The intersection of geekdom and libido has long been underestimated, but it’s our understanding that great imagination and great sex go hand in hand. This weekend, burlesque troupes Epic Win, D20, and Rawr underline that point in silver lipstick at Nerdlesque Festival 2014, a sexy celebration of all things dorktacular. Friday and Saturday performances at Highline Ballroom and (Le) Poisson Rouge are bursting with talent, but the jetpacks start peeling off in a special preview tonight at DROM. Meanwhile, the ecdysiasts edify with classes like “Stripping the Superhero.” It all wraps up with a Sunday brunch at Beauty Bar, complete with Rock Band and other video game delights.

Thursdays-Sundays, 6 p.m. Starts: April 3. Continues through April 6, 2014
