Dangerous Curves Ahead: Tuesday in San Francisco, Thursday in Sebastopol

This is just a reminder that the Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque on the Go-Go tour is coming to a town near you! I've posted information on tomorrow's show at the Uptown in Oakland, but here's the rest of the information about their tour of the area.

Who is Dangerous Curves Ahead? They are five of the best known, most popular, and award-winning members of New York's burlesque community who have gotten together and are touring the West Coast this spring. Clams Casino, Anita Cookie, GiGi La Femme, Darlinda Just Darlinda, and Minnie Tonka are hitting the road and bringing their signature acts to stages on the West Coast. Hooray! If you've been reading about current burlesque artists in America, you've surely heard of these burlesque firecrackers!

On Tuesday, April 5, they'll be performing at Club Deluxe in San Francisco, located at 1511 Haight Street (map). It's a show being produced by Douglas Good of Little Minsky's fame, and it's being hosted by Scotty the Blue Bunny! The doors will open at 8:00 p.m., and the show will start at 9:00. Tickets will be $10.00, and you'll need to be at least 21 years of age to attend. Get there early to find a good seat!

Dangerous Curves Ahead - Little Minsky's Special Edition

Dangerous Curves Ahead, nationally renowned touring burlesque troupe from Brooklyn, hits San Francisco for a special edition Little Minsky's night of saucy shenanigans hosted by the notoriously tall and irrepressible Scotty the Blue Bunny. Dangerous Curves Ahead combines the choice talents of five ferociously fabulous long-time darlings of the New York burlesque scene who've been heating up glittery hot spots around the world as soloists and producing stellar sold-out shows at home when not touring the country as a troupe. So let's have a warm welcome for the charmingly inebriated and adorable Anita Cookie, the curvaceous and clever Clams Casino, the flamboyantly delightful Darlinda Just Darlinda, the stunningly gorgeous Gigi La Femme and sensational sparkling sexpot Minnie Tonka. It's a full steamy show of shimmy and shake from Dangerous Curves Ahead with lively tunes from Eugene Warren's Jazz Ensemble throughout the night. We'll see you at the bar...
