More About Burlesque N Brass:
Dubbed "the coolest jazz brass band in Northern California" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland-based Blue Bone Express exposes the Bay Area to a type of jazz rarely heard beyond the Mississippi Delta. Combined with award-winning Hot Pink Feathers’ World Carnaval Cabaret dance, this explosive cabaret performance fuses music and dance traditions spanning the early-1900's New Orleans parades to the showgirl plumage of 1950's Rio de Janeiro Carnaval, the culture-clash hilarity of the '70s and '80s, and pushing through the present-day post-modern meltdown that is downtown Oakland.

“If you've never had the pleasure of seeing burlesque dancing performed to live jazz, then this is the place to start. It's like slugging down a pint of Uncle Peppy's moonshine after ten years of Nestea. It's sexy, spunky, sassy retro fun with all the heart and soul of Rio de Janeiro and the French Quarter, right there in downtown Oaktown. If you're looking for the perfect date, the perfect diversion, or just a chance to see an eminently sexy group of gifted hoofers grinding to hot jazz played by true enthusiasts, order a whiskey sour and settle into your seat for one of the best evenings the Bay Area has to offer.” --Thomas Roche for ErosZine.com

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

See you there! ;)

Barbary Coast Burlesque at Enrico's on Saturday, October 2

Barbary Coast Burlesque returns after a brief hiatus, and the show will go on this Saturday evening at Enrico's in San Francisco's North Beach.

Featured in the show will be Kitten on the Keys! Kitten (pictured) is a San Francisco music and burlesque icon who just this year was featured in the film, Tournée (On Tour), which won a Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival for Mathieu Amalric. Last month, she was the Mistress of Ceremonies for the Queen of Burlesque event at the New Orleans Burlesque Festival. You may have seen her perform at any number of events around the Bay Area, as she's always in demand. One thing is for sure, you'll never forget having seen her perform!

Also performing will be Isabella Minx, who has recently returned from a stint in New York City. In addition, witness Lady Satan (aka The Original Sin), who inhabits her burlesque characters like no one else! And get singed by Flame Cynders, whose white hot performance may just leave you thirsting for more drinks from the bar. Finally, Barbary Coast Burlesque's own Bunny Pistol won't be firing blanks. No sirree! Her aim is true, and you'll be hit by entertainment the likes of which you'll remember for a long time to come!

If you've never been to Enrico's, it's a jazz supper club that offers dining and cocktails. On one side of the club, there is a bar with some small tables and stools on which to sit. On the other side there are tables for dining. If you'd like to make a dinner reservation, please call 415-982-6223. You'll want to make sure to get there before 8 p.m. to find a good seat or vantage point from which to watch the show. It'll be Saturday night and it's free, so Enrico's will probably be packed!

So head on over to Enrico's for some delicious drinks, fabulous food, and bawdy burlesque this Saturday evening! Dare yourself!

This Friday night, catch Dottie Lux as she performs at two shows in the San Francisco Bay Area: Her very own Red Hots Burlesque at San Francisco's El Rio and Risk-A Cabaret at Sebastopol's Aubergine After Dark.

Who is Dottie Lux? Dottie has been performing burlesque since 2001, where she started performing in New York City. Did you know that she was the very first Dr. Sketchy's model? She's also been featured in many magazines such as SF Weekly, GO Magazine, and others. She's performed on stages across the country, including at Tease-O-Rama and the New York Burlesque Festival.

She started Red Hots Burlesque soon after she started performing, and in 2008 Dottie brought Red Hots Burlesque to San Francisco where there's a show every Friday at El Rio. In fact, it's the only weekly burlesque show in the city of San Francisco! She also operates and teaches at the Red Hots Burlesque School of Shimmy. For a complete schedule of classes, please visit redhotsburlesque.com.

Speaking of Red Hots, this Friday will be a special show! It's Kentucky Fried Woman's birthday! Come and help her celebrate as she FeMCs the show and then heads on out to the patio where the celebration will really get going!

The Stripping Granny performs this Monday at the Hubba Hubba Revue show in Oakland

If you read through the lineup for this Monday night's Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club in Oakland, you might just glance over her name. But there she is between Red Velvet and Zip The What-Is-It?! The Stripping Granny. One does a double take. The Stripping Granny?





Lynn Ruth Miller is an author, journalist, artist, humorist, storyteller, cabaret singer, and as she calls herself on her website, a survivor. She performs around the Bay Area at comedy clubs, cafes, theaters, night clubs, and she's put on her one-woman show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the past five years. She's also performed at the Brighton Festival, where's she's won the 2008 ThreeWeeks Editors' Award and 2009 Brighton’s Latest Magazine’s Star of the Festival Award.

