The Fishnet Follies were founded by Mynx d'Meanor in San Diego several years ago. She has since moved back to San Francisco, so she's brought the Follies to the City by the Bay. She's been joined by Flame Cynders as co-producer, and this pairing promises to result in many wonderful shows in the near future.
Hubba Hubba Revue: Awards Show! will be this Friday at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco. They've assembled a tremendous cast, and they'll spoof everything there is to spoof about all of those Hollywood awards shows. It should be something to see!
On Wednesday, Barbary Coast Burlesque will be having a special St. Patrick's Day show at Hotel Utah. There are five burlesquers scheduled, so there should be two acts per performer. They'll also have drink specials, including Irish Car Bombs for $5. Enjoy! :-)
