Seen Whip-It but still haven’t gotten your fix? Miss the Thriller-choreographed party in Hollywood a few months back? Wanna celebrate Halloween in style but sick of breaking the bank? Look no further – LA’s Best Party on Wheels is going to be Thriller-themed on Halloween and costs only $5 with RSVP.

Complete with a “How low can you go?” limbo contest, you’ll want to pull out your red motorcycle jacket, ghoul eyes, macabre face paint, masks and torn jeans. Oh – and your roller skates if you got ’em. If not, never “fear” – 200 pairs of skates will be available to rent. The Down & Derby people have also arranged a live performance by Pink Dollaz.

Disco tunes will be provided by Dublab DJs.

Down & Derby at The Echoplex Roller Derby

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!
