San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for March 31 - April 6, 2011

This coming week will see the arrival of the Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque on the Go-Go from Brooklyn! They've arrived in the south of our state and are making their way north. See them this Monday at the Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club, and on Tuesday at Club Deluxe for a special edition of a Little Minsky's show! The troupe will then be off to visit Santa Rosa and Sebastopol on Wednesday and Thursday.

Otherwise, the week ahead has some exciting things happening locally. On Friday, there will be a Haight Street Hop happening at the Milk Bar in San Francisco. There will also be the Red Hots Burlesque weekly show kicking off earlier in the evening. Then across the Bay, the First Friday Follies will be bringing us a Zombie Easter in 3-D at the Stork Club! Oh my, what will that entail?

Saturday night will see the Hubba Hubba Revue bringing back their Cabaret Perilous at the Uptown Club. They'll have the Squidling Brothers Circus Sideshow from Philadelphia to entertain the crowd!

Hubba Hubba Revue brings back the '90s this Friday, March 25

The 1990s. It was a time when the internet became popular. Grunge came to mean a type of rock music. And it was a time when cell phones got really small and popular! And this Friday at the DNA Lounge, the Hubba Hubba Revue is reviving all of these memories in their show, "Hubba Hubba Revue: The 90's Show!"

It'll be a show filled with fun and laughter. Join host Kingfish as he will introduce each performer, whether it's pole acrobat Kara Nova or Sparkly Devil. And he will do that for every performer! Plus the band will be 120 Minutes. Hooray!

So catch the spirit by wearing some of those grunge flannel shirts and some of those funky jeans. And bring you ear plugs, as the music may get pretty loud! The doors will open at 9:00 p.m., and the show will start at 10:00. The DNA Lounge is located at 375 11th Street in San Francisco (map).

There's lots of parking space up 11th Street near Harrison. Just get there early so you won't have to struggle to find a good parking space. And if you get there between 9:00 and 9:30, your tickets will be just $10.00! Otherwise, cover is $15.00. Buy from dnalouge.com in advance and it'll be just $12.00!

Johnny Crash and Dixie DeLish model at Dr. Sketchy's SF this Tuesday, March

This Tuesday evening, photographer Johnny Crash and Dixie DeLish will be the models at Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco at 111 Minna Gallery!

You may recognize Johnny as one of the photographers who is snapping pictures of the performers at many burlesque shows and other events around the Bay Area. He's also the author of Burly Q:The sparkly side of San Francisco, a book of his burlesque photography. But this Tuesday, the tables will be turned and Johnny will be the model, along with Dixie DeLish.

This Tuesday's session of Dr. Sketchy's will coincide with Sketch Tuesdays, so it'll get crowded. If you know that you'll be attending Dr. Sketchy's, you'll want to purchase your tickets in advance via drsketchyssf.com (the PayPal links below are the same ones on the Dr. Sketchy's site). So get your tickets before they sell out! Tickets will be will call, so your name will be on a list at the door.

111 Minna Gallery is located at 111 Minna Street in San Francisco (map). The event starts at 7:00 p.m., but you'll want to get there early to get a decent place from which to sketch. Tickets are $10.00 general admission, and $7.00 for students and teachers (bring your I.D. to show at the door when you pick up your tickets). Artists attending will need to be 21 or older.

The Passing of Eddie Dane on Thursday, March 10

Yesterday, burlesque and variety show producer and emcee Eddie Dane passed away. He was 42.

Eddie, who was partners with Kingfish in the Hubba Hubba Revue for the past 4 1/2 years, was also the producer of Dane's Dames, one of the first neo-burlesque troupes in the county.

Producer, performer and author Michelle Baldwin wrote about her remembrances of meeting Eddie at one of the first Tease-O-Ramas in her blog, Shimmy Shaker.

At last night's Curvicious Cabaret debut, there were a lot of remembrances of and tributes to Eddie Dane. Producer Sparkly Devil closed the show by performing one of Eddie's favorite numbers. She posted the following message yesterday about Eddie's passing in several Yahoo! Groups. It provides information about Eddie's passing.

I know some of you already know, but for those that don't: San Francisco producer and MC Eddie Dane passed away today. He was 42.

Eddie was the founder of Dane's Dames, one of the very first neo-burlesque troupes in the country. Some of you remember him from the very first Teaseorama in New Orleans. He went on to produce San Francisco's Spectacular Spectacular, and Hubba Hubba Revue.

I know this comes as a shock to many. Eddie has struggled with heart problems over the past 4 years, and recently those issues were compounded by kidney failure. Eddie was in the hospital for the past 6 weeks, and today he died very peacefully, surrounded by his family and loved ones.

Eddie was one of the founding members of our community; a hilarious comedian, a fantastic MC, and an all around bad ass guy. He leaves behind many who loved him and were greatly inspired by him. He will be dearly missed by us all.

--Sparkly

If there will be any public memorial or tribute shows, I'll post them here. In the meantime, there will be a Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown in Oakland next Monday. The details are in the calendar above and in the weekly round-up of shows.

Eddie will be greatly missed.
