San Francisco area burlesque for the week of June 15, 2009

Well, how about that? It's almost time for SF Pride 2009! And some of the celebratory events are starting to kick off. There was Spookshow A-Go-Go: Lezbo A-Go-Go this past Sunday, and there'll be Diva Dan's Wicked Gorgeous Pride Celebration this Friday.

And it looks like there will be lots of shows to choose from this week, especially on Friday! In addition to the Hubba Hubba Revue "Big Show," there's the aforementioned Diva Dan's Wicked Gorgeous Pride Celebration, Red Hots Burlesque with special host Trauma Flintstone, and Cirque Noir Encore! The latter show may also be seen on Saturday.

Hmm. Looking through the lineup for HHR: Sideshow!, I see that Key West Burlesque will be special guests! Tatah DuJour was one of the contestants for Reigning Queen of Burlesque at this year's Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. She had this intriguing "Caveman" act in which she interacted with actors in caveman garb on a screen behind her. I wonder if she'll reprise that act?

Without further ado, here is the schedule for the week!
