What's better to know there?
Could you be more specific in your question?
Not only do I know what's better to know here I know who's better to know.
That pretty much says all there is to say, about this intricate question.
Not the OP here, but I'm going to Buenos Aires in a couple of weeks. Does anyone know where a good spot would be to go see a tango show?

ask what you will. There are Argentine experts there.
I didn't see a traditional tango show as I was advised that they are very touristy. In a conversation with a waitress in BA, she suggested we check out a local Milonga - where the locals go to tango. It was fantastic - here is a list of famous ones and I believe we went to the first one, Confiteria Ideal. Hope you enjoy BA half as much as I did!
Confitería Ideal: an old-fashioned milonga where dances are held afternoons and evenings, almost every day of the week. Confiteria Ideal was the setting for films like The Tango Lesson and Evita.
Salon Canning: a meeting point for the best dancers of Buenos Aires on Fridays.
La Nacional: another traditional milonga.
Niño Bien: another traditional milonga.
La Viruta: a preferred place for the younger public; up to 200 people attend dancing classes here before the dance. The music includes electrotango and sometimes even salsa and rock and roll.
Cachirulo: One of the most traditional milongas in Buenos Aires requiring men and women to sit on opposite sides of the room. It takes place every Saturday from 6 pm to Sunday 4 am.
La Catedral: an interesting milonga situated in an old factory. There are classes and milongas almost every night, with Tuesdays being a popular night for tourists and first-timers.
