Bunny Hut Burlesque cancelled...but across the bay there's Knocktoberfest!

Yes, bad news...October's Bunny Hut Burlesque has been cancelled. And according to a MySpace bulletin Bunny Pistol posted, there won't be one until December. And no Eddie Dane as host...

On the other hand, Eddie's partner in crime, Kingfish, will be hosting Knocktoberfest across the bay at the Uptown Nightclub In Oakland! Join Dangerous Curves (including my buddy, sASSy Hotbuns!) as they put on a burlesque show backed by a live '80s band, Fast Times. Proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure fund to fight breast cancer. A worthy cause! And fun!

** Knocktoberfest **

Come join us at The Uptown on October 11th for an evening of hot burlesque acts and cool 80's music to fight breast cancer!

• Fabulous emcee, Kingfish
• Live 80’s music by Fast Times
• Live burlesque performances by Dangerous Curves, Rubenesque Burlesque, Chi Chis Del Fuego, Miss Balla Fire, Holly High Beams, Beauty LaBomb, & more!
• Meet the Silicon Valley Roller Girls
• Charity karaoke with Fast Times -- sing on stage!
• Kissing booth, exams for your mams, and other fun stuff!
• Proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen For The Cure

If you've never seen live burlesque, it's hot stuff. If you've never seen live burlesque performed with a live backing band... that's because it's rarely done! The burlesque dancers are preparing special routines to 80s songs that FT will play live -- and FT will be debuting some new material just for the event. It promises to be a scandalous night for anyone 21 and over.

And yes -- for any of you who have ever wanted to SING with Fast Times, Elektro and Chynna will be relinquishing the microphone to the highest bidders on a handful of songs.

This may never happen again!

The venue for this special event is The Uptown - 1928 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland.

The Uptown serves fantastic drinks, is literally a block from BART, and was just voted the Best of the Bay '08 for both Best Rock Club and Best Burlesque Show -- so you're getting both in one night!

Doors open at 9pm, and we're asking for a $10 minimum donation.

We're very proud to be organizing this event.

Please, come out to support a good cause and see Fast Times like you've never seen it before!

See you there!

Okay. Say you're absolutely against going across a bridge. All is not lost! Tease-O-Rama MC Kitten on the Keys is appearing with local ecdysiast Mariel A la Mode at Teatro ZinZanni's Cabaret Lunatique! Saturday, October 11 only!

From what I gather, Cabaret Lunatique is on the Embarcadero (at Battery) in the Teatro Zinzanni tent at Pier 29. El Vez hosts, and there are various cabaret acts. The show starts at 11pm and runs about three hours. Best of all, it's "only" $20. Considering that the usual Teatro Zinzanni show is about $100, I may go just to see what's in the tent. Hehe.

There are also shows featuring different performers on October 25 and November 8. For more information, and to purchase tickets, please visit
