Heaven’s to Betsy!
Once again, ol’ Whendy here was thwarted by technology. I wrote an entry right after the 2nd Monty Python Show, and it wouldn’t publish! I hit Save a million times, but there was no saving. I also have a busted laptop with a shattered screen so….I’m ghetto like that. Ah well, it was an amazing entry and we shall have to just go on without it. Needless to say, the Monty Python show, (both of them), were epic. I woke up once again, still stained with fake blood, so you know it was a good time.
Also recent notable nights were the Mardi Gras party at Kinky Salon. And yes, it was 🙂 We Fromagique-d the hell out of them! It was packed to capacity and they all sat down like good little boys and girls ready for a story. A dirty one. Bombshell Betty, Red Velvet, Dangerous Delilah, Cinnamon Stick, Mistress Marla Spanks and myself had a blast. And drank all the Love Potion #9, which was a horrible idea…Violet Streak made a cameo appearance as our diligent, sexy Ring Master 🙂 All in all, a lovely way to spend a rainy night.
I recently go-go’d at the DNA for the Hubba Hubba Revue’s 90’s Show, which was hilarious, as I’m sure you can imagine. All of us on Team Go were dressed as the Anarchy Cheerleaders from the “Smells like Teen Spirit” music video. We had Fly Girls and Wayne and Garth….sadly, it was the first show without our usual co-host Eddie Dane 😦 He was such an important part of the scene, and he is missed.
And I’m betting he would have loved what might’ve been my favorite act of the night: Ruby White doing a strip tease to “Candle in the Wind” dressed in a voluminous wedding gown….with blood and gore all down the front of her. The song changes to Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana” and…let me say I was howling. I’m sorry, I’m sorry we all know I’m a morbid freak and that just isn’t going to change any time soon. Kara Nova did some amazing stunts on her pole, dressed as Leeloo from The Fifth Element. And no, not those “pole tricks”, way better ones! Aerialist circus performers kick ass! The next Hubba extravaganza is April 22nd, 9pm at the DNA Lounge for their San Francisco Show! And you know who else will be there? Betty and Fromagique! Also, the lovely and recently graduated Burlesqueteers will be making an appearance 🙂
“What’s on your calendar next, Whendy?” I know you’re all breathlessly waiting. Well, this Sunday the 3rd at the Milk Bar on Haight St. there shall be a Japan Relief Fundraiser Show! It makes me smile to see how often I find fellow peelers on the Fundraiser roster. We are such a giving bunch! So, this Sunday, April 4th at the Milk Bar on Haight @8:30pm the Japan Quake Benefit. All donations are going to the Red Cross! Come out and help us shake it for a good cause! And I have it on good authority that two amazing ladies will also be there, Red Velvet and Miss DANGerous Delilah, so you really shouldn’t miss this!
I don’t know about ya’ll, but April was a crazy month before it even started. My April was booked about a week ago!
Tomorrow night, April 2nd back at the lovely Uptown is Cabaret Perilous! Always full of thrills and chills, daredevils, side show and burlesque, it’s my kind of show 🙂 Doors at 9pm, and only $10!
Whew! This is what I get for not being on top of the writing! Other places you need to be are at The Uptown on April 8th ( my birthday!!) at 9pm for Los Shimmy Shakers! Great music, always a hoot, and there’s always dancing girls! The following night, April 9th I’ll be dancing with them at Benders Bar at 10pm! It is their CD release party and we got Pickles Kintarro, Bootsie La Rue, Red Velvet and myself there to entertain! I’ll be there having fun and you should too!
April 12th at the Elbo Room is the Too Many F@*%$# Bunnies Show, and there are some amazing spring time treats in store! We’ll be bunny-hoppin’ (while scantily clad) all over that joint and the solo debuts of the Intensive 1 graduates are gonna knock you socks off!
One last notable note: April 16th at the Bettie Page Store on Haight Street, the Legendary Tempest Storm will be there from 12-5pm doing a free signing! The ‘girl with the 40′ plus bust’ will be there in person and I can’t wait to talk to her! Maybe she’ll show us a trick or two 🙂 Also, I work there and I have a whole ton of fliers for this event which includes a 20% off coupon, come find me if you want some 🙂
Ok, children: I, Miss If-N’-Whendy, vow to write more promptly after shows so the topics are still relevant and not too many! Now, time for dinner and cat wrangling with Sweet Green 🙂
See you at the Burly-Q!
