Wrestlepalooza is back for its fourth installment this weekend at First Avenue with its cast of face-smashing, high-flying wrestlers, including "The Anarchist" Arik Cannon, Colt Cabana, Horace the Psychopath, and many more. Unlike your run-of-the-mill wrestling show, Wrestlepalooza also features some of the best burlesque performers in Minnesota, adding a sexy and sassy touch to the ensemble of bone-crushing bros. Sweetpea, one of the evening's featured performers, says that the event gives her the chance to add a little more edge to her personality, and channel her inner pro-wrestler. "For Wrestlepalooza, I get to play and bring out my rock 'n' roll, funk, and over-the-top character acts, and leave the high-glamour, classic parade-and-peels meant for large stages at home," she says. "It allows for me to express more sides of Sweetpea that others don't get to see." Music will be provided by punk rockers Banner Pilot. 18+. (Pictured: Colt Cabana)
