Denver’s original premiere flat-track roller derby league, Rocky Mountain Rollergirls will take on its cross-town rival, the Denver Roller Dolls, in a rare double header competition at The Fillmore Auditorium. The A and B competitive travel teams of both nationally ranked roller derby leagues will make it an evening of fierce competition.

Rocky Mountain Rollergirls' A and B travel teams, 5280 Fight Club and the Contenders, will take on the Denver Roller Dolls' travel teams, Mile High Club and Bruising Altitude. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the first bout begins at 6:00. Two bouts for the price of one, guests can choose to take in the early or late bout or stay for both. Kids 12 and under are free. Tickets are $24 at http://www.livenation.com, $22 at the door and $20 through individual skaters or at Derbyville, 1407 S. Broadway. VIP tickets for guaranteed seating are $25 at info(at)rockymountainrollergirls(dot)com. Group rates of $15 are available for groups of 10 or more through the league.

Hamburger Mary’s Club M, located at 700 E. 17th St., will host the after party for competing teams and bout participants following every Fillmore bout. The event is free and open to the public, with DJ and dancing all night following every bout at The Fillmore Auditorium. Tips for parking around the Fillmore can be found on the league’s Facebook Page.

Colorado Ride for Kids will be the charity partner for this bout. The Ride for Kids program benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, an organization a Rocky Mountain Rollergirls skater holds close to her heart after her son was diagnosed with choroid plexus pappiloma, a rare form of a slow growing brain tumor. A portion of ticket sales from this bout will go to support this excellent organization.
