About our FEATURED Performer:
La Chica Boom is a performance artist, ecdysiast, and community organizer that explores Chican@ iconography, issues of race, gender and sexuality. Through the practice of ethnic drag, alternative dance, theatre, performance art, neo-burlesque, and clowning, La Chica Boom provides a biting satire that points to contemporary and historical escandalos.

ABOUT OUR DEBUT PERFORMERS:
Nomy Lamm http://www.nomylamm.com/

Kelly "Killer Killy" Dwyer is a shock-mock-punk-rock comedic performance artist from NYC. She has been featured on Comedy Central, David Letterman, Funny or Die and FunnynotSlutty.com. Killy's band: "KILL THE BAND" is set to record their first full length album in November and the "making of the album" will be the subject of a documentary by filmmaker Craig Schober. She produces and hosts ALTER EGO - Vaudeville Surreal, NYC's #1 monthly alternative variety show and is the co-executive producer and host of The Trachtenburg Variety Show at the world famous Peoples Improv Theater. www.KELLYBDWYER.com

Just a home town gal, Rena LaMarr knew someday the stage would be hers. The costumes from her grandparent’s trunk of forgotten memories, called to her as she played in the satin and silk. Rena fantasized about the adagio routines they performed up and down the east coast. After years of dance classes and “The School of Hard Knocks”, she made her debut with Boxcar Burlesque in 2010.
From the time Rena hit the stage, she has dazzled the audiences with her hand adorned costumes and her sultry routines. Her Rubenesk figure flows from seductive fan dances to bawdy Blues numbers. Rena LaMarr always leaves the audience satisfied but calling for more.

If you would like a three-course prix fixe dinner, the cost will be $40.00. The dinner choices are listed below, so you can decide now if you would like the dinner option. If you would like a floor seat to see the show only without the dinner, tickets are $15.00. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/202938.

RED HOT BURLESQUE & DISCO VOLANTE PRESENT "TATAS FLAMBE TOUR" DINNER, PERFORMANCE & STORY TELLING

San Francisco burlesque legend and innovator, Satan’s Angel will perform and recount the fascinating stories of her life and career with excerpts from the play "Have Tassels Will Travel” accompanied by a multimedia retrospective of her life. This performance relives the wild exploits of her life and times, from dating Clint Eastwood to Janis Joplin. The nights begins with local sensation, Francine Dead, performing with flames flicking on her flesh and ending with the only chance to see Satan's Angel doing what has made her so famous: twirling and spinning fire from her nipple tassels!

"Angel is the once, current and future Queen of Burlesque. She will always command the respect and admiration of her peers and public and while she may be closely imitated she will never be surpassed."~~ L. Thomas

"The Burlesque Stars are Stars for good reason. They are top level performers with careful foot and body movements. They reveal the female body in a beautiful and artful way. More than that. I for one, love enslaving a man's heart and body. What better mirror of me on stage, than this. It is the dance of seduction, capture and conquest. Few reach that level in Burlesque, but when you watch a true Burlesque Star, you see why she is a star. And that my dear World, is Satan's Angel."Ashley Dearman Author

Chef Douglas Bernstein creates meals centered around the highest quality seasonally available and sustainable ingredients. His cuisine reflects the attention to the craft of cooking and respect for the ingredients themselves that is the hallmark of Bay Area food. For this event, the menu reflects the late bounty of lingering summer as it looks forward to the heartier flavors of fall and winter.

San Francisco Bay Area burlesque for October 13 to October 19, 2011

Before mentioning anything else, there is a change of venue for one show. The Haight Street Hop has moved on down to Brisbane's 23 Club and is now known as simply "The Hop."

Aside from "The Diablos," the Hubba Hubba Revue's Kingfish will be the emcee, and featured roasters will include Lady Satan, Gorilla X, Kevin Hancock, Scission, Steve Hamilton, and Randy Johnson and Patina of Fromagique! With a a burlesque performance from Twinkletoes McGee.
