Lucha VaVoom rolled through Los Angeles Sunday night for Cinco de Mayo, after a stop in Chicago on Saturday. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a combination of pro wrestling and burlesque, with a dash of comedy on top of all that, promoted as “sexo y violencia.”

Get a taste for the event by checking out the slideshow of photos from Sunday night above, or check out the audio slideshow below from 2010’s Valentine’s Day Lucha VaVoom event. You can also read our report on that Lucha VaVoom event by clicking here.
