The big roller derby weekend just got a little bigger. Aside from the long-awaited banked track tournament (come back later this afternoon for an interview about the event with TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls' April Ritzenthaler, aka La Muerta), there's some flat track action tonight, courtesy of the magic of the interwebs.

The Texas Rollergirls' travel team the Texecutioners is up in Woodbridge, Conn., tonight to take on the nation's top team, the Gotham Girls Allstars. For those of you that can't afford an overnight flight to New England, there's a watch party with a live stream at Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto. The party starts at 5.30pm and runs until final whistle, plus there's the bonus of happy hour drink prices.
