Maybe you've seen Richmond Lucha Libre before, and maybe you've wondered if underneath those masks are the faces of people who bag your groceries, make your brunch, run your local government. If they're hooligans, you might say, at least there are only a few of them: Horrorshow, The Kamikaze Kid, Devil Kimura, The Amazon, Fighty McIrish and just a couple more. At least the damage can be controlled. Now consider the latest show Friday, May 12, at Alley Katz: "If It Ain't Jive, It Ain't Nyce," a memorial show for the late luchador Jive Nyce (George Bullock). In addition to the title belts, yelling and sheer pageantry, there's a 20-man Battle Royale. That's 20 people, perhaps people you know, thrashing one another for entertainment, acclaim and the kind of anonymous glory only the masked can know. Tickets are $10-$12. 643-2816. S
