1. Lucha Britannia 265 Poyser Street, London, E2 9RF (Shoreditch)

Taking place a week from today in Bethnal Green's Resistance Gallery, this utter insanity will feature "Britain's finest Lucha Libre & Neo Burlesque Beauties", with a flamboyantly masked lineup of two dozen gravity defiers, including "Estupido the Human Torpedo", "Shiro Yoshida the Japanite BuzzSaw", and "Necrosis the Half Zombie". To learn the art of decking a supervillain yourself, you can attend recently opened London School of Lucha Wrestling, an affiliated academy where they teach a Mexi-Brit mix of acrobatic beat-downs, as well as stuff you can "take & use in everyday life", including "coordination, balance, and confidence" -- i.e., the state of not feeling Estupido.
