San Francisco area burlesque for April 28 to May 4, 2010

The upcoming week kicks off with a bang... and a bump and a grind! It's Bombshell Betty's Fifth Burlesque Bailout at the Glas Kat in San Francisco on Wednesday, April 28. Join Mistress of Ceremonies Odessa Lil and a plethora of performers to help raise funds for struggling Bay Area performers.

The Hubba Hubba Revue keeps things rolling on Friday with a special Oakland show at the Uptown! It seems to be a 1930s theme going on, and it will feature some of your favorite performers as well as music from The Gomorran Social Aid & Pleasure Club!

This week also marks the last Kentucky Fried Woman Show. After 13 shows, she's calling it quite. But not before assembling one of the most amazing shows ever! You won't want to miss it this coming Saturday, May 1, at Velvet in Oakland. All proceeds will go to supporting two summer Oakland events, NOLOSE & FemmeCon 2010.