The themes of this Pacifica resident's shows often revolve around aging, the embracing of one's uniqueness, and the encouragement of creativity. All of this is done with wit and humor, of course. Some of her shows include Aging Is Amazing, Farewell to the Tooth Fairy, and Alzheimer’s, Alzheimer’s Cha Cha Cha, all of which she staged and produced.

At 67 years of age, she published her first book, Starving Hearts. At 71, she decided to take up stand up comedy and performed at Edinburgh. Now, at 77, she'll be performing at the Hubba Hubba Revue!

That is one of the wonderful things about current day burlesque shows, isn't it? You not only get to see wonderful burlesque dancers such as Bunny Pistol, Miss Balla Fire, Ava Lanche, Honey Penny, Delilah, and Josie Starre, but you get to see very talented and unexpected acts like The Stripping Granny, Toshio Hirano the Yodeling Japanese Cowboy, and many others.

So drop by the Uptown on Monday night for some fantastic burlesque, plus a performance by a wonderfully inspirational and amazing individual who will make you question your preconceptions of aging. And she'll provide you with a few laughs and smiles along the way!

If you'd like to read and view more of Lynn Ruth Miller, please visit the Examiner.com review of one of her shows, Amy Ferguson's blog, the Festival Previews blog, her MySpace page, and LynnRuthMiller.net.

San Francisco area burlesque for September 22 to September 28, 2010

After a few weeks of wall-to-wall shows, it looks we've reached that part of the cycle where there's only a few shows this week.

It looks like Red Hots Burlesque is going to be busy, though! In fact, they'll be putting on two shows on Friday night in two cities that are about 80 miles apart. How will they do this? Is Dottie Lux a magician? Has she warped the time-space continuum? While Dottie is going on the road to Fat Cat in Modesto with one set of performers, another set will be holding down the fort at El Rio in San Francisco. Voila! Two Red Hots shows!

Then on Monday, The Stripping Granny will perform at the Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club in Oakland! Who is The Stripping Granny? Your intrepid SFBR reporter will investigate and report back on his findings! Also performing will be Bunny Pistol, Miss Balla Fire, Delilah, Ava Lanche, Honey Penny, Josie Starre, and Red Velvet.

Have a good week, everyone! :-)

  • Friday, September 24: Red Hots Burlesque at El Rio in San Francisco, 3158 Mission Street. This week, Dottie Lux will be away in Modesto (see below), but see Vivvyanne Forevermore, Isis Starr, Balla Fire & Miss Bella Trixx at El Rio as the show goes on! Show at 7:30pm. $5-10, sliding scale. 21+.

  • Also Friday: Red Hots Burlesque One Night Only at Fat Cat Music House and Lounge in Modesto, 930 11th Street. Dottie Lux will be hosting this show at Fat Cat, and she'll be bringing Ruby Vixen, Honey Lawless, Delilah, Alotta Boutte and AJ Molecular to entertain the Central Valley. Doors at 9pm, show at 10. $10 at the door. 21+.

Hot Pink Feathers classes and news: September 2010 (revised)

(SFBR Ombudsman's note: The editor and writer apparently have been staying out far too late and partying way too hard. The blog post of Thursday, September 16, concerning the Hot Pink Feathers contained several errors including bad and missing links, and an old class description. The SFBR has decided to re-post this article in its entirety with corrections. If you see the SFBR editor and writer out late drinking and carousing, please remind them of their responsibilities and send them on home. Thank you for your understanding.)

This year, the Hot Pink Feathers will be celebrating their 10th anniversary! Starting in 2000, the showgirls of HPF have been delighting audiences with their own brand of World Cabaret Showgirl dance! Led by the Queen of Carnaval SF 2008 Kellita, they've performed on many stages across the country, appeared on television, and won awards such as the San Francisco Bay Guardian's "Best Dance Company" in the 2008 edition of the "Best of the Bay" polls.

They'll also be celebrating the four year anniversary of their show Burlesque n' Brass. Along with their musical collaborators Blue Bone Express, they've been wowing audiences at Cafe Van Kleef in Oakland since 2006. And on Saturday, October 2, it'll also be a celebration of Kellita's birthday, so expect an extra helping of gloss and glitter! It all starts when the doors open at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10, and the show is for those 21 years of age and older. Cafe Van Kleef is located at 1621 Telegraph Avenue, near the 19th Street BART station.

