Mad Mexi Monster Party
Lucha VaVOOM returns to the Mayan Theatre, October 28
Published on LatinoLA: September 21, 2004
Lucha VaVOOM, the world?s first and only Mexican-style Lucha Libre and Burlesque Extravaganza, is kicking off a four-city, North American Halloween tour. Featuring the biggest names in Mexican-style Lucha Libre, midgets, burlesque dancers, comedic commentary and shag-adelic Spanish tunes from the 50s and 60s, Lucha VaVOOM makes its fall debut in Cleveland?s The Agora Ballroom on October 20th; and will then travel to Detroit?s The Majestic Theater on October 21st, and San Francisco?s Ruby Skye on October 27th. The tour culminates at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles on October 28th, 2004.
Lucha VaVOOM is proud to present its 2nd Annual Halloween show, ?Mad Mexi Monster Party.? Returning to the Lucha VaVOOM ring is masked Mexican wrestling superstar SANTO, son of Lucha Libre?s silver-masked icon whom the world would come to know as "El Santo," the most beloved wrestler in Mexican Lucha Libre history. SANTO will be joined by legendary luchadores Blue Demon, Jr., Super Parka and Felino (pictured).
Continuing the unique tradition of Lucha VaVOOM, other featured matches include: Chilango, Casandro and Rosa Salvaje vs. Durango, Kayam and Enigma de Oro; the Chickens vs. Los Sanchos; and the Poubelle twins who have battled their share of adversaries at past Lucha VaVOOM showcases, among them Frankenstein?s Monster, the Kissing Bandit and the Glamazons. Their latest foe, the Bodyguard, tried to muscle these French Maid luchadoras and paid dearly.
Their heated match ended with both girls flying out of the ring and tackling him in the audience!
Since then, they?ve been honing their skills with their maestro, the legendary Misterioso, and have taken their talent to professional rings in Los Angeles, Compton and Tijuana -- and they?re going to need it! The Bodyguard has sworn to seek vengeance at the next Lucha VaVOOM, and this time he will be playing dirty with a surprise compadre.
What Mexican wrestling and burlesque show would be complete without a magnificent minis (midgets) match? Crowd favorites Tsuki and Mascarita Sagrada will battle Parkita and Guerrerito del Futuro in a stunning display of mini might.
Lucha VaVOOM off-color commentators Blaine Capatch and Patton Oswalt are back to call the Mad Cap Mexi Masked mayhem, like no others can. For those in the know, Blaine Capatch, is a veteran stand-up comedian and game show host (Beat the Geeks), as well as a writer for ?Mad TV,? ?The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,? ?The Martin Short Show? and ?My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee.? Not to be outdone, Patton Oswalt, co-star of CBS? ?The King of Queens,? is best known for his numerous television appearances, including ?Seinfeld,? ?News Radio,? ?Late Night with Conan O?Brien,? and the ?Jimmy Kimmel Show;? Oswalt also has starred in several films, including ?Zoolander,? ?Magnolia,? and ?Man on the Moon, and appears regularly at Montreal's ?Just for Laughs festival.?
Legendary Southern California Mobile DJ, Se?or Amor, provides the soundtrack that ties LUCHA VAVOOM all together. He's the co-founder of Los Angeles? first Lounge radio show, "The Molotov Cocktail Hour" (more than 10 years on KXLU 88.9 on Tuesdays at 11 pm). Se?or Amor has been featured at every cool bar in Los Angeles, in addition to gigs all around the U.S., and is a regular spinner at movie premiere and rap parties. The music Se?or Amor spins at the Lucha VaVOOM shows is primarily 50s and 60s rock-and-roll, Mexican grunge, a little country or Norte?o now and then, but all in Spanish. There's more to Latino music than shakin' maracas; think Los Rockin Devils and you've hit the hammer on the head.
Lucha VaVOOM has searched far and wide to provide the best in burlesque, and bringing the VaVOOM to this Halloween show are the Lucha VaVOOM Buxoticas (Buxotica = Buxom + Exotica), including Miss Exotic World 2002 Kitten DeVille, Miss Exotic World 2003 Erochica (direct from Tokyo), and Los Angeles favorites Ursulina, Cardinal Cyn, Ming Dynatease and Summer Peaches, as well as San Francisco tassel-twirler extraordinaire Desire D?Amour.
Founded in Los Angeles in August 2002, LUCHA VaVOOM is the only show of its kind and has attracted fans from all walks of life - from hipsters, comic book collectors, show-biz bigwigs to Latino Lucha Libre fans, twenty-somethings, seventy-somethings and folks of all cultures and lifestyles. This intense, highly combustible burrito of forbidden pleasures is not to be missed. Lucha VaVOOM draws its inspiration from the Lucha Cinema of the 50s and 60s where masked wrestling heroes battled the bad guys, with an obligatory stop at the go-go. It all comes together to form the surreal live experience that according to Rolling Stone Magazine is, ?enough to make even the most jaded Hollywood insider jump up and yell ?Smackdown!? like he really means it.?
