You Need Coolin’

Have a Led Zep–themed burlesque Valentine's Day

Led Zeppelin and dancing babes—could there be anything more perfect?

If you’re looking for a way to spend your Valentine’s Day other than at home watching The Notebook and eating Ben & Jerry’s, look no further than the Whole Lotta Love Valentine’s Day Celebration at Aubergine.

Cabaret de Caliente promoter and performer Eva D’Lucious (above) wanted to introduce a new audience to burlesque by providing something for both men and women to enjoy. “A few ladies have emailed me that Whole Lotta Love will be their first Burlesque show,” she notes, “and a big part of the reason their partners want to attend is because we’re featuring Led Zeppelin.”

Raven-haired, tattooed lady Siren Sapphire will strut the stage to “Black Dog,” while the Scarlet Harlot plans a dance to the one and only “Immigrant Song.” Other performances include pole dancer Carrie Bare, Pearl E. Gates, the iCandy Dancers, Boylesque group Bohemian Brethren and more. Zeppelin mashups and live recordings play during intermission, while a raffle for those who bring a new book or children’s pajamas for charity offers choice prizes. Whole Lotta Love, featuring Eva herself dancing to “Dazed and Confused,” gets steamy on Thursday, Feb. 14, at Aubergine. 755 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. $15–$35. 8pm. 707.861.9190.
