Hot August Fights - Rollerpalooza and This Weekend's Derby Events Nationwide!

August 17, 2011 3:00 PM
As everyone knows, we love roller derby here at Brown Paper Tickets and we got a ton of derby events happening all over the country this weekend.

One of special interest to us is Rollerpalooza starting on Friday, August 19 in Coos Bay, Oregon. Our Derby Doer Bob Noxious is going to be in the house to help out. Bob travels all over the country helping out derby leagues with everything from announcing to coaching to helping them set up ticketing. If you're a derby league that needs a hand, get in touch with Bob and he can help you out.

Rollerpalooza is a weekend long derby festival that features clinics, scrimmages and tournaments from up and coming Northwest derby teams.

Bob says, "It's really grass roots derby, which is what I like about it. OK, ALL derby is grass roots, but this is derby for the love of the game and our culture. Not a tournament aimed at improving your ranking for the national playoffs , so the vibe will be very different, very fun."

What makes this so fun you ask? Well, you can camp on ten acres overlooking the ocean, there will be live bands, DJs, firedancers, bellydancers and a ton more all included in the price of admission. That not enough for you? Well, there will also be derby weddings at midnight on Friday and even a scavenger hunt! Sounds like a party to me. Tickets are still available so if you are a fan of everything derby, pick up tickets here (Spectator Passes available here) and roll on down to Coos Bay! Say hi to Bob when you get there. He'll be announcing AND officiating the derby weddings on Friday night. That's our boy!

But, this is far from the only derby event happening this weekend. We got derby happening all over the country so check out this list and look for a derby event happening in your neck of the woods.
