San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for September 1 - September 7, 2011

Labor Day weekend is upon us, which indicates the unofficial end of summer. Which also usually means the start of better weather around these parts, which means it's an ideal time to get out and catch some burlesque shows!

The new School of Shimmy Syndicate will be an after-party for the Red Hots Burlesque shows on Wednesdays at El Rio. The show will start at 10:00 p.m., after the Red Hots show.

Bombshell Betty
has moved her Haute House Burlesque show at Milk Bar to the first Friday of each month, and it's a free show now! Check out this month's show which will also feature sideshow act Molotov and musical guests Vagabondage.

Oakland Pride is also happening this Sunday, and Kentucky Fried Woman has her after-party at Bench and Bar, with the doors opening at 7:00 p.m. There will be performances from The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins, Dottie Lux, Alotta Boutté, Scotty the Blue Bunny, and more!

On Labor Day, the Hubba Hubba Revue show at Oakland's Uptown Club will feature performances by performers from Sacramento's Sizzling Sirens Burlesque Experience! Catch some of the hottest ecdysiasts from the Central Valley without having to stop for gas in Vacaville!

And First Friday Follies will be having their Blue Velvet Highway Folllies show at Oakland's Stork Club! If you're a David Lynch fan, you won't want to miss this show!

So there's a lot going on this upcoming week in SF Bay Area burlesque. Enjoy the shows. Happy Labor Day!
