Get out your squirt guns and playing cards because starting Thursday, October 10, The Rocky Horror Show gets a RuPaul’s Drag Race facelift at San Antonio’s historic Woodlawn Theatre. The live show will run through November 2 and can be seen on Thursdays at 8 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 11 p.m. Ticket prices range from $35 to $75 and free parking with security patrol will be available.
Irreverent and anti-establishment, The Rocky Horror Show, stars Michelle Visage as Magenta, William as Riff Raff and Alaska as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. “An institution among hundreds of cult fans, these characters are forever embedded in our hearts,” says the theatre’s artistic director Greg Hinojosa, “but we going to take you into an entirely new dimension of science fiction in this staging. Think of it as futuristic industrial grunge.”
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the iconic rock musical has traveled the world since making its humble debut at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1973. In this original horror comedy musical, a newly-engaged couple is stripped of their inhibitions in an unforgettable and shocking odyssey that begins with getting caught in a storm and seeking refuge at the home of a madcap transvestite scientist, Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

It’s only three songs, but Búho’s Beggars’ Teeth EP is a real son of a bitch anyway. Progressive post-punk rock at its most listenable, Búho plays an unusually well-sharpened, driving and pounding, midnight-pitched music that is as contemplative as it is corporeal. Guitarist and vocalist Brand Angotti directs the show from the outset, on the EP’s finest song “Body Trucks,” with a feverish and sludgy repeated chord and a nearly inaudible, screamed complaint.
Through deliberate intent or a happy production accident, these three songs are blessed by a drowning vocal effect that lends even the most severe moments an aqueous and distant feeling. This feeling is a key to the pleasantness of the sonic tension on this EP. Think of it this way — it’s that iridescent, churning and submerged feeling of The Deftones “My Own Summer.” Make sense?
Búho has its feet firmly planted in a hyper-energetic, stillness-by-speed sound — the excellent execution of which makes this album a surprise delight. This is a type of harder music that packs a consistently listenable wallop… and, for what it’s worth, I imagine it sounds fucking awesome live.
Note: the band tells El Güero that they plan to re-release this EP later this summer with some added beef. Here’s hoping they don’t take the lovely lo-fi aesthetic out of the vocals.
