Tickets are on sale now at LuchaVaVOOM.com.
Lucha VaVOOM’s hometown faithful should brace themselves as this year’s two-night Valentine’s engagement, titled “Amor Prohibido,” includes a huge helping of lucha libre-style wrestling straight from Mexico City, Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Juarez; high-octane performances from world-renowned talent; plus, plenty of tequila, minis, aerialists, hula hoops, low riders, comedy, live music, and more.
This year’s show will include a special musical appearance by multimedia artist CHRISTEENE, the human pissoir of raw unabashed sexuality; a gender-blending, booty-pounding, perversion of punk with a fully equipped arsenal of ferocious music intertwined with raw moments of strained intimacy and fiery stank. Reports from the artist/musician’s live shows describe distressed choreography, macabre scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released from the singer’s arse, intimate and bizarre confessionals, wardrobes styled from the forgotten scraps of society, and heated communication on the state of the world. Boy George proclaims, “What a f..king awesome hip hop, Beyonce, Evil Dead, queercore, unapologetic, sick show…KILL FOR A TICKET!” Click here to watch her video for “African Mayonnaise.”
