San Francisco area burlesque for March 31 to April 6, 2010

Oh, boy! This looks like the week for nerd fun! WonderCon 2010 is coming up this weekend, and the comics are infiltrating the burlesque shows!

For example, Fishnet Follies is joining with Swing Goth to bring you Ball of Justice and Comic Strip at the DNA Lounge on Friday. Some of your favorite burlesquers will be performing as your favorite comic book heroes and villains! Plus, there will be live music with The Phenomenauts and Grammy-nominated Los Straightjackets! I'm guessing lots of WonderCon attendees will be there!

First Friday Follies is also going with a science fiction theme in the East Bay on Friday, too. Seems they're using Star Trek terms in their show description, and one of their musical guests is The Final Frontiersmen. Boldly go!

The Kentucky Fried Woman Show at the Stork Club in Oakland on Saturday is called "Animation Nation," and they're saying that you may see performances including characters like the Powerpuff Girls, Roger Rabbit, etc. It looks like it'll be "toontastic!"

See below for the rest of the shows for the upcoming week. And if you're so moved, feel free to dress up as Tony Stark or Kick-Ass and see some superhero/comic strip character burlesque this weekend! Cheers!
