The Adult Nighclub Exotic Dancer Awards Returns to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS — The Annual Adult Nightclub and Exotic Dancer Awards Show—known more frequently as the ED’s Awards—will return for its 16th straight year at the 2013 EXPO at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. 

This year the show will take place at the House of Blues.

The Annual ED’s Awards Show, presented by Anheuser-Busch and slated for August 21 from 8-11 p.m., will honor the best in adult nightclubs, club staff and feature entertainment. 

The show will be hosted by comedian Adam Hunter and will feature special guest presenters, a brand new all-female house rock band Brazen and command performances by the four nominees for ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year Award, which include Christina Aguchi, Dakota Skye, Krystle Cummings and Lacey Rain. 

“To have such a great venue as the House of Blues play host to this prestigious celebration of our industry is something we’ve very excited about,” said Dave Manack, ED Publications’ associate publisher. “And with our Rock the House theme, we’re expecting all of our awards show guest to get in the spirit of the evening by unleashing their inner rock god or goddess.” 

Several rock star special presenters are slated to appear, including Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Vinnie Paul of Pantera and Hellyeah and Phil Varone, reality TV star and drummer of Saigon Kick.  

The voting for the 2013 ED's Awards will be held online only at from Thursday, June 20 through Friday, July 12.
