Join the Devil-Ettes this weekend for music and Pip Squeak A Go Go!

On Friday, May 21, San Francisco's go-go dancing sweethearts the Devil-Ettes (as the Mini Skirt Mob) will be performing at the Nokie Edwards show at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

As a guitarist with the Ventures, Nokie Edwards played on some of the most popular and enduring instrumental rock songs ever. "Walk Don't Run," "Pipeline," "Perfidia," and the theme from the television series Hawaii Five-O are some of the Ventures' most popular hits. The Ventures were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, and are the best-selling instrumental band of all time.

Also performing will be Venturesmania, Deke Dickerson & the Ecco-Fonics, and Pollo Del Mar.

It will be an all ages show. Tickets are $15 in advance at, and $20 at the door.

Then, on Saturday, the Devil-Ettes will host an event for the little ones and their parents which will also be a fundraiser for the Cure JM Foundation. It's Pip Squeak A Go Go at Rhythmix Cultural Works in Alameda!

1 - 4:30 PM, Saturday, May 22

Presented by The Devil-Ettes and Baby Doe Productions this event is a BENEFIT for the Cure JM Foundation (, which hopes to find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an extremely rare autoimmune disease. In particular, this is a benefit in the name of Mielle Gonzalez, a 8-year-old Alamedan who was diagnosed with JM at the age of 5. Since then, she has endured treatment involving powerful drugs that come with major, horrible side effects, including terrible headaches and nausea, excessive weight gain, wild rages and mood swings. Her life now involves regular blood draws, intravenous drug treatments, and trips to a specialist in Chicago.

Shockingly, for a disease that strikes 3 children out of one million, there are now THREE known cases of juvenile dermatomyositis in Alameda. Cure JM provides invaluable support to these local families and others like them, and funds research into better treatments and ultimately a CURE for this dreaded disease. You can read more about Mielle and her story here:

Established in 2006, Pip Squeak A Go Go has been the most rockin’ dance party for all ages! We are excited to be back in Alameda for our second dance party benefit for Cure JM. They’re working to find a cure for juvenile dermatomyocitis, a debilitating disease whose symptoms include muscle weakness and pain, severe fatigue, rashes and a whole host of others. The disease affects 5,000 children here in the United States – including two girls in Alameda, CA.
