Mr. Lobo

I don't usually post about MOBS because I assume that most of you are on the mailing list, but just in case, they are having an interesting event this weekend. Don't let this post make your forget to check the post below and fill in the poll and go to the Bananas and Baby show! Here's Lurch's email:

Hi there! Sorry this is a bit last minute, but Cinema Insomnia's Mr. Lobo is about to go on the air, as I type this! He's a featured interview on Capital Public Radio's show, "Insight" today (Friday) between 10 and 11 AM. Listen in at KXJZ 90.9 FM or online at and click on "Listen Live" under "NPR News and Jazz!"

Also, pick up the Sacramento Bee tomorrow (Saturday) to check out the feature article on Mr. Lobo in the Metro section!! And take a look at the nifty Event Spotlight on Saturday's show in this week's News and Review! It's a Lobo media blitz, I tell ya!

And why is that?

Because this weekend at MOBS, it's gonna be all Mr. Lobo! NOTE: Advance tickets for the Cinema Insomnia Live Broadcast Taping will go off-sale tonight, Friday, August 13. Probably around 9 PM. The show is NOT sold-out and tickets will be available at the door.

Cinema Insomnia Live Broadcast Taping With The Undertaker and His Pals!

On Saturday, August 14, 2010, be a part of history and attend this first ever live broadcast taping of late night horror show, "Cinema Insomnia" with host Mr. Lobo! CI is now syndicated across the country, but ironically, can only be viewed via the internet in Sacramento.

Join Mr. Lobo as he hosts the 1960's mess, "The Undertaker and His Pals" - "a macabre story of two motorcycle-riding, knife-wielding, shiv-shaving, eye-gouging, arm-twisting, chain-lashing, scalpel-flashing, acid-throwing, gun-shooting, bone-breaking, pathological nuts and their pal the Undertaker!" OK, that last bit was actually the tagline for the movie. In reality, it's short on plot, but packed with horrible puns, blood, and some scantily-clad gals just to keep it somewhat interesting. Somewhat.

This event will be filmed. Please review the "Public Notice of Filming and Consent" which will be posted at all entrances on August 14 on our website at

Please also visit for information about ordering advance tickets.

And then...

Mr. Lobo's Movie Pick: Virginia Creepers

Didn't get enough of Mr. Lobo on August 14? As it turns out, it's a Lobo weekend! We asked Mr. Lobo to choose a movie and present it, and he agreed! Please note, this evening will NOT involve filming of any kind.

And Mr. Lobo picked...

Virginia Creepers! A full length feature documentary chronicling the rich history of Virginia and DC area horror hosts, featuring, well, Mr. Lobo!! And presented by, Mr. Lobo! It's like getting double the Lobo for one money!!

SEE! An array of horrifying ghouls and goblins haunting the Virginia airwaves for over 50 years in rare clips and photos!
HEAR! The bloodcurdling sounds of long lost shows!
THRILL! To see past and present hosts in a macabre tableau (whatever that is . . .) and witness interviews unseen anywhere else!

Hope to see you there!
