Masked luchadores in bright capes and skin-tight pants will enter the ring to fight a battle of comic book proportions on the evening of Valentine's Day. Only with a little more striptease thrown into the good vs. evil.

Since 2003, Lucha VaVoom, a troupe who engages in high-flying Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling matches with an intermission of burlesque dancers (a.k.a. buxoticas: they provide the va-voom), continues to entertain a growing cult following at the historic Mayan Theater in Los Angeles.

This isn't your typical Valentine's Day date. But if you manage to catch this year's Lucha VaVoom's Valentine's Day engagement, 'Lucha is for Lovers', this wild performance guarantees a stimulating night.

Two of the three shows are sold out and a few tickets remain for Thursday night.
