Living Legend of Burlesque benefit at Uptown Hubba Hubba Revue on Monday, May 10

It will be a very special evening at the Hubba Hubba Revue show this Monday at the Uptown in Oakland! The show not only will feature many of the San Francisco Bay Area's best burlesque performers, but it will also include appearances by Living Legends of Burlesque Ellion Ness and Viva La Fever!

The show will be a fundraiser for another Living Legend of Burlesque, Toni Elling (left), and the Burlesque Hall of Fame. The Living Legends of Burlesque are the performers who were shaking and shimmying in the previous heydays of burlesque during the middle of the twentieth century. Every year there is a "Titans of Tease" night in Las Vegas during the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend (June 3-6, this year) where the Living Legends perform. And Toni Elling needs your help to get there! And any additional funds raised will go to the BHoF itself.

Want to know more about Toni Elling? You can read an article in Detroit's Metro Times about Toni Elling and Lottie the Body. Burlesque star and teacher Jo Weldon also has an interview with Miss Elling on her blog, Daily Burlesque.

So in addition to helping out Miss Elling and the Burlesque Hall of Fame, you'll be in for a fantastic night of burlesque! Featured will be such luminaries as Kellita of the Hot Pink Feathers, Alotta Boutté, Lady Satan, and many others! The full list of performers are below in the text of the event notice.

In addition, there will be a raffle with many one-of-a-kind prizes! And if you can't make the show on Monday, don't forget that you can still help out by donating by PayPal. Instructions on how to purchase raffle tickets are also below.

I hope to see you at the Uptown on Monday night!
