Since 2005, the ladies of the Assassination City Roller Derby have waged war on eight-wheeled opponents by throwing bows and heating up rinks during roller rumbles. A Beastie Boys–themed double-header on June 23 pits Ruby's Revenge against the leather-clad Lone Star Assassins, an undefeated team. During halftime, Ramones tribute band Sedated shouts caffeinated punk ditties before the girls of Ruby Revue Burlesque deliver a show packed with blue humor and mild striptease. A face-off between last season's champions follows, with the schoolgirl-styled Deadly Kennedys attempting to speed past the athletes of Viva La Revolucion! to king their checker pieces. Additionally, the audience member dressed most like a Beastie Boy will win tickets to the championship game on July 21.
During halftime on July 21, Blues Brothers tribute act Briefcase Blues will perform, backed by a seven-piece band. All Groupon holders walk away from either bout with a commemorative poster emblazoned with the Assassination City Roller Girls' signatures and updated bruises. Though not included with today's deal, beer, wine, and concessions will be available for purchase.
