This Friday May 29th!

Doors @7, Show @ 8. $5.

As part of the Magic Bus film series...

it's Hershel Gordon Lewis' masterdreck Blast-Off Girls (1967), the only rawk and roll movie to feature Colonel Sanders. Seriously.

ALSO: The Game (1966) , a Canadian Sex Ed Film that hits closer to home than anything you've seen and is 100% garage rawk to the max. This one has it all, a truly overlooked gem on 16mm from the private collection of Jon Bastian.

BUT THAT's NOT ALL:
Stay for live renditions of the hits from Blast-Off Girls performed by local "celebrities." Or do I mean: "performed" by "local" "celebrities." ???

Magic Bus, MAY 29 = The Blast Off Girls!

One more thing!

Just found this nice review of several burlesque shows in the Bay Area. Odessa Lil has a number of quotes!

The tail end of the performance included an ensemble dance with the recently
graduated Burlesqueteers. "They're like Mouseketeers only they don't cry
when you tell them to take their clothes off," said Emcee Lil'.


har har.
What else is happening?

Brett and I have been recording a series of "radio plays" with the amazing folks of The Hermetic Order of Arcana. Not sure when those will be ready, but brace yourself for a thrilling set of 13 retro-futuristic tales full of intrigue and the supernatural. More on that one day soon!

I (Odessa Lil, I mean...) hosted the Big Top Magazine one year anniversary show Saturday at Julie's Supper Club. All kinds of indie circus acts, including a man named Chris Dunn who juggled some very sharp knives. Nicely done. Oh Carney Folk!

And the week prior was the awesome De Young Warhol Live party. I got to lay around on the magic couch as Nico and even introduce Amoeba SF's resident Velvet Underground band Nihilist Outlook and Grace. There's nothing like watching toddlers dance to "Heroin" and "Sister Ray." It was a real honor to be part of a De Young function! Here's to more KLASSY gigs! Yeehaw!

"Nico" and "Lou":
