Viva VaVoom!

super.jpgpoubelles.jpgIt's Friday, you just shut down your computer at work, and the thought of hanging out at the same bar surrounded by the same people just isn't cutting it for you.

You probably need some Lucha VaVoom.

A frothy mix of campy sports, sex and comedy (with some music thrown in for good measure), Lucha VaVoom was born in (East?) L.A. and has been moving across the country with traveling shows that combine a sometimes gender-bending twist on classic Mexican wrestling (lucha libre), burlesque and raunchy standup comedy. And that cultural mash-up will be at the Congress Theater tonight. Doors open at 8:30 and needless to say it's a 17 and over show. Tickets are still available.
