If you missed our show, you should feel bad because YOU MISSED MANET! (clap, clap, clap clap clap)
That’s right, folks: Los Bastardos rolls with the punches and when our original Janet couldn’t perform, we made do with what we had. Specifically, Gus stepped in as Janet and in his place as Brad was Johnny Fuckin’ Felder! We don’t do legit drag shows too often, and Manet is a rare “treat.” Maybe treat isn’t the right word, but “cackling horror” didn’t roll off the fingers as well. Take it from someone who had to be on stage with him; it’s almost impossible to keep a straight face watching.
That’s just how it goes, though. The show must go on. No matter if your Janet is a dude, or if the gong mallet breaks, or if your Riff doesn’t work his fall at the end of Time Warp and knocks the wind out of himself like an old fat fuck.
What a crowd, too! Our Dallas fans love to wait to wait until the last minute to utterly mob our show, giving us all heart attacks. What they may lack in punctuality they make up for it in enthusiasm. From the amazing, roof-raising virgin game on they were at a fever pitch all night.
You never know what you’re gonna see at a Los Bastardos show! Pictures will be up later, but nothing beats seeing it live! BE THERE MAY 21!
