About our debut performers:
Cherry Poppins is a radical queer femme artist, performer, writer, and organizer. She just moved to the Bay Area from Austin, TX, where she spent 7 years producing a drag/queer burlesque troupe, co-founding a radical queerleading squad, launching the Austin chapter of the Femme Mafia, building community, making zines, and organizing events (she's keeping herself busy here in the Bay, as well). She's committed to anti-racism, social justice, and building consent-based cultures. She crafts like it's going out of style, journals obsessively, and leaves a trail of glitter in her wake.

After Red Hots, the Hubba Hubba Revue will be staging their "Fairytales!" show over at the DNA Lounge. This is their "Big Show" that usually happens on the third Friday of the month, but it's this Friday due to club's scheduling scheduling processes. Or something like that. Heh.

This show will feature Marianne Cheesecake from London, and Fever Blister and Josie Bunnie from Los Angeles. Plus, see Bombshell Betty as Little Red Riding Hood! (See the flier below!)

"The Crux belong in barns, clanging away with armloads of rusted chains, wailing through cheap electric bullhorns, hoisting ancient portable cassette players in the air and pressing play, pressing the buttons half-sewn onto last century's dresses and defrocking the eternal mystery of theater."- North Bay Bohemian

Burlesque's wild rose
I was born in the jungle, originally given the name Jesse Rose aka The Jesse Rose of Texas. Maybe even then they knew I'd be too much for just one name. After learning my way around the wilderness as a child I then learned my way around the savages as a young lady. Now instead of trying to tame I practice the art of tease. I've been dancing since I knew I had hips and flirting since I knew it was fun. Why don't you come up, see me some time!?
