Lester will be donning their Mexican wrestling masks and indulging in their new-old guitar-based sound, which would have been right at home on the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack.

(With or without wrestling masks.) Anne Tallent, editor, b Here's my short-term memory kicking in: Kristin Chenoweth, who performed at the NFC Championship with the right balance of flair and traditionalism.
