Benefit for Eddie Dane's Eyeballs this Wednesday, November 10, at the Uptown Nightclub in Oakland

Eddie Dane of the Hubba Hubba Revue needs your assistance!

Along with Kingfish, Eddie Dane is pretty much co-everything Hubba Hubba Revue. They work as a team, and you can see him work his vaudevillian magic with Kingfish every Monday at the Uptown Nightclub and at their monthly "Big Show" at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco every third Friday.

Recently, Eddie has learned that he needs to have a series of eye surgeries to save his sight. And like many people in burlesque, he has no health insurance, so the medical bills will be astronomical.

This is where you can help out. This Wednesday, November 10, there will be a benefit show at the aforementioned Uptown Nightclub. The proceeds from "Eddie's Eyeballs Benefit" will go towards his medical bills, and you'll have a fantastic time, too!

Check out the lineup of performers for the evening! Miss Balla Fire, Sparkly Devil, Last Night's Fling, Twilight Vixen Revue, Honey Penny... It's a veritable who's who of Bay Area Burlesque! And that's not all! There will be comedy from Kevin Hancock and Mary Van Note! Plus, there will be music from The Phenomenauts and Toshio Hirano! O. M. G. If you haven't heard Toshio Hirano perform, you can't miss that. He's an American Bluegrass musician and singer. The Bay Area's Japanese yodeling cowboy! He's won SF Bay Guardian and SF Weekly "Best of" awards, and someone even made a short documentary about him. See the trailer below!

Also performing will be Bella Trixx and the Displayed Labors Sideshow. I don't think you'll find any other show where you can see the "hooks, piercings, and blood" of DLS and the stylings of Toshio Hirano. That's one of the wonderful and unique things about burlesque shows in the Bay Area!

Of course, keeping the reins on and spurring along the show will be Eddie's partner, Kingfish. It promises to be a wonderful evening, and you can get in for only $10! Of course, you'll want to bring more dough along in case you such items as "Eddie Dane Commemorative Eye Patches" may be available for purchase, or if you decide you simply want to donate more money to the cause.

Speaking of, if you can't make it to the show, you can donate online from the comfort of your own home! Yes, simply visit, and you can donate however much you want to Eddie. Isn't the "interwebs" wonderful?

Hope to see you on Wednesday!
