This Saturday at Oakland's Cafe Van Kleef - Burlesque n' Brass : Holiday Edition!

The Hot Pink Feathers will be having their holiday Burlesque n' Brass show this Saturday, December 10, at Cafe Van Kleef in Oakland!

Although Head Feather Kellita remains on her Bloody Sparkling '11 European Romp through Rome, Paris, and Zurich, the rest of the Feathers will celebrate the holidays with their musical cohorts Blue Bone Express. It's a great show to take a date or meet up with friends. And if you get there early, you'll be able to get a seat near the stage. During some sets it's a floor show where the dancers dance right in front of you!

Cafe Van Kleef is at 1621 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland (map), very close to the 19th Street Oakland BART station. Doors open at 8:30 p.m., and the show is scheduled to start at 9:30. Entry is $10.00, and tips are warmly welcome.

More About Burlesque N Brass:
Dubbed "the coolest jazz brass band in Northern California" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland-based Blue Bone Express exposes the Bay Area to a type of jazz rarely heard beyond the Mississippi Delta. Combined with award-winning Hot Pink Feathers’ World Carnaval Cabaret dance, this explosive cabaret performance fuses music and dance traditions spanning the early-1900's New Orleans parades to the showgirl plumage of 1950's Rio de Janeiro Carnaval, the culture-clash hilarity of the '70s and '80s, and pushing through the present-day post-modern meltdown that is downtown Oakland.

“If you've never had the pleasure of seeing burlesque dancing performed to live jazz, then this is the place to start. It's like slugging down a pint of Uncle Peppy's moonshine after ten years of Nestea. It's sexy, spunky, sassy retro fun with all the heart and soul of Rio de Janeiro and the French Quarter, right there in downtown Oaktown. If you're looking for the perfect date, the perfect diversion, or just a chance to see an eminently sexy group of gifted hoofers grinding to hot jazz played by true enthusiasts, order a whiskey sour and settle into your seat for one of the best evenings the Bay Area has to offer.” --Thomas Roche for
