San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for April 7 - April 13, 2011

There's a whole bunch of shows coming down the pike for the next few weeks, so I'll announce a change for the posting of events. Since there may be three or four shows for some nights coming up, I'll just post about one or two of them, depending on what seems appropriate. If you are a show producer or performer and would like your show highlighted with an individual posting, let me know via email, sfbr AT gmx DOT com. Thanks! And now on with this week's schedule!

Red Hots Burlesque is expanding their burlesque coverage this week, with their monthly "Go Deep" show starting at El Rio on Thursday, April 7. It'll be a lube wrestling show, with burlesque performances! Sounds fun! Then on Saturday, April 9, they'll mark the premiere of Dr. Sketchy's East Bay with an event at the Layover Lounge in Oakland. Their guests/models will be The Can-Cannibals! Woot! And, of course, their weekly show at El Rio will happen on Friday evening, as it usually does.

They'll be having a show Thursday night with Risk-A Cabaret at the Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol. It should be a great show in what used to be an abbey! Don't forget to wish Jodi of Risk-A Cabaret a happy birthday, too!

Curvicious Cabaret will be putting their second show together on Thursday at the Blue Macaw in San Francisco, which will be a tribute to George Carlin. This is a swell idea for a show with some very talented performers!
