San Francisco area burlesque for October 20 to October 26, 2010

This is the week of Alotta Boutté! She'll be in two shows on Thursday night. First, she'll be a celebrity judge at Art Attack's One-Year Anniversary Show at supperclub in San Francisco, then she'll beam on over to Berkeley's Saturn Cafe's Space Lounge for Planet Burlesque! On Friday, she'll be performing at Baxtalo Drom's Cotton Club at Amnesia in San Francisco!

But there will be a few shows that she won't be in. Les Folies Champagne will be happening this Wednesday instead of their usual third Tuesday slot. Bella Trixx and Shadow Circus Creature Theatre will be performing at this swanky show at the Bubble Lounge in San Francisco.

The Devil-Ettes will be taking a break from their break to put on two of their Pip Squeak A Go Go shows at two events on Sunday. One is on the steps of the San Francisco Main Public Library for Tricycle Music Fest West 2010, and the other is East Bay Mini Maker Faire at Park Day School in Oakland.

Finally, Red Hots Burlesque and Hubba Hubba Revue will have their usual weekly shows on Friday and Monday, respectively.

And that's about it for this week's roundup of Bay Area shows. Have a good week, everyone! :-)
