Any good disco party is, from start to finish, a fleshy, hairy, glittery mess slick with sweat and your choice of several other warm liquids. Any good foray on roller skates is pretty much the same deal, if you’re doing it right. Meaning: combined, they make a gloriously hot pantsed beast of a creation and one of the hairiest, sweatiest, best products of the 70s, roller disco.
Add a few hundred people all attempting similar moves in similar getups while circulating in one direction, a lot of alcohol, and you’re visualizing one of Cellspace’s inimitable roller disco parties, the next of which occurs tonight, Friday, from 8 p.m. till 2 a.m. Because the music will be blasting so hard and the moves so distracting, they’ve had to cap the attendance with fire safety in mind – so get your tickets ahead of time here. Skate rentals are free.
For those of you who missed our coverage of last year’s event or the helpful primer in roller disco that was Patrick Swayze’s “Skatetown USA,” here’s a little glimpse. If one of these items doesn’t convince you to go, well, you might be a lost cause. Roll on!
Friday, December 30
8 p.m.-2 a.m.
2050 Bryant St.
