Kaiju Big Battel Returns To Destroy San Francisco (Canceled)

Kaiju Big Battel San Francisco

Kaiju Big Battel, featuring epic wresting matches between Japanese city destroying monsters, returns to crush San Francisco (with special guests Busdriver and Rocktapussy) this Wednesday, November 19th at The Regency Center’s Grand Ballroom. Kaiju Big Battel will also wreak havoc in Los Angeles on November 20th.

Kaiju Big Battel is a modern conflict of epic proportions. Planet Earth is under threat: scattered throughout the galaxy is a monstrous mob of maniacal villains, menacing alien beasts, and giant, city-crushing monsters that are waging war against one another. Presiding over this mayhem is the Kaiju Commissioner, an enigmatic human-arbiter appointed by a clandestine cadre of world leaders to regulate Kaiju rage. If the Kaiju Commissioner doesn’t do his job perfectly the entire world could get caught in the crossfire.

Currently, the Kaiju Universe maintains an active roster of approximately 50 monsters, including a factory-worker-turned-soup-can called Kung-Fu Chicken Noodle, a dirty hare-sage dubbed Dusto Bunny, a loser sea beast known as Call-Me-Kevin, and a despicable, square-headed mad scientist known as Dr. Cube. In addition to the Kaiju Commissioner, a few privileged humans also get a piece of the action, including Referee Jingi, a mustachioed official who enforces fairness and civility in the ring, Davio Salbino, an urban renewal expert who reconstructs crumbled cityscapes between Battels, and one tuxedo-wearing, mouth-running MC, Louden Noxious.

UPDATE: Both the San Francisco and Los Angeles shows have been canceled.

The Kaiju Commissioner made this statement:

“This decision to cancel the Kaiju Big Battel events in Los Angeles and San Francisco WAS NOT made by Kaiju Big Battel. If we had it our way, we would be crushing your city this week.

We thank you very much for your desire to support Kaiju Big Battel. Our fans are truly important to us, and we’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused them. We hope to make it back to your city soon.”

For those fans already holding tickets, refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Thanks to M2 for the tip!
