RUBBING SALT IN OPEN WOUNDS!!!
Derby Girls To Hold First Public Bout
The Salt City Derby Girls, Utahs only all-women flat-track roller derby league, are excited to announce their first public bout, to be held from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, July 29, at Hollywood Connection in West Valley City.
A lot of people dont know what roller derby is, said league spokesperson Brew HaHa! (like every roller derby participant, she goes by her derby name in all derby-related aspects of her life). We encourage everyone whos curious to come out and watch.
Many may picture the highly scripted and choreographed roller derby that was popular in the 1970s, but thats not what the Salt City Derby Girls are about. We are athletes. We have a skill and a game, and we are here to be taken seriously. And its great entertainment. Its literally hard-hitting action, Brew HaHa! said.
The bout will feature live music by local band Spooky Deville. Tickets are $10 per person; children age 5 and under free with a paying adult.
The Salt City Derby Girls were established in 2005 and were voted Best New Minor Minor League by City Weekly in May 2006. The leagues local sponsors include X96, The Bayou, The Puck, Arsenic Fashions and S&R Prints, with special thanks to Hollywood Connection.
