March Madness – Roller Derby Style!

I know, I know. When you hear March Madness, you usually thinks of basketball but judging by the sheer number of roller derby events we got going on just in the first few weeks of March, I think that’s going to change. There’s derby bouts going on everywhere. You’d be hard pressed to find a corner of the country that doesn’t have a bout happening.

We are, of course, so proud to be part of the national roller derby movement and encourage everyone to go out and support this grass-roots, DIY sport that’s on the rise. Look for another list towards the end of the month featuring more derby madness!

Roll on guys and gals, roll on!

Supplement the Turkey Coma with a Side of Derby

The holidays are almost upon us and what better way to celebrate the holidays than taking the family to see your local roller derby league? We got tons of holiday themed derby events, some fundraisers, some training events and of course, lots of bouts. Derby is always a fun and unique way to spend time with the family and your local derby teams could use your support for the upcoming holiday season.

Also starting on Thursday, December 1 in Toronto, Ontario is Blood & Thunder’s Roller Derby World Cup. This is the first Roller Derby World Cup and features teams from USA, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Finland, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Argentina. Proof positive that the derby revival has become a worldwide obsession. Our Alternative Sports Doer Bob Noxious will be in the house helping out along with resident roller-girl Michelle Sunnyday (aka Sunny With A Chance of Pain of the Tilted Thunder Railbirds). This is going to be a great event where international derby teams can not only compete with each other but also network and learn from fellow derby enthusiasts. If you love derby, get your tickets here, head out to Toronto and be a part of what promises to be the derby event of the year. Read the rest of this entry »

Hot Tickets: New York

Every Friday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the New York area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Bicycle Sighs (Jitensha Toiki)  Shion Sono’s first 16mm feature film, “Bicycle Sighs,” tells the story of two young newspaper couriers and their unrealized dreams as filmmakers. A provocative coming-of-age drama as well as a study of nostalgia, hopes, dreams, and reality, “Bicycle Sighs” brought Sono to the attention of critics and viewers alike.

Tonight – Friday, October 7 to Sunday, October 23 The Family Room  All fifteen-year-old David wants is to be a typical teenager, angry with everyone, especially his parents – two therapists who treat David like another patient. But in this world even therapists have therapists, and with David’s rage mounting, and his parents’ marriage on the rocks, every member of the family finds themselves in treatment, and no one is getting any better. When David secretly tapes his father’s sessions with a troubled girl from David’s school and uses his knowledge to begin a budding romance  lives collide, therapists become patients, parents act like children and two teenagers must decide whether big problems can be solved by friendship alone. Heartbreaking, hilarious and perceptive, “The Family Room”, takes an incisive swipe at the dizzying revolving door of therapists in therapy, and the moments of true intimacy that stop us cold.

Hot Tickets: New York

Every Friday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the New York area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Starting TONIGHT! Antinous – Antinous is a tragedy — a tale about the fated love that grew between an adolescent and a middle-aged man. But it is also a story about politics, identity, power and powerlessness. It happened about two thousand years ago in Ancient Rome, when a Greek boy was brought to Emperor Hadrian’s palace following a devastating earthquake in his homeland.  No one knows when or why, but Antinous became Hadrian’s page first, and, then his lover. Relationships between powerful men and promising youths were then tacitly permitted. Extending the bond beyond adolescence, however — and certainly, falling in love — was frowned upon. But they did fall in love. Very deeply. The Emperor outlived his young lover for seven years, becoming increasingly sick and prematurely old.  He surrounded himself with statues of his page and ruled the Empire from his Villa in Tivoli, the place he had shared with him for years. This play, therefore, is a fantasy — an effort to imagine who this boy might have been, based on the few facts we know about him, and on the many images of him that have survived. Looking at them closely, we suspect that he was a lot more than an exceptionally beautiful boy. Antinous’ extant images give us some clues. In them we find an impertinent, temperamental, intelligent, melancholic, vulnerable young man.
