Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque performs this week at Red Hots Burlesque

New York-based troupe Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque will be stopping at El Rio in San Francisco for Red Hots Burlesque this week!

Consisting of Lucida Sans, Kinky Demure, Gemma Stone, Angelique A'LaMode, Debra Delorean, Izebel Vivant, and Avian Rush, this troupe is on a national tour. They started out as undergraduates at SUNY New Paltz as Alpha Psi Ecdysia, then became Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque upon their graduation.

Also performing will be RHB's June featured performer Bunny Pistol and Babraham Lincoln. The guest hosts will be The Stripping Granny and Lady Satan. See below for the lineups for each show.

Also, at 5:30 p.m. on Friday before the show at El Rio, Lucida Sans will be teaching a class called "Story Telling Through Burlesque." For more information about this class, please visit and click on "School of Shimmy." To make reservations, please email or phone 415-672-4735.

Red Hots Burlesque

Come with your sense of humor, get ready to hoot and holler because Red Hots Burlesque brings you the "city's best" bump and grind at the "happiest hour"!

Joining our cast of hellions we have: from barely legal to legally bare, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York's ragtag team of art school delinquents. Not your average showgirls, they're rhinestones in the rough--anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice.

Formerly known as Alpha Psi Ecdysia, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque was founded in 2008 as the nation's premier undergraduate burlesque troupe. While based on the campus of the State University of New York at New Paltz, Rhinestone Gorilla lived a double life as an educational institution and a professional producing entity. On the New Paltz campus, Rhinestone Gorilla dedicated itself to teaching burlesque history, the politics of neo-burlesque and the practice of burlesque performance; off-campus, Rhinestone Gorilla was the underage darling of the New York stripperformance art scene, getting naked on school nights at The Slipper Room, Rififi, Public Assembly, and Sugarland and in venues in LA, SF, Boston, and beyond. Though frequent subjects of controversy and police activity, Rhinestone Gorilla's students on the SUNY campus--who have inherited the name Alpha Psi Ecdysia--remain the only state-sponsored strippers in the nation.
