San Francisco area burlesque for the week of December 7, 2009

Looks like the shows are front-loaded towards the beginning of the week. Other than the Great Dickens Christmas Fair, there aren't any shows on Saturday or Sunday that I'm aware of yet.

The show that stands out this week is the Barbary Coast Burlesque show benefiting Satan's Angel on Wednesday at Annie's Social Club. Many of the Bay Area's most accomplished burlesque dancers will be performing at the show. Plus there will be a raffle with some pretty neato prizes. Looks like a great show!

Then there's the Bah! Humbug! The (Non) Holiday Spectacular! on Tuesday at the Elbo Room. It's a chance to see some of Bombshell Betty's newest dancers along with some of her Burlesqueteers and Fromagique. But since it's a non-holiday show, don't arrive dressed in holiday gear! Leave that Santa sweater at home. Ha ha!

If you're a fan of Little Minsky's, you'll want to catch the last show to be co-produced by The Flying Fox, who will be headed back to New York. Be sure to say farewell!

Have a great week, everybody! :-)

It's a favorite amongst the burlesque crowd, so keep your eyes open and you'll probably see some of your favorite performers! 11am to 7pm. Also Saturdays and Sundays through December 20.
