Lucha VaVoom is such an outrageous, nonstop three-ring circus of distractions that it’s really turned into its own genre. Sure, the long-running spectacle encompasses lucha-libre wrestling, sexy burlesque, daring aerialist performances and comedy, but it’s the dazzling and frenetic way that all these forces come together that make Lucha VaVoom so bizarrely compelling and unique. This year’s “Pin Ups ’n Pin Downs” Valentine’s shows feature music from Starcrawler; burlesque artists Miss Miranda, Miss Tosh and Trixie Little; aerialist Veronica Yune; host-comedians Blaine Capatch and Jeff Davis; wrestling kingpin El Bombero and “mini superstar wrestlers” Microman (in his U.S. debut) and Chamuel. The Mayan, 1038 S. Hill St., downtown; Wed.-Thu., Feb. 12-13, 8 p.m.; $40 & $55. (213) 746-4674, luchavavoom.com.
