The Scouting Report
On Saturday, March 1, the L.A. Ri-Ettes—the Derby Dolls’ top-level squad—storm the banked-track at The Doll Factory for a showdown against the Pennsylvania All Stars. A week later, fans can catch an exhibition bout, the culmination of a four-day March RADness event, which draws together top roller-derby pros to lead a co-ed training camp for skaters from around the globe. The bout features elite skaters from the camp, their trainers, and Derby Dolls. Though both events kick off at 8 p.m., the real action begins at 6:30 p.m., as live bands–Spindrift on March 1 and School of Rock Fairfax House Band on March 8–create pummeling bass vibrations to test the structural integrity of the rink. Food trucks will be on hand serving up eats to pair with craft beers from Golden Road Brewing and Sailor Jerry Spice Rum.
The Doll Factory
Reflecting their zeal and do-it-yourself confidence, the LA. Derby Dolls zip around a 100’x60’ banked oval track that they built themselves with the help of friends and family members. The track’s customized slope and elevation enables them to hit breakneck paces normally reserved for cheetahs that can afford their own cleats. Bout attendees can wander over to the factory’s Doll Mall for Stila Cosmetics, apparel and jewelry, food from L.A. food trucks, and visit the Mohawk Bend Bar for craft beers from Golden Road Brewing or a Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum cocktail.
Although fans keep the air moving, the Doll Factory doesn’t have air conditioning or heating, so audience members should dress according to the season. Bout attendees can park their cars for $10 at Silver Lake Medical Center or their motorcycles and scooters for $5 at the Westlake entrance.
Recognizing the opportunities that having such a large track gives them, the Derby Dolls have expanded their community involvement by offering the venue for events such as the TwentyWonder fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles.
