Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em, Robust

Well, the World Cup's over anyway. So tune in now to a decidedly American sport (originally Latin American), claimed as Richmond's own by Richmond Lucha Libre. Here's a sport where big healthy fellows, often in masks, leap off the ropes and turnbuckles, elbows aimed straight at the opponent's jugular. Should that be too tame for futbol fans, there's also the promise of getting smashed with chairs. Oh yes, it's wrestling, that most poetic form of violence, coming to Rocks in Shockoe Bottom Saturday, July 29, for Six Man Suicide, a show that throws six fighters into a ring to do battle with (in addition to the chairs) tables and ladders and perhaps a little foul language. With live rock and roll music, Richmond Lucha may just be the best kind of summer theater. And with the most flying teeth! Doors open at 9 p.m. $10. 648-ROCK. S
