The newest members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls orchestrate hard hits and pileups as they clash elbow pads with their newfound rivals. During each bout, the team's lady combatants shove aside their normal personas—from soap-makers to systems analysts—to strap on roller skates and unleash their fierce alter egos with names such as Florence Nite-n-Hell and Wicked Caroline. The squad’s mixture of passion and talent was also the focal point of a 2009 documentary entitled Black-n-Bluegrass, in which the girls discuss the aspects of the sport and cast aside common misconceptions, such as that the skaters’ helmets actually house their oversized brains.
Derby fans can get their Black-n-Bluegrass fix at three remaining regular-season bouts held on July 21, August 18, and September 22, or hold off until the equally body-punishing postseason tournament in October. No matter the matchup, The Bank of Kentucky Center's arena-style seating ensures unfettered views of the action, especially from "suicide seating" down on the floor, which is only available for adults and those who are authorized to notarize insurance reports after particularly gnarly collisions.
Though the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
