Horror, filth and glamour. That is the unholy decree of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula enterprise, which is currently taking the world by storm with the Titans tour. For those who aren’t aware, The Boulet Brothers are drag queens of darkness Dracmorda and Swanthula. The pair launched the hit competition TV series The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula in 2016 and four seasons later, it’s fiercer than ever. They even created a spinoff titled Titans, which debuted in 2022, and have hit the road putting on amazing performances with the competitors from this series. I attended the Los Angeles show and am so excited to tell you about it!

Let me backtrack for a minute before I dive into the night’s recap. If you listened to episode 19 of the Vamp Jenn’s Corner podcast, you may recall that I talked about how I had tickets to attend The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Season 4 show in May 2022. I never made it because of car trouble, and I was crushed, to say the least. I had been anticipating the event for months prior, so it was a sore blow having to miss it. Suffice it to say, I was worried that bad luck might strike again and I wouldn’t be able to make the performance. However, the gods and goddesses of drag were on my side, and I arrived at the venue on time.

The spectacle took place at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, a beautiful landmark with a richly decorated interior. It’s absolutely lavish inside, and the establishment has hosted events by Dita Von Teese and the LA opera. When I got there, the line was literally wrapped around the building, full of fellow Dragula fans eagerly waiting to enter.

In the foyer were The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula merch table, as well as a bar to grab snacks and drinks. The grand auditorium was brimming with animated energy, and gothic music was playing in the background. On stage were two coffins with a skull and bat wings etched on each of their surfaces and a mega screen behind them. All hell broke loose when The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula theme song began resounding from the speakers and the drag queens of horror themselves emerged from the shadows.

Both donned skin-tight latex mermaid gowns with devilishly high collars. They are truly my fashion icons. They greeted the audience, letting us know we were in for the most magnificent scares and thrills of our lives. The night featured performances by Evah Destruction, Kendra Onixxx, Koco Caine, Melissa Befierce, and the winner of Titans, Victoria Elizabeth Black.

Koco Caine kicked off the show looking as hot and devious as ever. Evah Destruction followed with a ferocious werewolf-inspired number, which I assumed was a nod to and appreciation for her naturally hairy physique. If you’ve seen the seasons with her as part of the cast, then you know what I’m talking about. I loved it! Kendra put on a rock-fueled performance and was joined by another drag performer, who possibly could’ve been Dragula season one finalist Frankie Doom, but it was difficult to tell. And then there was Victoria Black who delivered absolute zombie beauty queen vibes.

My favorite performance from the first half of the show was by Melissa Befierce. She appeared before us like the Virgen de Guadalupe and lip synced to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer.” Then, she transformed into a sinful nun preaching her sinister gospel to a remixed version of Madonna’s “Holy Water.” It totally revved the audience into a frenzy. Dracmorda and Swanthula closed out act one with a darkly ethereal rendition of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ “Face to Face.”

There were just as many spooky treats spread throughout part two of the event, such as a group number that brought the Titans crew together in their Halloween best. After, Mistress Koco Caine slayed to a heavy metal remix of Disturbed’s “Down With the Sickness” and the Spice Girls’ “If You Wanna Be My Lover.” She embodied the warrior spirit, wielding a knife and sizzling armor.

Evah Destruction’s awesome costume design skills shined through when she performed “My Jolly Sailor Bold” by Ashley Serena. She seemed to be a mermaid trapped in the shimmering, luminescent body of a sea creature. If you haven’t heard this song, I recommend listening to it. I adore the dark fairy tale atmosphere it exudes.

Victoria Elizabeth Black created a world reminiscent of one of Joseph Vargo’s gothic illustrations. She materialized from a crypt wearing a blood-stained gown and magnificent crown, crooning to a melancholy ballad by Rafferty titled “Mausoleum.” It’s become a new favorite song of mine.

For the grand finale, The Boulet Brothers came out in full femme fatale vampire glory and feasted upon a naïve victim played by their beloved producer and assistant, Ian DeVoglaer. Once they had their bloody fill, they disappeared into their coffins and resurrected as nocturnal bats. It was brimming with electric energy.

I can’t express enough how fantastic the evening turned out. Dracmorda and Swanthula dazzled with their morbid sense of style, giving me several wardrobe ideas. Every one of the drag performers was astounding to see in the flesh. They each embody their own dark magick and brewed it to perfection in The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula cauldron. There were even other Dragula super monsters enjoying the show incognito among the audience, including Biqtch Puddin’ and Abhora, to name just a couple. It was a pleasure getting to meet Abhora, Melissa Befierce and Titans winner, Victoria Elizabeth Black before I departed. What a marvelous way to conclude the night!

  1. What full-throttle evening! Looks like it didn’t let up even once.

    I only can imagine how long it takes the Brothers to set up for each show, between the sets, the props and, above all, the makeup and the costumes. Oh, and the venue – magnificent! Their location scout is woefully underpaid.

    It was great to read of your dream deferred, but not denied, Jenn! I learned of the events only a week or so ago, and I’m abuzz. I only can imagine how magical it’s been for you, anticipating everything for a year or more. At last the Dark Mistress has risen!

    1. Thanks so much! Just thinking about how much effort goes into putting a tour together like that makes me exhausted, but they manage to entertain audiences without missing a beat. It was a memorable experience.
