The first Uptown Hubba Hubba Revue show of 2011 happens Monday, January 3!

Celebrate the start of 2011 with one of the finest burlesque shows in the world, the Hubba Hubba Revue! Their first show of the year will be this Monday night at the Uptown Nightclub in Oakland.

You'll be awed and amazed some of the area's most talented and hottest performers: Vaudie Va-Boom, Bunny Pistol, Red Velvet, and Delilah amongst others. This ain't no PG-13 Hollywood/Xtina burlesque. No ma'am! This is real, authentic, genuine, bonafide Bay Area burly-q!

The show will also feature Amber Lee Baker of Amber Lee and the Anomalies! She's Miss February in Renee de la Prade's 2011 Accordion Babes Album and Pin-Up Calendar! And if you're lucky Monday, perhaps she'll "alpha" you!




So gather your friends and family, and head out into the crisp California evening on Monday for the best time you can have on a Monday night in the Bay Area. And it's still just $5.00!

The Uptown is located at 1928 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland (map). The doors open at 9:00 p.m., and the show starts at about 10:15 p.m.

21st Century Magazine's Top 50 Burlesque Industry Figures: Vote today!

Every year, 21st Century Burlesque Magazine asks their readers to nominate between five and ten industry figures who have "impressed, excited, nurtured, inspired or entertained" readers during the past year. And now it's time to vote once again before the polls close on December 25!

You may vote/nominate at www.21stcenturyburlesque.com/?page_id=9895.

Who you choose is totally up to you, but the magazine states that in addition to perfomers, you may also nominate others in burlesque, including producers, volunteers, writers, hosts or emcees, musicians or singers, or pretty much anyone else in the community.

There doesn't appear to be any prizes or monetary awards associated with the poll, but it's nice to be appreciated by one's peers and fans. Plus a top 50 finish looks great on one's self-description in marketing materials or on a Facebook profile!

So vote now or before December 25! The results will be announced in the New Year. You can read about last year's results at the 21st Century Burlesque Magazine's site.

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

Christmas week is here, so that means that there won't be many shows this week and next. But that doesn't mean that there won't be any at all!

If you're still in town and would like to check out some hot burlesque and comedy to warm your Wednesday night, The Polk Street Lounge is here to satisfy your cravings. There are some top-notch comedians scheduled to perform, including Mary Van Note, recipient of a 2010 SF Weekly Masterminds grant. Not to mention you get to see and appreciate sASSy Hotbuns, Mynx d'Meanor, Bunny Pistol, and Miss Mae Western! Oh yeah! It all goes down at the Hemlock Tavern, 1131 Polk Street in San Francisco starting at 9:00 p.m.

A lot of people are taking Christmas off, but not Baxtalo Drom. No sirree! Sister Kate's show will be trooping on as they plan to welcome in Christmas Day at Amnesia in the Mission! Not only will you get to celebrate the holiday, but you'll be able to groove to the mixes of DJ Wolfgang von Cope (check out his "If I Were a Hobo" mix!), be amazed by the knife-throwing skills of Molotov, stomp your feet to the blues and roots music of Devine's Jug Band, and be entertained by the emcee, punk rock polka goddess Esmeralda Strange! Amnesia is located at 853 Valencia Street, and the festivities start at 9:00 p.m. Arrive before 10:00 and get in for just $5.00!

Last but not least, the award-winning Hubba Hubba Revue's weekly show at the Uptown Nightclub in Oakland will be happening as usual on Monday night. It really is the best value in entertainment in the Bay Area that evening at just $5.00! For not much moolah, you'll get to see such talent as Mynx d'Meanor, Vera DeVille, Miss Bella Trixx, Texas the Clown, belly dancers Lisa Hyde and Monifa, and you'll marvel at the Hubba Hubba Revue debut of Scandahoovian hypnotist The Amazing Sven Golli! The Uptown is located at 1928 Telegraph Avenue, right on the same block as the Sears and an entrance to the 19th Street BART station.

Have friends and family in town and don't know what to do with them? Take them out to a real burlesque show! It's good to get out of the house while learning about an art form that's in the midst of a revival. They'll thank you for it!

Happy holidays, everyone! :-)

“I've been meaning to create and perform a burlesque solo for years, but never followed through with it. Kellita's Crafting the Solo class finally made it possible. I couldn't have created and performed a burlesque solo without the structure, the feedback and, most importantly, the love that suffused this class.

Burlesque gift ideas: Holidays 2010

It's that time of year when we're all trying to figure out what gifts to present to loved ones. Sweaters, video games, bowling balls, and fruitcake may not be welcome yet again. What is one to do?

Well, if you have loved ones who are burlesque fans, there are several gifting options that are sure to please. And almost all of these gift ideas are available online!

  • One of the more unique gifts you can give this year is SF burlesque photographer Johnny Crash's new book, Burly Q: The sparkly side of San Francisco, which is available at blurb.com. This recently published book contains black-and-white photos of many of your favorite Bay Area burlesque performers, such as Sparkly Devil, Twilight Vixen Revue, Cupcake, Casey Castille, Josie Starre, Miss Honey Penny, Francine Dead, Wiggy Darlington, Lily Le Rouge, Dottie Lux, Kiss Me Kate, Bunny Pistol, Amelia Mae Paradise, and more. It would make a lovely gift for any Bay Area burlesque fan, or performer! There's also a limited time offer of free Hubba Hubba Revue show tickets with purchase. For details, please see the Johnny Crash Photography Facebook Page.

