Thank You, San Diego

We really packed it in last night: FISHNET FOLLIES was a blazing success!

Thank you, thank you!

All the troupes– a bit o’ Burlesque, Hell on Heels and Sultry Savage– brought such wonderful, top-quality variety of flavors! And special thanks to our friends Bombshell Betty and Randy Johnson from San Francisco and Flame Cynders from Los Angeles traveling to guest star in our inaugural show!

And may I mention, best crowd EVAR!


Stay tuned for the next show! We can’t wait for the next one!


Oh, and check out this little write-up of our show on San Diego City Beat:


Cat call

Seeing San Diego’s burlesque troupes perform together is a rare occurrence. It’s not that they absolutely hate each other; it’s just that they’re competitors—burlesque is a business, after all. At 9 p.m. Saturday, May 31, however, the laws of competition will be put aside when the Fishnet Follies come to San Diego Sports Club, 1271 University Ave. in Hillcrest. The traveling burlesque and variety show has convinced the talented and lovely ladies of San Diego’s own Hell on Hells, a bit o’ Burlesque and Sultry Savage to share a stage. And if that weren’t enough, Fishnet Follies is bringing along San Francisco’s Bombshell Betty and Mynx d’Meanor, as well as Los Angeles’ Flame Cynder. Don’t go looking for silly cat fights, though—this night is going to be all about lady love. $10. mynxdmeanor.com/presents.

Randy Johnson pointed this out to us this morning. Apparently, I’d been so intent on finalizing details for the show that I didn’t realize we’d gotten a “Pick of the Week” mention. But yay!

A couple points of clarification:
* We’re not a traveling show (well, unless you consider perhaps using a couple of different venues from time to time.) We plan to make Fishnet Follies a San Diego staple and are excited to be working with as many local performers as possible to give the city such exciting, varied entertainment! Gotta say, too– SDSC was a fantastic host for our first show. We definitely plan on having smaller-scaled shows at the venue in the future. For bigger blow-outs, we might have to look at bigger venues– the place was PACKED Saturday night!
* I’m a little wary of the implied emphasis on competition amongst the SD troupes. As a producer of and performer in the show, I felt really good about the night. It seemed like everybody was really excited to finally work together put on a hell of a show!

Love, love, love!
