The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Old Roller Derby was too nice. Look at those girls on the ground, theyre laughing.

Roller derby is like a petroleum-free Nascar race held in Punta Del Este: the crowd is there to see wrecks and girls.   Here is a blurb from the film’s website:

“Hell on Wheels is the ass kicking documentary film telling the story of a group of Texas women who band together to resurrect roller derby for the 21st century. Emerging from the Austin music and arts scene, these women create a rock and roll fueled version of all-girl roller derby that has spawned the derby craze that’s sweeping the nation.”
