But I'm getting ahead of even the discount stores! It's the beginning of July, which means that it's time for First Friday Follies (www.myspace.com/firstfridayfollies)! The East Bay's very own free burlesque show that coincides with Oakland's Art Murmur (www.oaklandartmurmur.com). Like many cities, Oakland's artists get together and have a night where the galleries are open late and there are all kinds of activities. Towards the end of the evening, the Stork Club hosts First Friday Follies where you can see some of the best burlesque acts in the Bay Area.
Here are all the details of the show from Cupcake:
Good Day, Ladies and Gents!
Well, June flew by and it's already time for the next installment of The Follies! We have such a fabulous line-up for you! The show starts at 9:30...The Stork Club is located at 2330 Telegraph Ave in Oakland. As usual, no cover charge but donations are highly encouraged (and necessary to keep our show runnin'!). We sure hope you can make it! Get there early or you may not be able to see very well!
Our Line-Up includes:
Emcee Margaret France!
Music by Mugg Muggles!
Miss Bella Trixx!
My, oh, my! It's gonna rule!!! See you there!
No cover! 21+ w/ID
And Cupcake is not kidding about getting there early. The stage is at ground level, so the first few rows of people standing up will have a decent view of the happenings. Margaret France has been requesting that the first five or six rows of people sit, though, so more people have been able to see the stage. If she forgets, just ask her to make the request!
