Sophie Tweed-Simmons will sing the national anthem as her father Gene Simmons, co-founder of the legendary band KISS, accompanies her on bass guitar, on Saturday, December 13, 2008 at the L.A. Derby Dolls Banked Track All-Star Exhibition Roller Derby at 1910 Temple St. in Los Angeles, California. Doors are at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 general admission (ride your bike and get a $2 discount!); $40 for VIP.
The L.A. Ri-Ettes are an all-star team comprised of the best skaters from the four L.A. Derby Dolls' teams. From Arizona to Seattle, Santa's Little Helpers are a team of star skaters from different roller derby leagues throughout the nation. These all-star teams will be facing off on the banked-track in a special exhibition roller derby bout.
Derby Dolls is the premiere all-female, banked-track, quad-skating rock 'n' roller derby league in the Southern California area. Athletic and alluring, the L.A. Derby Dolls strive to be the fastest, most fearless ladies in fishnets. Within the league there are four teams: The Fight Crew, The Sirens, The Tough Cookies, and the Varsity Brawlers. While their uniforms may be stylish and their names playful do not be fooled by appearances — the L.A. Derby Dolls only skate pure, unscripted, real roller derby.
