The El Vez and Rosie Flores Merry MeX-mas Show

AP KRYZA
9 pm., Monday December 16 | $15.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 
[FELIZ NAVIDAD] Some holiday traditions are pretty inexplicable. Take, for example, the annual appearance of El Vez, a man who looks like a cross between Marc Anthony and John Waters decked out in a red jumpsuit, and who spends an entire show yowling out rocked-out Christmas songs with ironic changes—like, say, “Brown Christmas”—as a bunch of inflatable Navidad shit blows around the stage. It’s a well-honed shtick: Vez has 20 years of experience and 12 albums under his belt. The last was in 2002, right before he said “fuck it” and went on hyperactive autopilot. But as far as holiday shows go, well, El Vez kicks the piss outta the Lawrence Welk Players.

Where: Star Theater
Address: 13 NW 6th Ave.
