San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for the week of November 16 to 22, 2011

One of the joys of living in one of the larger cities with burlesque is getting to see traveling performers. This week, Le Fay of Tasmania in Australia will be swinging through our area, and she'll be performing at both nights of Red Hots Burlesque at El Rio on Wednesday and Friday. This year, she was named Miss Burlesque Hobart, which is a city in Tasmania.

If you are or were into new wave music, Curvicious Cabaret will have a burlesque tribute to some of the classics of that era. The show will be on Thursday evening at Blue Macaw in San Francisco's Mission. Visiting from Los Angeles, former Bay Area resident Mariel a la Mode will be one of the performers.

On Saturday, Burlesque Moulin's show Cirque de Pagan at the Shattuck Down Low in Berkeley will be a celebration of Goddesses and the Divine Feminine. It's their last show of this year, and they are offering a 15% discount if you buy your tickets online. See below for the details.

Debauchery will be having their monthly show on Sunday at the White Horse Inn in Oakland, and this one will be supporting Project TransAction, which is an independent leatherworking and screenprinting company.

On Monday, Bombshell Betty and her Burlesqueteers will be bringing their show featuring sports-themed burlesque to the Uptown Club. If you missed this show when it was at the Elbo Room in San Francisco, this will be your last chance to be an athletic supporter!

Enjoy your week!
