San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for October 20 to October 26, 2011

This upcoming week's burlesque shows are dominated by the arrival of Satans Angel and her Ta Ta Flambe Tour. This legendary performer will be performing at Friday's Red Hots show, a Saturday evening dinner, performance, and storytelling event at Disco Volante in Oakland, and she'll be teaching a Sunday class at Viracocha in San Francisco. Also read the previous post for information about these events.

On Friday night, the world ends. Or so it will at the Hubba Hubba Revue's The End of the World show that night! Lee Presson and the Nails will be the musical guest, as Devil Doll had to pull out. But it's not the end of the world! Well, the new Rapture date is "probably" Friday, so maybe it is! The only thing that is certain, though, is that you'll have a good time at this show, end of the world or not! And if there's a next week, don't forget that the Hubba Hubba Revue has their weekly show every Monday night at the Uptown in Oakland!

There will be two opportunities to sharpen up your drawing skills at Dr Sketchy's San Francisco this week. On Saturday, the model will be Vivian de Milo outfitted Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome style. On Tuesday, Ava Lanche will be your vampire bride. Both events are at 111 Minna Gallery. You can always just go and watch, but it's usually more fun to sketch the models.

That's the roundup for this upcoming week. Enjoy!
