Baseball is back and the Los Angeles Angels are ready for a strong season in the American League… More
Beware the quads of March when the L.A. Derby Dolls, Southern California’s premier banked track roller derby league, unleash the Swarm on the 2006 champions Fight Crew. The event will also feature famed Los Angeles actor and singer/bassist of seminal punk band X, John Doe, as he sings the National Anthem.
After a sold-out debut bout with the Varsity Brawlers in February, the Swarm schooled the Brawlers with a resounding victory featuring an astounding 30-point scoring half by jammer extraordinaire Sarkastika (aka Steely Jan). The Fight Crew started their 2009 with a heart-breaking loss to 2008 champions, the Tough Cookies, but showed a return to their fight or flight form that won them a previous championship and had fans chanting “better red than dead.”
Debuting new uniforms from FootageHead, the Fight Crew will be soaring over the track in style. FootageHead is offering the first 200 Fight Crew fans wearing the trademark red a free Fight Crew/FootageHead beer koozie.
The Swarm, the banked track all-star team from sister league San Diego Derby Dolls, the only banked and flat track league of its kind, is creating buzz after their debut. Watch for stealth moves and vicious stings from the renowned Ivanna S. Pankin, in addition to Trish the Dish, Bonnie D. Stroir, captain Isabelle Ringer and Sarkastika.
The L.A. Derby Dolls are no fly-by-night operation. One of only a handful of roller derby leagues skating on the spine-tingling banked track, the L.A. Derby Dolls induce terror and thrills among their fans who witness skaters smashing into one another with the velocity of a 747 and the rage of killer wasps. No slouches off the track, the Derby Dolls recently participated with the Mayor’s office and SIPA (Search to involve Pilipino Americans) in a day of service to the community of Historic Filipinotown. The league has also formed a junior derby league for girls ages 9-17 to learn the basics of the sport.
Time will fly, but don’t miss John Doe, of legendary punk band X, singing the national anthem before the bout. During halftime, make a beeline for the Vendor Village, where hip hop artist CAVIE aka Caviar from Compton will be performing.
