Join birthday boy Johnny Crash at this Friday's Red Hots Burlesque for some really, really smart burlesque, led by Dr. Lucky of New York City and our very own La Chica Boom!

Red Hots flier, October 15, 2010

San Francisco's only weekly burlesque show promises bumps grinds and giggles galore, nothing new there...BUT this week we will be (1)Celebrating a grand birthday (2) Welcoming a NYC Celebrity and (3) Raising funds for La Chica Boom's annual POC performance weekend Kaleidoscope!

1. Johnny Crash- Red Hots Burlesque's beloved photographer is celebrating his birth. Come on out and take his photo for a change!

2. Dr. Lucky visits SF! Dr. Lucky is a seasoned performer, producer and educator. Over the past 10 years, Lucky has carved a space for herself with her unique comedic timing and over-the-top theatricality. She has been hailed a "big, bad, bold drag queen" by Bust magazine and has been featured on NPR's Morning Edition, NY1,, Washington Post, among others. Career highlights include co-hosting the Miss Exotic World Competition, headlining (and crowd surfing!) the New York Burlesque Festival, headlining the Toronto Burlesque Festival, sharing the stage with the Flaming Lips in front of 10,000 adoring fans (Virgin Music Festival), and performing at the Establishment (Rothbury Music Festival). Lucky is happy to collaborate with Julie Atlas Muz in their monthly show, Wanted! Though a huge fan of hyperbole, the prefix to her name is the one "real" thing about her: she is the only burlesque performer in the world with a PhD. For the past five years, she has taught unsuspecting drama students at New York University how to twirl tassels and think critically about burlesque.

3. There will be a raffle and a % of the door will go to raise funds for Kaleidoscope! Kaleidoscope's mission is to entertain and cast light on the knowledge, actions, and transformations that pertain to people of color performance and race positive sexuality. Kaleidoscope aims to develop, politicize and enrich the lives of cabaret performers of color by providing a high quality production that centers the artistic vitality of performers of color, an educational symposium that promotes the creative and intellectual growth of emerging and established performers of color, and a platform for local and national artists to build community. For the past three years Kaleidoscope has been showcased to sold out audiences. Kaleidoscope entertains, inspires, and arouses.

This is one week not to miss! Because there will also be performances by Simone Campell, Spy Girlfriday, La Chica Boom, Ruby White all hosted by Dottie Lux!

Our show also includes a screening of filthy and freaky film footage and tortuous tunage from Alex BIG Cox. Grab a drink, some *free* Oysters and BBQ at El Rio's famous happy hour ( voted "THE BEST OF THE BAY" by the SF Weekly) and watch us twitch and twatch!
