San Francisco area burlesque for January 12 to 18, 2010

Whew! Lots of shows this week. From Bombshell Betty's Burlesque Bailout on Wednesday to Uptown Hubba Hubba on Monday, there's lots of opportunities to see some burlesque almost all week long.

There are some curves in the schedule this week. (Pun intended!)Barbary Coast Burlesque moves over to the Hemlock Tavern for their show on Wednesday, and the Hubba Hubba Revue will have a rare Friday show at the Uptown in Oakland. Annie's Social Club will be open for a one-time-only show on Thursday, Sneakeasy Speakeasy. Then to provide a bit of "normalcy," you have Little Minsky's on Thursday and Debauchery on Sunday for their regularly-scheduled monthly shows.

There will be another jam-packed week of burlesque and burlesque-related shows following, so get on out there and support your local burlesquers! :-D
