If you are a fan of the banked-track style of Roller Derby then you are in for a treat. The Lonestar Rollergirls announced today that they'll be hosting Capital Punishment: Battle on the Bank II, a two-day invitational tournament featuring the best banked-track (and even some flat-track) teams this country has to offer. The first-ever banked-track tournament, Battle on the Bank, held last year in Los Angeles was a huge success and this year's tourney in the ATX looks to take it to the next level.
Aside from the fierce Roller Derby action the event will feature a local vendor village where fans and skaters can purchase uniques gifts and skate gear between the bouts and there will be several local bands supplying the soundtrack to the hard-hitting play (including local faves Cruiserweight). Capital Punishment: Battle on the Bank II will be held Sat.-Sun., June 20-21 at the Austin Convention Center.
