozen performers thrilled the audience with singing, dancing, machete juggling and other wacky acts. Here are some images from the evening.
