Saturday & Sunday, October 23-24: Burlesque-related happenings this weekend

Though rain is in the forecast this weekend, there are still some burlesque-related events going on and about town for those who will be venturing out:

  • MTV and Screen Gems will be having a dance contest on Saturday, October 23, at Macy's San Francisco at their Union Square store, 170 O'Farrell Street (map), in the Juniors Department on Level 4 starting at 2 p.m. Registration starts at 1 p.m. It is part of a nationwide dance contest to promote the Christina Aguilera and Cher film, Burlesque. The contest is open to amateur dancers from ages 13 to 30. Winners will receive $300, VIP tickets to an advance screening of Burlesque, and the opportunity to move on to the next round and compete for the Grand Prize of $5,000 and a possible spot on MTV. Note that this is a general dance contest, and costumes should probably be "Macy's Juniors Department-friendly." For more information, and for the musical cue, please visit

  • If you were planning to attend the Exotic Erotic Ball on Saturday night, CBS 5 reported that it was canceled on Friday. One of the acts scheduled to perform was Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce. Reportedly it was canceled due to a drop in ticket sales in the days leading up to the event and unexpected cost overruns and operational issues.

  • The Devil-Ettes will be performing their Pip Squeak A Go Go children's show at two events on Sunday, October 24. The first will be at the Tricycle Music Fest West 2010, which will take place on the Larkin Street steps of the San Francisco Main Library (map) beginning at 11 a.m. This event is free.