The Feathers have also started up a Facebook Page. Just click on over there and click the "like" button, and you'll get updates through Facebook. That's so cool!

If you're looking for email updates, they've got you covered there, too. Just navigate over to hotpinkfeathers.com/calendar.html, and click on the pink link. Once you fill out the online form, you'll receive HPF news in your inbox via their new email service!

Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco presents Dottie Lux this Tuesday, September 21

This Tuesday, Dottie Lux of Red Hots Burlesque will be the guest model/performer at Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco! The event will take place at 111 Minna Gallery.

Dottie not only brings you San Francisco's only weekly burlesque show, but she also teaches classes at Red Hots Burlesque's School of Shimmy! She's performed in burlesque shows across the country, been featured in Curve Magazine, and appeared on Current TV, WNBC Morning News, and NBC Bay Area News! And now you have the opportunity to draw her!

If you've never been to Dr. Sketchy's, it's an opportunity for you to draw a live model. Dottie will pose for the audience in increasing increments of time. So the first poses will be for a few minutes to serve as a warm up, then poses will last for about five minutes. The last few poses may be for 10 minutes or more. She will probably also perform one of her numbers for the audience towards the end of the evening.

All of this happens in a fun environment at 111 Minna, and there's often music, contests and prizes, and even drinks available at the bar! During the breaks, you'll have the opportunity to socialize with other artists and admire each other's work.

So head on over to 111 Minna Gallery this coming Tuesday for an evening of drawing, burlesque, and fun!

Performances by Kitty Von Quimm, Vera DeVille, Dottie Lux and introducing the RHB debut of Dottie Von Polka and Oleeander Mooon!

Oleeander Moon (aka Jodi Waseca) has been fascinated with hobos and gypsies since the age of 3, when she picked up the art of dance and hasn't put it down since. Now as a bonafide adult, her fascination still lingers, and her love of dance has manifested into many forms including, but not limited to, Contemporary Fusion and Traditional Cabaret belly dance, Modern, Jazz and Hip Hop dance, Burlesque, Fire and Theatrical Performance...and generally a fusion of all of these. Jodi is the 2010 Breakthrough Fusion Dance Solo Artist, SF. She is also a good eater and likes cats and stripes.

Traveling across the country from the steamy streets of New Orleans, Miss Dottie von Polka's unique brand of Real SurReal Burlesque is sure to have the well seasoned Burlesque aficionado seeing spots. Dottie popped her Burly-Q cherry with Big City Burlesque out of Atlanta and is currently a free agent in the New Orleans Burlesque scene; most recently speckling the stage with the Storyville Starlettes. Miss Dottie Von Polka is available for Party's, Weddings, Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties while on the West Coast but catch her quick...she's back to the Southeast Sep 26th. You never know were you'll spot her next! http://www.DottieVonPolka.com

Hubba Hubba Revue's Four Year Anniversary Spectacular this Friday, September 17

The Hubba Hubba Revue is celebrating their fourth year anniversary this Friday night at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco!

Can you believe it's been four years? The show doesn't look a day over two! The first Hubba Hubba Revue show was on September 16, 2006. There's a copy of the the first show's flier to the left. You'll notice that the cover is still $15! And believe me, it's even more of a bargain today. If you'd like to see some pictures from that show, there are some at dnalounge.com. You'll see that not much has changed in the intervening years. Wait... does Kingfish have hair in those pictures?!?!

During the past four years, Kingish and Eddie's Hubba Hubba Revue has consistently put together the largest and most entertaining burlesque and variety shows west of the Mississippi. The shows not only feature sexy women performing striptease, but also daredevils, comedians, aerialists, rock bands, jazz vocalists, magicians, swing bands, and many other acts that you probably would not otherwise see in your day-to-day lives.

And this Friday's show promises to be one of the biggest, sexiest, and most exciting yet! It's often said that a show will feature an all-star lineup, but this show will truly deliver! The Hot Pink Feathers, the Twilight Vixen Revue, the Diamond Daggers, Sparkly Devil, Mynx d'Meanor, Alotta Boutté, Delilah, Flame Cynders... the list of Bay Area burlesque stars performing this Friday goes on and on!

Some of the acts that performed on that historic Friday evening in 2006 will be back this Friday! Roxy Shocks, The Twilight Vixen Revue, Flame Cynders, Gorilla X, and Mynx d'Meanor will all be returning to the DNA Lounge stage for this four year reunion.

