Rollerpalooza II? What is it?
The very lovely people from Drowned in Sound (or DiS for you and me) are celebrating their first decade. What better way to do it than go Rollerball/Whip it on us and organise a night of rollerskating and music this 8th of October?
Well, you can join them and some very great musical talent (Pulled Apart By Horses, Liars Beware, Hey Sholay!, No Age and Male Bonding + DJs) to celebrate in style with this event, called Rollerpalooza II.
5 bands, DJs, general musical tomfoolery. While skating. Awesome sauce.
Doors open at 9:30 PM, it’s 18+ and entry tax is 12.50 (which includes skate hire, but no Ellen Page or James Caan).
So for that princely sum, you get 5 five bands (Pulled Apart By Horses, Liars Beware, Hey Sholay!, No age and Male Bonding), 4 djs (Death by shoes, DrownedinSound, Dash and Blast and Idiot Box) and party until very, very late.
Skate Central, in Sheffield. The place is in Queens Road (near Enterprise rent-a-car and B&Q).
You need directions? Well, from what we copy-pasted from the Skate Central website, you can get there with the following buses: 6, 7, 21, 41, 43, 47, 48, 51, 53, 723.

I’m afraid of Myspace but I still want to know how these bands sound like.
Good, ’cause we got a few streams for you…

No probs. See you there. Just don’t let Hey Sholay! get near any of your electronic gadgets.
