What You Missed: Comic-Con International, the Devil's Playground Burlesque, Rage Against the Machine, the Offspring

Heeeey. What'd you miss this weekend? We had a good one, with some of us down in San Diego for the 2010 Comic-Con International. We attended some panels, saw some celebrities, went to some parties, sure... but the best event of the weekend? The Devil's Playground Comic Comp. burlesque show, where the now infamous troupe put on a best of-type compilation show, featuring characters like Cat Woman, Link, Tank Girl, Darth Vader and more.

Nearly-naked gals in nerdy costumes aside, we also checked out Rage Against the Machine and Conor Oberst's Soundstrike Benefit in Los Angeles and the Offspring and 311 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine. More photos and details after the jump.

The Devil's Playground burlesque troupe presented the "greatest fantasy burlesque show on earth," with a compilation performance of their greatest hits: Comic Comp. 2010 at the Voyeur in San Diego. Gals were dressed up as video game characters (Link!), Star Wars (Darth!) and comic book vixens (Cat Woman! Tank Girl!). The night's line-up of performers included Courtney Cruz, Lucy Fur, Mia Vixen, Sin Fisted, Olivia Bellafonte, Kitty Cadillac. The show took place at Voyeur on Saturday night. See all the very much NSFW photos by Christopher Victorio right here.
