El Vez Mex-Mas

Detroit Bar

El Vez (formerly known as Zeros punk rocker, Robert Lopez) is the undisputed king of the Hispanic Elvis impersonators, and don’t think you can casually step on his blue suede zapatos. While Elvis is his grand novelty achievement—mixing up the Memphis boy’s standards with Chicano politics in “Immigration Time” (“Suspicious Minds"), “En El Barrio,” and others—he also delivers some muy caliente renditions of Bowie, Dylan and Iggy Pop. This month, join him and his Elvettes for some holiday cheer that’s sure to include glittery fashions and the timeless classics “Poncho Claus” and “Brown Christmas”—and don’t forget to break out that awesome rompope.
