February 21st: It’s the Bout that Launched a Thousand Hits!
Set sail for a night that will go down in history as the North Star Roller Girls gear up for two epic home team bouts. Those camouflaged crusaders, the Kilmore Girls, will attempt to lay siege to the walls of the Banger Sisters. The ladies in red, the Violent Femmes, take on Delta Delta Di in a match that will end in triumph for one team and Greek tragedy for the other.
Every one of these skaters is tougher than Achilles and as gorgeous as Helen of Troy. It’ll take more than a Trojan Horse to get the jammers through the pack and score a heroic victory.
The night begins with a few bawdy ballads from folk music/improv comedy group the Dregs. These Twin Cities-based bards (voted best musical act at the MN Ren Fest) bring a combination of a capella and instrumental genre-bending tunes with a Irish twist.
At halftime, be prepared to jump ship and dance to the unique beats of alt-ska act Umbrella Bed.
As always, Fox Den Salon and Midwest Makeup Supply will be on hand to keep you looking battle-ready and beautiful, and cartoonist Bryce Davidson captures the moment with unforgettable caricatures. Keep yourself fueled for the action with food and drink from the concession stands, and don’t forget to try a flagon or two of beer from our sponsor, Northgate Brewing!
