Crazy In Love: Lucha VaVoom ~ Feb. 10th & 11th

LOS ANGELES, CA – MAY 05: Lil Chicken and one of Los Cavaleras luchadores, traditional Mexican wrestlers, perform at the Lucha Vavoom Cinco de Mayan! show at the Mayan Theater on Cinco de Mayo, May 5, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Lucha Vavoom combines elements of theatrical Mexican masked wrestling shows known as Lucha Libre with American burlesque. Cinco de Mayo, or May Fifth in Spanish, celebrates the unlikely victory of 5,000 ill-equipped Mestizo and Zapotec Indians led by General Ignacio Zaragoza over the the much better-equipped French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 in Puebla, Mexico. In the US, Cinco de Mayo is often mistakenly equated with Mexican Independence which was on September 16, 1810. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
