Texas Rollergirls are Badass.

I was recently invited to help Blackbird Clothes & Curios at a recent Texas Rollergirls bout. Held downtown at the Convention Center, I've only been to the roller derby once, and had no idea of what to expect.

This is what I learned: man, do those girls work hard! Their athleticism is awe-inspiring. I wanted to buy a pair of skates as soon as the evening was over.

If I could do half of what they do on skates, I'd be happy.

Blackbird had a great view of the track, and I met a lot of the rollergirls, as we were next to their merchandise booth.

Also, I was surprised to see the band Agent Ribbons there. Apparently, they've moved from California to Austin. They sounded great and even played my favorite song ("Chelsea, Let's Go Join the Circus").

In all, I had a rock 'n rollin' good time.

Hope you enjoy the photos and have a fab Monday!

Look at all the stunning merchandise!Look at them go!Ready to start.Agent Ribbons: "Chelsea, let's go join the circus.
I will take the trapeze, you can tame the lions." The entire bout was very close!
Instead of joining the circus, I would like to join the roller derby, thanks.
