Roller derby is back on track, and the West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League is smashing into the new season with a double feature of block bustin’ local “derby inspired” flicks at the Royal Theatre in Trail on April 8.

Derby Does Dallas: A Flat Track Film Fest, will raise funds to support the burgeoning league and its raucous roller women.

Not only are the movies “amazingly awesome,” according to organizers, but there’ll be “loads of sweet swag to give away” and team merchandise to buy.

All the better to cheer on Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels as they take on Salmo’s Babes of Brutality in the first bout of the season at the Arena on April 16.

Alcohol will be served to keep things good and rowdy, and derby themed costumes are emphatically encouraged.

Unfortunately, no minors are permitted to attend the party.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. on April 8, and the films start at 8. Tickets, $10, are available at RossVegas in Rossland, Gerricks in Trail, Phat Angel in Nelson, and HTR in Castlegar.
