El Vez in Minneapolis by Ann Treacy

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is going to see El Vez with Billy and Anita. This year I signed us up to get a picture with El Vez before the show. So we’re kind of like the famous people. Before the show we had a yummy dinner at Solera. And we got a sneak peek at life in Sex in the City watching the other people at the bar. I’m pretty sure we were the only ones drinking beer and certainly ate more than anyone else at the bar.

Back to El Vez – the show was really different this year. To start he played with Los Straightjackets – not after. It was a great mix. I tried to take some video during the slow songs; I danced during the fast songs. The Elvettes were new. Billy was pretty quick to pick up on that one. He had to move during the last few songs to be nearer her favorite Elvette – Lisa Maria.

There were lots of great costume changes. I was super sad that there wasn’t a secret set after the holiday show – but it was a great show. What was fun about the after show was that there was an ages disco. There was some really awkward dancing; one guy brought his own hula hoop; and there was one good break dancer.

And here are some more videos:
