Ooh La La Lucha: Booze, boobs, and (Power)bombs!
The Fourth Annual ‘Day of the Battle Blowout’ has left a sexy, sweaty, slamming, and sauced up Cinco De Mayo aftermath in downtown Detroit yet again! After coming off of yet another action packed show last year, Ooh La La Lucha made its greatly anticipated return! The Motor City loves a good party and adores its many Mexican residents, and that’s why on May 5th ‘Tequila, Gams, and Body Slams’ came out to fiesta when Ooh La La Lucha invaded the famed Saint Andrew’s Hall for a night of action-packed Lucha Libre wrestling, burlesque, music, and delicioso food and drinks!

Combine beauty + brains + bustiers and you get The Lalas Burlesque Show! These lovely ladies have been demolishing expectations and wowing crowds since first elegantly exposing themselves seven years ago in Los Angeles. Hysterical, sexy, rebellious, and always engaging, you’ll drop your jaw, clap your hands, and tap your feet when you see the women take sexy stiletto to stage.
Along with the all the buxom beauty, we had the beasts (and brawlers). Showcasing an outfit of rough and tough Lucha Libre Wrestlers, including some of Mexico City’s finest, these high-flying and body slamming theatrical acrobats delivered an unforgettable night! Viva los Luchadores!
This year we were ecstatic to welcome Detroit’s very own Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas to the Ooh La La Lucha stage! This Latina línda and her muy bueno band brought big sound, great music, and was just all around fun for our eyes and ears.
Speaking of fun for our eyes, the very entertaining and bootyful… err beautiful local favorites The Benson Twins showed off their feats of sexy strength that made us all want to be that pole.
Channeling their inner Vicente Fernandez and Javier Solis the ‘Mariachi el’ Reefermen added some Spanish spice to everyone’s favorite punk and classic rock jams.
