Without a doubt, one of the most bizarre activities to do in Los Angeles is to attend a Lucha VaVoom event. For those unfamiliar, Lucha VaVoom is an absurd Mexican wrestling event, exploding with acrobats, off-beat comedy, unbelievable burlesque performers, and ramblings from eccentric hosts. A “feast for the eyes” is an understatement, as you witness strange spectacles one might only see in a Fellini or Terry Gilliam film. We got a lucky chance to check out the Lucha VaVoom madness on their 2016 Valentine’s Day extravaganza, “Crazy in Love”.
Created by the stylish, fashionista, Rita D’Albert, Lucha Va Voom has been at the epicenter of Downtown Los Angeles for years, calling the Mayan Theater its “home”, which is a suitably trip surrounding. The Mayan Theater, with its classic, ornate details, is the perfect backdrop for wrestlers doing shocking acts, while also leaping, haphazardly through the air.
Here we are… 2016, and the launch of the art blog, TheChelseaTribe.com, the rapid-fire, manifestation of Bobby Carlton and Shane Hirschman, following decades of being immersed in creative, visionary circles throughout the world, but specifically L.A. and N.Y.C.
The Chelsea Tribe seeks to present various counter-culture ideas and expose some up-and-coming artists, while also sharing wisdom from some of the more pioneering icons from music, street art, fine art, fashion, technology, politics, and generally everything that should be on your radar, but maybe isn’t.
With a lifetime of unbelievable stories and triumphant moments in working with some of the most legendary musicians & artists, The Chelsea Tribe plans to have exclusive interviews, meaningful partnerships, and unique merchandise, all on display in one digital destination.
