San Francisco area burlesque for the week of August 31, 2009

Looks like we've got another week of shows that's loaded towards the back of the week. So take a look at the shows and choose which ones you'd like to see.

If you've wanted to see the comedy troupe Killing My Lobster but haven't yet, this Friday will be a good time. They'll have as special guests the Hot Pink Feathers!

And on Saturday, you'll have a choice between Burlesque n' Brass with the Hot Pink Feathers and Blue Bone Express, or the Kentucky Fried Woman Show at Velvet.

Whatever you choose, you'll probably have a great time. So it's a win-win decision! Enjoy, everyone! :-)
