El Vez Brings Mr. Bob's "Unhappy Hour" To The Casbah Monday Night

Transcript

San Diego’s own Robert Lopez has lived an exciting life performing around the world, but not really as himself. He's better known, either on national television shows or opening for rock stars in a gold lamé mariachi suit, as the Mexican Elvis, El Vez.

But the Elvis parody and the gold lamé are gone this time as Robert Lopez brings a very different show to San Diego. It's still funny and it still has plenty of music. But it's about the uncertain state of the world, and the troubling aspects of middle-age.

The show is called "El Vez presents Mr. Bob with his band The San Plus, The Unhappy Hour."

Lopez performed Monday as Mr. Bob in the KPBS studio and talked about life and what inspires his music.

Lopez will be performing as Mr. Bob with his band The Sad Plus in "The Unhappy Hour" on Monday, May 14. Tickets and information can be found at www.casbahmusic.com.
