Get "Frisky" with the Hot Pink Feathers in Berkeley this Saturday, May 21

It's almost time for the SF Carnaval Grand Parade, which means that it's almost time for the Hot Pink Feathers to get dressed in their costumes to dance down Mission Street! But they'll need money to buy their costumes. Feather fans don't come easy!

What will the Feathers do? Have a fundraising show, of course! This Saturday, May 21, join the Hot Pink Feathers and some special guests for "Frisky: A Hot Pink Feathers Revue and Carnaval Fundraiser" at the Shattuck Down Low in Berkeley.

The show will feature the Feathers in group and solo acts. So if you missed their big 10th birthday show at the DNA Lounge, then you won't want to miss this show!

Even if you did see that show, you'll want to catch this show to see the Feathers' special guests from Chicago, Lola Martinet of the Dolls of Doom (winner of the Burlesque Hall of Fame's Best Variety Act 2010), and Ray Gunn of the Stage Door Johnnies!

You'll also get to view the solo acts that some of the Feathers have been working on recently. Plus you'll get to see the Feathers perform "Bollywood Burlesque" and "Groovy", which is always a treat!
