Roller Derby!

We went to Coon Rapids to see the Minnesota Rollergirls premiere. The place was packed! They definitely looked to have benefitted from all the press prior to the event. It was plenty of entertaiment, all for about the same price as a movie these days. Plus, we got to hang out in a classic style roller rink that had us hearkening back to the eighties. Those girls really showed some athletic chops too.

In between heats the Soviettes played a short set. I've been wanting to see them play since I got their LP a couple years back. I didn't really get to see them though, they had a little stage area off to the far end of the rink. Also, I think the set was too short to really get a sense of their performance, as they didn't really tighten it all up until they were pretty much finished.

All-in-all a great evening of entertainment, I think we may go to see how their second session goes on March 20...
