Sorry – I have to do this. It’s not a great San Francisco place, or a hot tip, or even an event you can go to. It’s an event that already happened. But I gotta tell you about it!

Last night I went to see Charo perform. Yes, she’s still alive and looks 20, and even makes jokes about it. Here are some words for her: phenomenal, iconic, bold, crass, fun, funny, cute as hell, seasoned, heart-felt, kitschy, talented, and mostly, a master showperson. She had some of the best costumes I’ve ever seen. She had every single person at Herbst Theater in the palm of her hand.

Charo has gone back to her roots. As a child and teen, before she came to the US at age 16, she studied classical Spanish guitar with master Andres Segovia. Now that she has her own empire, half her show is dedicated to her flamenco guitar performance. She’s good!

What childhood icon do you want to see perform at Herbst Theater?

I want to see Don MacLean live and I don’t care where it is. But he has to promise not to sing American Pie. I love his more obscure work! Welcome to Blog Book Tours!
