Recently honored as a Treasure of L.A. by the Central City Association, the L.A. Derby Dolls prove their worth with another spectacular evening of music, mayhem and, of course, banked track roller derby at the Doll Factory (1910 Temple St., L.A., CA 90026) on Saturday, May 9.
The L.A. Derby Dolls (LADD) all-star team, called the L.A. Ri-Ettes, battle a hybrid team made up of two of the best flat track leagues in the nation called KC/DC. Both the Kansas City Roller Warriors (KCRW) and the Duke City Rollergirls (DCD) are ranked among the top 15 leagues in the country and belong to the Womens Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). To date there are more than 360 flat track leagues in the nation. The LADD are one of only four leagues skating on the spectacular banked track.
The hometown Ri-Ettes feature the best of the best in LADD, with explosive fan favorites like Mila Minute and Broadzilla and quiet superstars like Haught Wheels and Paris Killton alongside imposing captain Krissy Krash. KC/DC will look to steal the jewel from LADDs treasure and are bringing a battalion that includes captains of their respective travel teams, Bruz-Her (KC) and Kamikaze Kim (DC) and the fast and furious jammer Muffin. Does it take two to take down the Ri-Ettes?
