Pin-up girls, strip teases, vintage cars and enough rock 'n' roll to bring Elvis back from the dead. What's not to love about Pinned Miami, the three-day pin-up, rockabilly, burlesque and tattoo festival that's hitting Miami this weekend? It's a retro renaissance, with enough cheekiness and '50s cheese to hold your pin curls over for the next half-century.

Here, in no particular order, are ten things to look forward to at Pinned Miami -- besides having a reason not to go to the beach on Memorial Day Weekend, which is something we can all twist and shout about.

Burlesque!
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for: The girls are coming out to play! No, not those girls... ok yes, those girls. Pinned Miami will have a full lineup of burlesque shows and lessons. Watch out for The Shimmy Shake Review, which will group together tassel tossing crews, like local favorite Shameless Burlesque, for a show filled with clothes-dropping acts and tasteful banter.

Pin-Up, the musical
You can't have a pinup festival without paying homage to the greats -- Lena Horne, Rosie the Riveter, Anna Mae Clift -- which is why the Art of the Pin Up Girl will be a treat for those who romanticize about pin ups from years past. For the first time in South Florida they'll be performing the show through original songs and narratives, each having to do with the aforementioned characters and more.
