San Francisco area burlesque for May 26 to June 1, 2010

Thanks to some late additions to the calendar this week, it looks like there will be a variety of shows to choose from after all. Though it looks like a week to enjoy your Dottie Lux, as she'll be in three of the shows!

This Wednesday, there will be some burlesque mixed in with some rock and roll at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco. So if you love your burlesque mixed with some rock bands, that show is a good bet!

Friday brings Dottie Lux at her own show, Red Hots Burlesque. This week, the RHB School of Shimmy graduates take the stage for the very first time at El Rio! Then Dottie hotfoots it down the street to Amnesia, where she'll host the monthly Baxtalo Drom gypsy punk event.

Across the Bay in Oakland, Randy Johnson and Fromagique will join with the East Bay's Original Sin Burlesque to help Eve Devlin celebrate her birthday at the Uptown Nightclub.

On Sunday, the Hot Pink Feathers will be participating in the annual SF Carnaval Grand Parade. If you've never been, watching the parade is a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Grab something to eat and drink, find a spot to sit or stand along Mission or 24th Streets, and wave at the Hot Pink Feathers and take their pictures. There are lots of other colorful and talented participants, too!

Then finally on Monday, there's the weekly Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown in Oakland. Can't miss that one! Kiss Me Kate may be tuning up the act she'll perform at this year's Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend! That would be such a treat! :-)
