The Massacre warms up by taking on Maine Roller Derby's Port Authorities, in a one-period mini bout. BDD has tangled with the Port Authorities (formerly the Vacationland Vixens) before and so far we've always come out on top, but they get faster, stronger, and tougher every time. Will this be the bout that gives Maine a hard-won victory over their southern sisters?

In the main event, the Massacre takes on the Bronx Gridlock of Gotham Girls Roller Derby in a full two 30-minute period bout. New York's Gotham Girls were the hands down dominators of the Heartland Havoc eastern regional WFTDA tournament in Ohio last August, and BDD has been dying to take them on. The Bronx Gridlock, one of GGRD's four home teams, heard the challenge and vowed to untangle themselves from the traffic long enough to come up here and show us how it's done. The Dames have mad derby love for GGRD. What better way to show our respect than by delivering a thorough ass kicking?

Music by The Beatings, featuring BDD's own amazing EZ Bake Shovin'!

As always, DJ Boo Boo Danger spins the tunes throughout the bout and at the public, on site after party. With Maine, Gotham, and the Massacre's pantsless militia in the house, this promises to be the baddest after party we've ever had.
