San Francisco area burlesque for the week of May 18, 2009

Whew! Is it hot around here or is it just the burlesque? ;-)

Looks like we got a week for Fromagique! With music and dancers so hot they could make a pizza. If only they had some dough. Ha ha. Yes, there are two opportunities to see them this week. At the Uptown in Oakland on Monday, and Wednesday as they perform at the Varona CD release party at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

On Friday, Red Hots Burlesque is free!. And they've got a live band to back up the dancers. Woo hoo!
