Very Be Careful and Mucho Music are joining forces to present a very unique New Year’s Eve experience this year in the heart of Echo Park. NOT the same old party in a night club, but a special party in a historic Los Angeles landmark!
Ring in the new year with some of your closest friends at a new lovely intimate location to the sounds of vallenato cumbia band Very Be Careful at midnight and the Mucho Wednesdays DJs (Frank Leopold, Pitxu and Noir) all night long! Mucho’s DJ Pitxu told us “you know how I do anniversary parties, you know how I do Cinco De Mayo, now I’m doing MY New Years, and it’s going to be Andy Kaufman meets Tito Puente. People are going to talk about the 31st for years to come…..for one reason or another. Ominous…no…..optomisitic…si si!”
Also: one-of-a-kind live puppet show performed by the Bob Baker Marionette Theater company, free finger food and more.
About the Bob Baker Marionette Theater :
“The theater was recently voted in by the Los Angeles City Council as an official Los Angeles historical landmark!! The Bob Baker Marionettes have performed around the globe (even on Navy ships and submarines), with an inventory of some three thousand puppets. Like Bil Baird before him, Bob Baker is an American pioneer in the art of puppetry.
The theater was built in 1953. It is a one-story commercial building of modern Vernacular architecture. The theater is believed to have been built as a workshop for Academy Award-winning special effects artist M.B. Paul. In 1961, Baker and Alton Wood purchased the property for use as a live puppet theater and permanent showcase for hand-crafted marionettes.
The Bob Baker Marionette Theater is reportedly the longest-running puppet theater in the United States.
During the June 2009 Los Angeles City Council meeting at which the theater received its historic monument designation, Baker’s marionettes made an appearance, the puppets made an appearance.
This is a one time event where every aspect is unique and memorable!
