Curvicious Cabaret's Legends and Burlesque Hall of Fame benefit show on Wednesday, May 4

This coming Wednesday, Curvicious Cabaret will be hosting a benefit show for local Legends of Burlesque and the Burlesque Hall of Fame at the Blue Macaw in San Francisco.

It will feature many of the area's top burlesque performers performing tribute numbers to the icons who have inspired them. Included will be Kitten on the Keys (Holiday O'Hara), Vera DeVille (Bettie Page), Bunny Pistol (Tura Satana), and lots more! Plus a performance by Living Legend Madame E!

There will also be super raffle prizes from Kirsten of Sedusa Studios, an exclusive studio photoshoot package by Team Lexington, free Hubba Hubba Revue tickets, photographs from Johnny Crash, and more! See the listing below for more details.

100% of the proceeds will go towards the Burlesque Hall of Fame and to helping pay for the travel expenses of local Living Legends of Burlesque Ellion Ness, Viva La Fever and Madame E as they make their way to Las Vegas this June 2-5 for the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. For more information about the Legends Challenge, please visit the BHoF website.

And note that this event is on Wednesday, and not their usual Thursday time slot. Also, the doors open at 8:00 p.m., and the show starts at 9:00, which is an hour earlier than usual.

The Blue Macaw is located at 2565 Mission Street in San Francisco (map). It's a little over two blocks from the 24th Street Mission BART station, so it's a walkable distance. Cover is $10.00, but bring some extra money for the raffle tickets and drinks. You must be 21 or older to attend, so bring your identification to show the door person!
