It's a bit quiet this week in terms of amount of shows, but there are some quality ones upcoming. Bombshell Betty and her Burlequeteers will be at Uptown Hubba Hubba on Monday along with Fromagique. The Hot Pink Feathers will be helping to kick off Bay Area National Dance Week in Union Square. The weekly Red Hots Burlesque show will be on Friday evening at El Rio. And the Diamond Daggers are presenting a book release party/show on Saturday at Fat City. They'll have lots of quality performers there. And maybe Lady Monster will twirl her fire tassels! Only one way to find out....
