December 8 -- Bout time in Boston, plus a winter food drive!

Nutcrackers vs. Cosmonaughties

Saturday, December 8, 2007 Doors at 5 pm, Bout at 6 pm Shriners Auditorium Wilmington, MA

Tickets $14 in advance, $16 at the door

It's dancer grace versus outer space when the Nutcrackers meet the Cosmonaughties at the second home team bout of Boston Derby Dames' Season Two. The Nutcrackers, BDD's badass ballerinas, are sharpening their elbows and perfecting their sneaky pirouette punch. Meanwhile the Cosmonaughties have spent all summer in their Vulvatron lab, constructing bionic parts and cyborg teammates from Sputnik-grade steel.

Boston punk favorites Darkbuster play during halftime, and DJ Boo Boo Danger spins through the bout and into the night at the on-site after party.

SEASON TICKETS ALSO AVAILABLE! Pro-rated as the season progresses, but always the best roller derby deal this side of the Charles.
