San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for January 26 to February 1, 2011

This week, there are a lot of shows happening on Friday! From the weekly Red Hots Burlesque show, to a tribute to Glenn Danzig, to a cabaret show featuring sideshow acts, to a Rebel Cupcake, to a gypsy punk dance party, there will be a lot to choose from!

Will there be visiting performers? Yup! Legs Malone will be visiting from New York City, and she'll be performing at Red Hots Burlesque and Cabaret Perilous on Friday. Will she be using her famous legs to get from one venue to another? She probably can cross the bay with one stride! Miss Malone was an associate producer of the New York Sugar Shack, as well the producer of the Legs Malone Show.

Ms. Luisa of Minneapolis will also be continuing her run of performances in the Bay Area. She will also be performing at the Red Hots show, as well as Monday's Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club in Oakland. What that woman can do with a bowl of pasta! I'll never look at a spaghetti dinner the same way...

And you thought the Super Bowl hype starts early! Red Hots Burlesque thinks so too, and they've joined them! Catch the first Go Deep show this Sunday at El Rio. Burlesque, music and meatballs. The perfect pre-game accompaniment! And like crashing a tailgate party, it's free, too! Mangia!
