Devoida Mercy? Ginger Vitis? Rollanya Asse? Must be derby.
This upcoming weekend, the Philly Roller Girls will host the 2012 East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX), where 1000 skaters will compete on three rinks for three days. It is the event’s sixth anniversary, founded in 2007 and has grown to include 120+ leagues from eastern and northern United States.
Know what was also founded in 2007? The WPRB Fall Membership Drive! Know what that means? WPRB and ECDX were born together and practically made for each other. THUS, it was clearly necessary for us to reach out to the derby girls a few weeks ago and see how we could get involved.
SO, this Saturday, WPRB will join forces with the Philly Roller Girls and play some music at ECDX. What to expect? No idea, but we are on the quest for angry girl rock. (We hope we aren’t being too stereotypical.) If you have any suggestions for derby music, feel free to comment below.
To all Philadelphians interested in seeing angry females on skates can purchase tickets here. They come in daily, weekend, and bout rates. Also, here is an important link to generate your own derby name.
