All-star burlesque benefit! 4/26
Sparkly Devil and Little Minsky's Present: A Benefit for Burlesque Legends and Exotic World!
Saturday, April 26
Club Deluxe, 1511 Haight, San Francisco, CA
The shining stars of San Francisco burlesque have come together to raise funds for three venerable living legends of burlesque: Holiday O'Hara (San Francisco), Lottie the Body (Detroit), and Toni Elling (Detroit)!The Burlesque Hall of Fame
is a nonprofit organization and the ONLY burlesque museum on the planet, and home to the venerable Exotic World Weekend.
Every June, hundreds of burlesque performers - from living legends to budding beauties - converge upon Las Vegas for the annual Exotic World Pageant, to shimmy, shake, and overtake Sin City!
Lottie, Toni and Holiday were all burlesque performers in the 1960s and will be guests of honor at this year's event in Las Vegas. 100% of the proceeds for this benefit show will go towards their travel costs, and the remaining amount will be donated directly to Exotic World.
Please help us get these amazing women out to Las Vegas so they can share some authentic burlesque history with today's current performers!
Check out this star-studded lineup!

It’s time to bust out your Ouija boards, infrared cameras and EMF meters because this time around, San Francisco’s most belligerent puppets are going GHOST HUNTING!Show Synopsis:
When Wesley witnesses an appearance by a chronically masturbating poltergeist, his friend Hatchet the Velociraptor decides to launch CRAPS (the California Regional Association of Paranormal Science) to investigate it. But is Hatchet really interested in the paranormal, or is this just another excuse for a money-making scam? Find out this Spring at Fat City! Guest starring at this event will be musical chanteuse Allison Lovejoy, Uni & Her Ukelele, New York burlesque performer Dottie Lux and circus artists kSea Flux and Anastasia with a special appearance by Miss Bella Trixx!.Shadow Circus uses life-sized latex puppets to create a seething underworld of drugged-up dinosaurs, giant cockroaches and bizarre mythological beasts and engages them in scripts full of pop-culture parody and social satire.
