Kentucky Fried Woman's 2011 Celebrity Memorial Show at Oakland's Bench and Bar tonight

Kentucky Fried Woman's show on Sunday, December 4, will celebrate the lives of celebrities and social activists. At the Bench and Bar in Oakland, you may see acts which celebrate the lives of such famous people as Amy Winehouse, Jane Russell, Pete Postlethwaite, Al Davis, Mike Starr, Warren Christopher, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Kevorkian and more!

The show will be funny and uplifiting. It will feature performers such as Brock Cocker, Juicy D. Light, Honey Lawless, Kitty Von Quim, and many others. Hickie from Kenickie ("A hickie from Kenickie is like a Hallmark card, when you only care enough to send the very best!") is a group featuring burlesque stars such as Penny Whistle, Cherry Poppins, Sugarbush Lane, and others who I'm sure will be involved in the Jeff Conaway tribute act. With FemC Starr 69, and musical guest Alotta Boutté!

The doors will open at 7:00 p.m., and is scheduled to start at 7:30. The Bench and Bar is located at 510 17th Street in Oakland (map). Tickets are $10.00 apiece, and you're encouraged to attend in costumes related to the theme for their monthly Costume Parade!
