Wow, that show was so great, it took weeks to write about it! That’s how we roll in LB: we’re procrastilicious!
Our Inwood show on August 22 was dedicated to one of our loyal fans, Izzy! Izzy’s had a rough time of it lately, following a liver transplant made necessary by Wilson’s disease. She’s been coming to the show with her family for a long time, and her folks came up to us and asked if we could help her out any. We live in America and as such life-saving medical procedures cost money, and they asked if we’d be willing to help raise some cash to help defray the costs.
Contrary to what you might have heard, Los Bastardos isn’t exclusively made up of heartless monsters, so we jumped at the chance to help a fan because that’s what family does, damn it. Izzy’s mom put on a extra-special belly dance performance before we kicked our show off, and we donated our profits for the evening to Izzy’s care fund. She’s a sweet kid, a skilled cosplayer and devoted fan, so if you’ve got the cash to spare swing on over to Izzy’s page at http://www.cotaforisobelt.com/ or look up “A Liver for Izzy” on Facebook!
What was the other big news for the Aug. 22 show? JOHNNY FUCKIN’ FELDER, that’s what. Yes, the man so loved by Los Bastardos it’s practically a meme at this point returned for the first time in many many moons to play everyone’s favorite asshole, Brad. That sound you were hearing during floorshow was panties throughout the theater being ripped off and flung in the general direction of the stage (and probably some man-ties too, because Rocky).
Other people were there too! Jenny was Frank and was perfect! Jessi was Janet and was adorable! Gus creeped around as Riff and Manda played the hottest domestic this side of Transylvania. Super Sexy Sean came back as Rocky, Pete played everyone’s favorite rock-and-roll zombie Eddit and the ever-talented Ali took time out of her incredibly busy schedule to play Columbia!
Making his stage debut (at least I think it’s his debut, watch this space for Leah yelling at me to fix it) was Joe as Dr. Scott! Joe spends most of his time sitting behind our lightboard, when he’s not driving across the country or building new stuff for us in his garage. What a stand-up guy! Well, what a sit-down guy, in this case. You know, because Dr. Scott.
Anyway, we’ve got a lot of stuff coming up soon! We’ve got a show at the beautiful Ridglea Theater on Sept. 18, followed by a show at the Inwood on Sept. 19! The week after we’re packing our bags and headed to wreck NYC with our drunken shenanigans at the 40th Rocky Horror Convention! Will we survive? Stay tuned and find out!
