MONDO LUCHA! Sep. 11th in Milwaukee!

The term “freak show” might normally carry a negative connotation, but the masterminds behind the Mondo Lucha unapologetically embrace it. Dreamed up by two longtime wrestling fanatics, Andy Gorzalski and Jay Gilkay, Mondo Lucha is an amalgam of Mexican wrestling, sexy burlesque performances, sideshow carnival acts, and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s the kind of wacked-out extravaganza that once only existed in the twisted films of Russ Meyer. Saturday’s latest installment features a typically weird combination of performers at Turner Hall Ballroom, including Milwaukee expatriate Pezzettino, who returns to town to celebrate the release of the new Lub Dub, a collaboration with LMNtlyst.
