Cage Match: La Catrin Vs. Josh Groban

La Catrin
La Catrin

Ladies in gentlemen, on Saturday night a battle will be waged for your very musical souls. In this corner, weighing in at 100 lbs. soaking wet and tied to a brick, the golden-throated king of all adult contemporary, that guy from Glee. Mr. Josh Groban.

And in this corner, draped in black and exuding exciting eldritch pop music from every orifice, the Duchess of Darkness, the laughing darkness herself, our own La Catrin!

Cue the entrance music, this is the Cage Match!

Rocks Off: La Catrin, can you tell the millions of Houstonians reading this blog why they should spend their hard-earned recession dollars on your goth-pop extravaganza than on the show of Mr. Groban?

Upcoming Events

La Catrin: Who's Josh Groban?

RO: That guy from the first season of Glee.

LC: I don't watch Glee.

RO: One of the many reasons we love you.

LC: Let's get something straight, La Catrin and the Love and Terror Cult is a movement. Get down or move around. You're here because you want to be. We're not going to "ask" you to join us. The choice is yours.

RO: But what if people prefer something... softer? Less offensive? What if they demand something that won't scare them?

LC: I'm not concerned with preferences. It is what it is. You're either down or not.

RO: What does your show have that his doesn't?

LC: One word: Me!

RO: Strong words, La Catrin. Strong words, indeed. Mr. Groban, do you have anything to say?

Josh Groban (from "February Song"): Forgive me if I slip away.

RO: Yeah, I'd run if I were you.

La Catrin plays with Walter Jones, Eleven Eleven, Divorcee, Ceeplus Bad Knives, Cuba Gooding Jr., G-Wizz, and Stephen Farrell at the Spaced Out Danse Party Saturday, May 14, at the Mink. Josh Groban plays the same night at the Toyota Center.
