San Francisco area burlesque for April 7 to April 13, 2010

Let's take a look at the burlesque calendar and see what we've got coming up!

Little Minsky's has a nice mix of performers this Thursday at Club Deluxe in San Francisco. They usually do. It's a great atmosphere there, and the acts are top-notch.

Ooh! sASSy Hotbuns has a show she's producing at Winters Tavern in Pacifica on Friday night! And there's no cover! Of course, donations are welcome. It might be nice to stroll along the beach before the show (bundled up, of course) with someone special!

Booze, Broads, and Hotrods presented by the Bombshells is this Saturday at the SFO Clarion Hotel in Millbrae. La Cholita from Los Angeles is the special guest burlesque performer. They'll have lots of bands, a car show, and DJ dancing. It's a great event for all of you into rockabilly!

Johnny Crash has an exhibition of his burlesque photos this Saturday at Voila Cafe in Oakland. Art and burlesque is a natural fit, especially photography. I bought a photo of Flame Cynders from Johnny's vendor table at the last big Hubba Hubba Revue show. He's shot some great photos!

If you hadn't noticed, Gigi d'Flower is pregnant! Yes, some of you may not have noticed when she's performed recently, but she is due to deliver a future burlesque star soon! And Monday, you can join in the joyous occasion at the Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club in Oakland.

Lastly, next Tuesday Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco is presenting a tribute to the many faces of David Bowie. Kitty von Quim and Honey Penny will be the models who will channel the Bowie of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Plus they'll perform! Perfection. :-)
