Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013's Lowdown

OK, Tuesday. Let's see … karaoke … couple of cribbage tournaments … Earth First! rally … Oh! Here we go! Chicano Elvis impersonator! Well, that has to win now, doesn't it? 

Yes, for the last 25 years or so, Robert Lopez has been making audiences swoon with his Mariachi-meets-the-King persona El Vez. (See the YouTubage below if you'd really like to feeeeeel this gimmick.) Do tear-away gold lamé suits do it for you? Than you're gonna need to get to the Jambalaya tonight, son! Sharing the stage will be Mexican-American rockabilly queen Rosie Flores and local rock 'n' roll girl group The Lost Luvs. This is too much for Tuesday. Other goodies in your Lowdown below.
