Down & Derby at The Echoplex Roller Derby

DownandDirtyEchoplex

Oooh, who feels like some disco? And dancing?

I’ve been to The Echoplex many a time for many an awesome show but I can’t say I’ve ever been there in skates. Thursday, that may very well change. Filter Magazine and Whip It (a new derby doll-themed movie from Fox Searchlight) are having a special night of DJs, disco and derby! They’re even going to have 200 pairs of roller skates available to rent. I’m not exactly sure what their “roller-rink” capacity is, so I’d suggest getting there well in advance of their 9 PM start time to snatch your pair o’ skates.

Thee Mike B & Steve Ider will be providing awesome disco tunes (yeah – just like it says above in the flier).

It’s $5 with RSVP and $10 without, so be sure and visit the website and funk your way onto the list… And do note the suggested dress code to keep it fun. I’ll see you in short-shorts and tube socks!
