If you’ve never been to a roller derby bout, you’re in luck because home team Durango Roller Girls will be taking on the Denver Roller Dolls on Saturday at Chapman Hill, 500 Florida Road.
For the uninitiated: A roller derby bout is made up of two-minute jams that pit two teams against each other. During a jam, it’s the job of the team’s jammer to pass as many of the opposing team skaters as possible, earning points while doing so.
And it’s a full-contact sport, making it pretty awesome to watch.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the bout starts at 7.
Tickets are $10 in advance at Southwest Sound and brownpapertickets.com, or $15 at the door. Kids 12 and younger get in free. Concessions and beer will be available for cash only, and all beer tips will be donated to Rainbow Youth Center.
