The Docket

Oh, say, it's Cheap Ticket Night:

Wednesday, March 25, 2009
Time: 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Beulahland, Kay's, The Nightlight, Black Cat, Kelley's, Rogue, Kenton

I think Scratcher said she'd by at the Kenton Club. I wonder what that place smells like without cigarette smoke to mask other fumes.

Regardless, rollergirls will be selling cheap tickets at all the above-listed locations and offering sweet deals like 4 tickets for the price of 3 for Saturday's big Portland-Seattle matchup at the Expo Center.

Then Friday, March 27, 2009 from 7 to 9 p.m., it's the release party for "Doppelganger at the Hangar," the latest smash comic in the "True Tales of Roller Derby" series from Oni Press. The Heathers' own Titania along with Heathers affiliate the Mad Nader participated in the creation of this spooky, suspenseful gem. Come rub elbows with these and other stars at Cosmic Monkey, 5335 NE Sandy.

Elevated from the comments - Noz: Uh..., saying Nads and T-Moma "paticipated" in the creation of the comic is like saying your mother was there to lend a hand in your birth.

They squeezed that comic out...

Then Saturday, the big double-header bout at Portland Expo Center Featuring Portland's Wheels of Justice and Axles of Annihilation vs. all-star teams from Seattle's Rat City Rollers.

Tentative Vernon Neighborhood and Auxiliary Cadavers pre-function at 3:30 at Pause Kitchen and Bar, 5101 N Interstate Ave. We will have two Rat City fans in tow: come meet them. They're quite nice, just misguided.

Whoops - Royal is closed. We are at the Brotherhood

Make my funk the pre-funk

It may be just Aitch and I, and it may be Aitch and I and Dancing Scott, and it may be Aitch and I and Dancing Scott and you all, but there shall be a WOJ/Oly prefunction today at 4 p.m. at the Royal, 311 Capitol Way N., Olympia. At five we will roll out with our proverbial holes out to Skateland.

Directions from place to place are here.

WOJ v. Oly open thread

At last a chance to again see some Heathers in action, this time on the Wheels of Justice as the Portland all-stars battle the Cosa Nostra Donnas at Skateland in Olympia, Saturday March 21 at 6 p.m. Afterparty at the Brotherhood Lounge (119 Capitol Way N).

Questions for consideration:

Who's in and who's out of the WOJ line-up? One assumes that Fire Crotch's hurty knee still has that esteemed skater out of commission, and that Itzo EZ is benched for a while as well. Other than that, do the WOJ have a full force to get busy one time? Can I hope to see Scratcher, Sol Train, Sump Pump, TeqKillYa and Viagrrra Falls in action?

Heathercentricity aside for a moment (actually for a couple of weeks), will WOJ have the benefits of Axl, Clottia, Bumpsalot, BustHer, Cadillac, Rhea, DKon, GMT, Layla, Leet, Licker, and Wrench?

What's this one hears about the Oly fans? Do they shout out rude names? Can they be any worse than Cadavers?

Can CND match their much-hyped rep?

Who's going up there to watch, who wants to pre-funk and where, and who is going to the post-funk?

See you in the comments.

"Doppelganger at the Hangar" release party, March 27.

From the Ministry of Information, this ass-kicking good news:

Its being promoted by Monkey and Oni Press, one of the top independent comic publishers in the country. To date, there is no other published comic book in the country featuring real derby ladies. Once again RCR is trail-blazing.

Please come! The book will be available for purchase, skates are allowed and there will be refreshments and a good time.

The illustrator, Dennis Culver will be there as well as the writers (the Heathers' own) Titania and Nader Absood, and colorist extraordinaire, Slambo!"

Synopsis with no spoilers: Goodie Two-Skates is missing! And who are these new skaters--the freakishly perfect freshies that have suddenly shown up? The Wheels of Justice have to find Goodie and get to the bottom of this mystery before Nationals, or Drillmaster and the Icy Blonde will succeed in corrupting the team forever! It's mad science and wicked skating skills courtesy of Portland's own Rose City Rollers!

G'n'R 118, HRMF 105 open thread

Dang. Blood Clottia and penalties are em-effers (I think Blood Clottia is an em-effer in a good way, unless you're skating against her).

Anybody else want to type about the bout?

UPDATE: Elwood's recap is up.

'NOTHER UPDATE: Cuban Refugee has some good photos here.
