Demons vs. Dragons, Bs vs. Dames: as the weather heats up, so does Atlanta roller derby! Start off your Saturday night with some home team action as the Sake Tuyas take on the Denim Demons. Next, The Rumble Bs warm up their stingers for a shot at the Greenville Derby Dames. AbracaJabYa here with details on why you should be psyched for April’s bouts.
Bout 1: Sake Tuyas vs. Denim Demons
Feel the flames all around as the Denim Demons, fresh out of Hell, rage against the Sake Tuyas, spitting dragon fire from above. For the Sakes, this could be their first win this season: the dragons are only going stronger as the season heats up. The Demon’s last game was a win against the Toxic Shocks, and the warship they’re sailing is eager to pile on another victory before interleague Playoffs in July. You’re sure to see an exciting fight as denim clashes with solid gold.
Bout 2: Rumble Bs vs. Greenville Derby Dames
Atlanta’s Rumble Bs defend their nest from our neighbors to the north: South Carolina’s Greenville Derby Dames. This is the Bs first home game of the season, and these sisters are buzzing with anticipation: do the Dames dare to duel? The last home games the Rumble Bs played were at B-team championships in October. The Bs won third place in that tournament, which hosted the top ten WFTDA B-level teams. This year, the Bs roster contains 14 new skaters and a few Bs veterans: Evil Olive, Human Missile Crisis, Luna Critz, and Saikou. Watch a fresh team stretch out their wings and keep the honey at home.
The fun starts on Saturday, April 22nd at 4 PM (when doors open) at Yaarab Shrine in Midtown. Bout 1 starts rolling at 5pm, and Bout 2 starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are available online or at the door. BYOB (no glass, please), and come hungry- a few mouthwatering food trucks and vendors will be posted outside. Come feel the fire with the Atlanta Roller Girls!
