Bay Area premiere of Fishnet Follies, Monday, March 22, 2010

It started in San Diego several years ago when Mynx d'Meanor moved to San Diego and thought that it needed a show that would bring together all of the area's burlesque troupes plus special out-of-town guests. Thus was Fishnet Follies conceived. For several years, she produced shows such as Breastacular! Breastacular! and the very popular Comic Strip.

Now, she's returned to the Bay Area and brought the Follies with her! Along with her co-producer Flame Cynders, Mynx d'Meanor is proud to present the the first Fishnet Follies show at the Uptown Club in Oakland this coming Monday night, March 22. They've lined up some local burlesquers to perform, and some very special guest performers from across the Pacific!

From the Land of the Rising Sun, Violet Eva will be performing! A headliner with the Murasaki Babydoll burlesque troupe, as well as being their director and choreographer, she won the "Best Debut" award at 2007 Miss Exotic World.

Also performing will be jazz and cabaret singer Maki Rinka, fresh from her performances at SXSW. In a Japan Times Online article, she jokingly said that she likes "to play at a place where people can drink and eat food and talk, because my music goes well with alcohol (laughs)." So keep the Uptown's bar busy on Monday night! To listen to some of her songs, visit her MySpace page.

The show details are below. And look! It's only five bucks! And if you're wondering what happened to the Hubba Hubba Revue, don't sweat it! They've graciously allowed Fishnet Follies to have this one Monday night and will be back in fine form next week!
