San Francisco area burlesque for the week of June 8, 2009

Woo! That Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend was a blast! Met so many burlesque people from around the world. Saw so many wonderful performances! Seemed like there was something to do and see 24/7! Oh my, how burlesque people know how to party! But now I've got to catch up on my stuff, including this "Week in SF Burlesque!"

Guess what? A bit of BHOF is coming here to the Bay Area! In addition to the locals who performed in Vegas (Bunny Pistol on Thursday night, Kiss Me Kate as a pick-up artist on Friday night), Alpha Psi Ecdysia from SUNY New Paltz is performing! They're one of the only university-affiliated burlesque troupes in the United States. I met some of them this past weekend, and I'm excited to see them perform at Little Minsky's on Thursday and Spookshow-A-G0-Go on Sunday!
