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

This week of shows features a show with religion, another with a couple of "Hitwomen," and a fundraiser for the fight against leukemia and lymphoma.

On Friday evening at SOM in San Francisco, join "Glitter and Beats! Fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma." It'll be a fundraiser with a raffle, music by DJ ExtraLars, and burlesque performances!

Later that evening, the Baxtalo Drom show at Amnesia will feature a couple of performers from Chicago who are launching a webseries called "Hitwomen". Lady Jack and Jolie Roberson will be performing burlesque and belly dancing, and there will be lots of music for you to enjoy.

Also happening at almost the same time will be Hubba Hubba Revue's "Old Time Religion!" at the DNA Lounge. It will be an evening of spirituals and salvation... and burlesque! Miss Georgia Ruby of Australia will be one of the burlesque performers, and Chickenhead Johnson will be the musical guest.
