San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for June 16 - June 22, 2011

Here is this week's schedule of burlesque around the Bay. If you know of some shows that aren't on here, please let me know! Facebook recently remodeled their events listings, and some show invites weren't returned to my list, so I may be missing a show or two. But of the shows that are still on my calendar, there looks to be some "can't miss" events coming up.

This is the weekend that World Famous *BOB* visits the Bay Area once again. Although she lived here for a while, she's visiting from New York City, so catch her while you can! She'll be performing at Red Hots Burlesque on Friday, RHB and Burlesque Moulin's Dog and Pony Show on Saturday, and she'll be conducting workshops on Sunday. Please see previous post for details.

Another unusual event will be the Hubba Hubba Revue's Flying Saucer Beach Party on Father's Day at the DNA Lounge. What makes it unique is that it's a daytime show! Doors open at 2:00 p.m., and the show goes on until 8:00 p.m. There will be burlesque, some kind of swimsuit contest, dancing, music, special guests, and more! Bring your father to the show!

Another unique happening on Saturday will be the 1st Annual Pirate Ball at the Benicia Arsenal Clocktower. If you'll be in the East Bay this Saturday night, this will be the place to be... to see pirate burlesque! Arrrr, mateys! Among the performers will be some members of Bombshell Betty's Burlesqueteers.

For all of you folks in the Santa Cruz area, the Sin Sisters Burlesque will be once again performing at the Catalyst Club on Saturday. This time, they'll be performing in the Atrium with band Beso Negro!

Curviscious Cabaret
