LA BAMBA 2: Hell is a Drag, premieres Saturday, April 13th at the Victoria Theater for Peaches Christs’ SF Underground Film Fest!
In it, I play Lou Diamond Phillips as Ritchie Valens. La Bamba 2 is a sequel to La Bamba, the 1987 biopic about the Chicano musician Ritchie Valens. The film, an unauthorized parody/sequel, features director Rob Fatal (in drag of himself) as the protagonist who must save his soul from a jealous gang of rock stars. Read some great interviews of Rob via CCA and Michael Varrati’s interview Ritchie Valens Rising.
