Mark Guerrero Videos - Page 37

Bootleg Theater
Los Angeles, California
May 26, 2012

     On Saturday, May 26th, there was a concert following the show, "Evangeline, The Queen of Make Believe," featuring Cava, and special guests Thee Commons, Mark Guerrero, and Little Willie G. "Evangeline, The Queen of Make-Believe" is a play written by Louie Perez of Los Lobos, Rose Portillo, and Theresa Chavez, which played at the Bootleg Theater in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles.  The initial run was May 3-27, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  Due to popular demand, two shows were added, Friday, June 1st, and Saturday, June 2nd.  The play, which is inspired by Los Lobos' song "Evangeline," is about an East L.A. devoted daughter by day and Hollywood go go dancer by night.  The story takes place in the 1960s amid the political turbulence of the Viet Nam War and the East L.A. student walkouts, featuring the songbook of Louie Perez and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos.  The music is performed by the band Cava offstage, with Cava's lead vocalist Claudia Gonzales brilliantly singing the songs on stage amongst the actors.  At the concert on May 26th, Mark Guerrero performed his first recording, "Get Your Baby" by Mark & the Escorts, his 1972 Capitol Records single "I'm Brown," and his father's pachuco classic, "Los Chucos Suaves.  The video of "I'm Brown" is not included below because the video camera shut off in the middle of the song.
