San Francisco area burlesque for the week of October 19, 2009

Looks like the Hubba Hubbas are gonna be extra busy this week! Not only do they have their weekly Monday show and their monthly big show on Friday (Oktoberfest!), but they've also got a Burlesque Rock Showcase on Saturday night at the Uptown in Oakland! I wonder if you'll see any of them out and about on Sunday morning. Ha ha!

Well, if they're out on Sunday, I'm sure they'll be at A Witch's Brew at the Stud in San Francisco. You've got a vintage car show. You got raffles. You got burlesque with Marie La Faux, Dottie Lux, and Lili Le Rouge. Lady Monster will be hosting. If there's a reason to be out of bed by 3pm, this is it! ;-)

And the week starts off with Flame Cynders at Dr. Sketchy's SF at 111 Minna Gallery. Even if you're not an artist, you'll be able to hang out at the bar for free and watch the artists (and Flame) at work!
