San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for April 21 - April 27, 2011

Hey, what is that Hunky Jesus doing? Ooh, that's right! He's preparing for the contest. It's time for Easter!

Along with the famous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence famous Easter in the Park: Old Habits Dye Hard at Dolores Park, there is a week of burlesque to look forward to!

This would be a good place to remind all you of you who use Twitter to keep up with the SFBR's Twitter feed (@sfpartymaster) to follow SF burlesque news. I'll post items on there that may not require a full article or are last-minute kinds of items. I'll also include items from the larger burlesque community that are of interest.

So, now back to this week's shows! There are only four on the calendar, and Alotta Boutté is in two of them on the same night: Red Hots Burlesque and the Hubba Hubba Revue's San Francisco Show on Friday! You can make like Alotta and do both shows, as the Hubba Hubba show starts an hour after the Red Hots show ends. It could make for a long evening, so rest up!

On Monday, Pink Flamingo and the Mai Tais will be performing a full set of Mary Poppins-inspired routines at the Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown in Oakland. Outstanding! In case you're wondering, Pink Flamingo is the dancer, and the Mai Tais are the band. Check out the photos on their Facebook Page, then check them out at the Uptown on Monday night.

Well, that's about it for this week. I'll be back soon with more information about shows, the activities surrounding the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2011, and more! Have a great week, everybody! :-)
