Los Bastardos, despite all pretenses, do have hearts buried deep below all of our grumps. And occasionally, we like to support causes for genuinely good people and organizations.
For our show at the Inwood tomorrow, it will be dedicated to beautiful Izzy.
Izzy is a young and stunning girl, recently diagnosed with Wilson’s Disease, and as a result had to have a liver transplant about a month ago. As anyone who has tried to buy body parts on the deep web knows, organs and all their medical expenses aren’t cheap. Izzy’s family is now burdened with the cost of her bills, and have launched a campaign to help alleviate some of that burden.
Tomorrow night, be sure to bring any spare change to help them with that cost. We will be accepting donations, sharing our prop pack/glowstick/boss tattoo/general delicious Rocky Horror goody profit with them, and we’re doing our best to sell as many seats as possible to help Izzy and her family with everything they could need.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO COME TOMORROW- You can still help. Izzy’s family has a website dedicated to her at http://www.cotaforisobelt.com/and everyone is invited to peruse her page A Liver for Izzy for any key updates.
Remember, you can buy your tickets in advance online RIGHT HERE! Show starts at midnight, we can’t wait to see you!
It’s Friday! And today it’s gonna be Fantastic Friday! So as you may know, this is the 40th Anniversary year of Rocky Horror’s theatrical release. And so, there is going to be a BIG ASS CONVENTION in New York City, and many of us are going to this convention! One of the cool things about a convention is that they do an “All Star Cast” for the Saturday night showing of Rocky, so people from casts all around the country submit auditions for roles, and few are chosen.
Two of our Lady Bastards are in the running!!! Be excited!!! Ali is in the running for Brad Majors, and Patricia (dear to our hearts but currently out of state, but still performing) is vying to be a Magenta! Check out their audition videos, and if you are going to the convention, then be sure to log onto www.rhps40.com and vote vote vote your hearts out!!!

Take the loud, rowdy and likely hammered crowd from last week at the Texas Theatre and multiply it several times over, and you’d have something approximating the screaming hordes that filled the Ridglea Theatre on Aug. 8. What a show! What a crowd! What a great venue to watch us in and get summarily drunk!
We always try to bring a little bit extra to the Ridglea, it being such a classy joint and all. Luckily the lovely ladies of the Glitterati Revue joined us to open the show with several burlesque acts for your enjoyment. It’s like stripping, but way classier. Especially when you’re wearing nothing but pasties and a monocle. (Note: I don’t know if this has been done or not, but if it hasn’t, you’re welcome ladies)
LB kicked off our show with a set of pre-shows both old and new, including Baldwin doing “Jizz in my Pants,” Leah and several other cast gentlemen doing “Call Me Maybe,” several lovely cast ladies surrounding Pete for “Peacock,” and unfortunately the return of “Soccer Practice,” this time with Mason playing the part of the poor straight man falling to Sean the Gay Pimp’s clutches. It wasn’t me this time, so I consider it a success!
This week’s Virgin games was “Fuck Like a Bastard,” in which virgins race Bastards to see who could pop balloons with their hideous pelvic gyrations. The Bastards won (naturally) but we gave prizes to the virgins anyway because, well, Jason brought a bigass can of yams and he didn’t want to take it home.
Performing in the Ridglea is always unique, because the staff there treats us like rockstars. We, in turn, do our best to put on a rock star show, and our cast did not disappoint. Everyone was on point this week, especially our newest Janet, Jessi. She really knocked us out of our seat! Well, not us, some other guy. I think he’s okay, because there’s many worse things that can happen to you than getting knocked to the floor by a pretty young lady.
Other things happened as well! Brooklyn did the lift! Sean carried Jenny legs first for death scene! People laughed at my Mad Max reference! One of the really hot Transies took her pants off! This is just a sampling of the fun you missed out on! But don’t fret, we’re coming back to Dallas for our Aug. 22 show at the Inwood Theatre!
Los Bastardos: same great taste, less filling.

We could get used to these early shows. Kicking off the proceedings at 10:30 p.m. gives us enough time to put on an awesome show, thrill an audience, pack up, get some food in us and get home before sunrise. The audience last Saturday at the Texas Theatre seemed to approve as well, as they were one of the most excited and energetic crowds we’ve had in a long time!
That or it was the booze. Or the historic venue. Or the fact that our cast is easily the best looking in Texas. Either way, the next crowd has big shoes to fill.
One of the highlights of this week’s pre-show antics was the magical box of butts! Somehow, we got a hold of a box full of small foam butts. There was no way we could keep this treasure trove to ourselves, so not only were the little foam butts given away as virgin game prizes, but Alex just started throwing tiny butts at random audience members. See? When you come to a Los Bastardos show, you’re bound to get a little ass.
Speaking of virgin games, this week marked the return of a classic LB game, where our contestants have to Lady and the Tramp a twizzler between the two of them. Brooklyn found the perfect couple of frat bros to awkwardly do it, while two girls went at it in a version of the game we call “Please Just Do It.” Everybody wins!
The bubbly-as-always Jenny played Frank, once again playing the character probably the most unlike how she is in real life. Gus and Jenni played everyone’s least favorite innocents Brad and Janet, while cast veterans Jon and Megaaaaan played Riff and Magenta. Brooklyn returned as Columbia, and nailed “the lift” better than ever before, with more than a little help from Pete as Eddie. Brooklyn dealt with the bird, and dealt with it hard.
We’re keeping this party going this Saturday at the Ridglea Theatre, with special guests Glitterati Revue putting on a burlesque set before our show! Doors open at 8 with the burlesque show starting at 8:45, and we’ll hit the stage at 10! Get your tickets now, because it’s going to be one hell of a show!
