Words by Erin Wolf

Crappy Dracula might be a bit misunderstood, but that’s all right with them; they’re not out to win any popularity contests. They are out to release a 7″ along with Farms in Trouble before they head off on a tour of Michigan, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island.  The band has selected three tunes for their side of the vinyl that will be available tonight at Riverhorse — both a live and a documented form of the band that is as much Scratch Acid and Flipper as it is Guided By Voices and the Troggs. Fan-belt checks in with the band before they ship out.

Review by Tea Krulos

I was late for Mondo Lucha. I blame God.

As I walked in, the crowd was going crazy, as it cheered on a match between a wrestler in a goat luchador mask and a pink woman’s bathing suit and a wrestler wearing a mask styled after the frilled lizard, Chlamydosaurus kingii. I Googled it.

Backstage I passed burlesque dancer Tomahawk Tassels, as she played a wooden flute, preparing to take the stage. Upstairs, the Turner Hall Ballroom balcony had become a giant green room, and it had a post- apocalyptic variety show look that you’d expect. Wrestlers, burlesque dancers, and alternative rockers leaned on the rail, as they watched the goat and the frilled lizard body slamming and flipping each other. Clownvis, the clown Elvis impersonator, leaned on the rail in the weird light, flanked by two dudes in sunglasses. Does Clownvis really have his own security detail? (more…)
