El Vez @ First Avenue

From today's A-List: "Visually, 'Mexican Elvis' is the Clash and Public Enemy re-imagined as a Zapatista Las Vegas revue, complete with pompadour, pencil 'stache, and female dancers. Musically, he's the P.D.Q. Bach of rock 'n' roll. His sonic and political jokes are so fast and rich, they're a pop-culture nut's dream: One medley from a previous 'Mex-Mas' tour quoted Jimi Hendrix's 'Fire,' Elvis's 'Burning Love,' the Doors' 'Light My Fire,'and the Trammps' 'Disco Inferno' within seconds--a live mash-up that would fall flat if his band weren't so good. Expect a Santa outfit among the numerous costume changes."