  • There are also many books about burlesque available at your local bookstore and online. Jo Weldon's The Burlesque Handbook is available online, and you can even buy if to read on a Kindle. It's been flying off the shelves since Burlesque opened. Gilded Lili: Lili St. Cyr and the Striptease Mystique by The Candy Pitch's Kelly DiNardo is a good read if you're interested in the life of Lili St. Cyr and burlesque in post-war America. The Burlesque Babes Shop has an Amazon store with more burlesque related books, including one of the only academic treatises on the subject, Robert C. Allen's Horrible Prettiness: Burlesque and American Culture.

  • Speaking of the Burlesque Babes Shop, they have various items with vintage photos of burlesque stars of yesteryear available at burlesquebabesshop.com and their affiliated CafePress and Zazzle stores. Pictures of Rose La Rose, Baby Doll, Sally the Shape, and more are available on throw pillows, wall clocks, coffee mugs, ornaments, and more!

  • The Burlesque Yule Log DVD is available at yuleagogo.com. Play this DVD, and your holiday will be filled with images of Harvest Moon, Gal Friday, Little Brooklyn, Angie Pontani, Anita Cookie, and Ms. Tickle go-go dancing to holiday tunes in front of a roaring fire. Both the DVD and a DVD and music CD gift pack are also available at Amazon.com.

  • How about a night out at a show as a gift? There's lots of holiday shows still coming up. This Friday, the Hubba Hubba Revue has their Christmas-Hanukkah Spectacular at the DNA Lounge. On Saturday, Red Hots Burlesque and Burlesque Moulin present High Holidaze at the Shattuck Down Low in Berkeley. If your sweetie loves queer burlesque, Debauchery at the White Horse Bar in Oakland has their Night of Holiday Glamor on Sunday evening. For details about these shows, please visit their websites by clicking on the show names, or see the SFBR calendar above. And for those who like to plan ahead, the Edwardian Ball is coming up January 21-22. Why not make it a romantic weekend in January?

  • Burlesque classes also make a fantastic gift! Bombshell Betty Burlesquercise, Red Hots Burlesque School of Shimmy, and the Hot Pink Feathers Showgirl Academy will probably sell you gift certificates or future classes to give as gifts for that special someone who wants to learn something new. Contact the schools using the information on their websites. SF Weekly's Best Aerial Burlesque Dance Troupe 2010, Cirque Noir, will also be offering a Burlesque Workshop in January. The gift of knowledge is a wonderful thing to give!

Bombshell Betty and Fromagique present All Kinds of Sexy Burlesque Benefit Show on Tuesday, December 14

This Tuesday, Bombshell Betty's and Fromagique's monthly show at the Elbo Room in San Francisco will benefit Bombshell Betty's Everyday Bombshell Scholarship Program.

Recently, Bombshell Betty launched her All Kinds of Sexy blog at allkindsofsexy.wordpress.com. As a body image activist, her aim is to help promote self-esteem, positive body image, and representations of sexiness of all kinds.

To help further those goals, Betty has developed the Everyday Bombshell Scholarship Program, which will provide "self-esteem enhancing classes, services and products at no charge to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and women overcoming eating disorders, physical disabilities, economic disadvantages and other intense challenges to their self-esteem."

To apply for the scholarship, please send Betty an email message using the form at allkindsofsexy.wordpress.com/contact/.

The show on Tuesday will be a fundraiser for the scholarship program. It will also be Betty and Fromagique's holiday show! So join your Mistress of Ceremonies Odessa Lil for a fun show featuring a lot of the Burlesqueteers that you've enjoyed at previous shows, and a bevy of newcomers who are making their stage debuts!

The Elbo Room is located at 847 Valencia Street in San Francisco (map). The doors open at 9:00 p.m., and the show starts at 9:30. Tickets are $10, and you may also purchase a table for two for $30. To see the show, you must be 21 or older, so bring your I.D. to show the door person as you enter the club.

A Mischievous Maidens Christmas this Friday at the Skylark Bar

It will be Christmas in the Mission this Friday, December 10, as the Mischievous Maidens put on their holiday show, "A Mischievous Maidens Christmas" at the Skylark Bar in San Francisco!

Yes, Santa, the Sugar Plum fairies, and the unwrapping of a very special present await audience members at this free show hosted by comedian Leeland! The Maidens are Lady X (pictured), Bubble Yum, and Lady Coquette.

The best tables are across from the end of the bar near the front of the stage area. You can sit on the bench seats at the back of the bar, but you'll see the show from the back. Which isn't all that bad...

If you're hungry before or after the show, there's a lot of dining options nearby. There's a plethora of taquerias, sandwich shops, pizza parlors, Japanese restaurants, and other places within walking distance.

The Skylark is located at 3089 16th Street in San Francisco (map). It's just down the street from the 16th Street BART station and MUNI bus stops. Showtime is 8:00 p.m., but get there early to get a good table or seat at the bar!