It will be a night not to be missed if you're a fan of burlesque in the San Francisco Bay Area this weekend. So get your tickets at dnalounge.com, or get to the box office early on Friday evening to take advantage of the discounted $10 tickets. This is one show that is sure to be very popular!

San Francisco area burlesque for September 15 to September 21, 2010

Once again, this will be a very happening week in San Francisco Bay Area burlesque. There's lots of shows to choose from, or you can even try to attend most of them!

Dottie Lux
of Red Hots Burlesque will be having a very busy week. She'll be hosting the Beach House Rent Party show with Alotta Boutté on Thursday at El Rio, performing in the weekly Red Hots Burlesque show on Friday at El Rio, appearing in a "Special Addiction" of Red Hots Burlesque on Saturday night at the Center for Sex and Culture, and finally posing and performing at the Dr. Sketchy's SF event on Tuesday at 111 Minna Gallery. Wow! Plus I'm sure she's probably got some other events lined up, too. That will be one busy lady!

This is also the week of the big Hubba Hubba Revue fourth anniversary show at the DNA Lounge on Friday. If you take a look below at the lineup, you'll see that it is chock full of burlesque goodness! Many of the San Francisco Bay Area's best neo-burlesque performers will be appearing Friday night, so it's a show that you won't want to miss!

On Saturday, Sheba Queen of the Night of Séduction Féroce and Hotcakes will be guest starring in the Original Sin Burlesque show at Sanctuary Ultra Lounge in Livermore. And on Sunday, Debauchery will be happening at the White Horse Bar in Oakland!

Did you miss the Bombshell Betty and Fromagique's Sci-Fi Burlesque show this past Tuesday? Have no fear! They'll be bringing their Klingons and Jedi Knights to the Uptown's Hubba Hubba Revue show this coming Monday night! Science fiction burlesque has been the subject of many media stories in other parts of the country. Now you can see what the fuss is all about!

It looks like a pretty exciting week filled with great shows. Happy burlesquing, everyone! :-)

Les Follies Champagne and Variety Show

This monthly show at San Francisco's Bubble Lounge moves to the second Tuesday of the month for September. This month's featured burlesque performers are the Mischievous Maidens! Also, enjoy the comedy of emcee Lee Sanger Goldin, the musical stylings of Belinda Blair, and more comedy with Natasha Muse!

And there's no cover for this show. Just bring some dough for the bubbly you'll want to enjoy during the evening!

Comedy and Champagne are ** Guaranteed for GIDDINESS ** at this month's "Les Folies"!

MC Lee Sanger Goldin guides us through an evening of high class hooch and hoochie coochie at the Bubble Lounge's monthly cabaret: "Les Folies Champagne". Exquisite champagnes are paired with tantalizing, ecclectic live entertainment. This month we proudly present Belinda Blair, the Mischevious Maidens, and Natasha Muse. This is a night not to be missed-- especially since there's no cover charge!

Belinda Blair (Chanteuse on Ukulele with a stand-up bassist)
"Belinda has created a sassy, tongue-in-cheek vocal act on tenor ukulele. Her material ranges from blues, funk, bluegrass, reggae, soul, to indie rock and jazz. Next, she gets a crowbar and forces each song right out of its genre and into another of her choosing so it can be heard in a new way."
http://belindablair.com

Lee Sanger Goldin (MC and Comedian)
"Lee Sanger Goldin is an annoyingly diverse creative outhole. He has performed everything from Shakespeare to standup, sketch to improv, musicals to modern drama. As a writer he has penned plays, screenplays, music, political commentary, short stories, documentaries, and dirty poetry. On the Internet, Lee maintains a presence as a blogger, YouTuber, and podcaster."
http://www.chickenscratchimprov.com/bios

Mischevious Maidens (Burlesque Trio Extraordinaire)
Kitty Coquette, Bubble Yum, and Lady X are amazing burlesque performers who add a dash of juggling, comedy, and intrigue to their stripping! "The best burlesque of your LIFE!" http://themischievousmaidens.com

Natasha Muse (Comedienne)
"Natasha has performed all over the Bay Area, including the SF Comedy Clubhouse, the Purple Onion, the Dark Room, Castagnola's and the Actors' Theatre, where she produces and hosts "A Funny Night for Comedy" on the second Sunday of every month. Natasha is the first runner-up of the 2009 Battle of the Bay competition, and is almost definitely at least the second-funniest transsexual you know."
