Hell on Wheels
• 7 p.m. Saturday, July 19: In “Southern Discomfort” at the Cincinnati Gardens, the 26th-ranked Cincinnati Rollergirls’ all-star team, the Black Sheep, will try to knock the 3rd-ranked Carolina Rollergirls’ all-star team down a few notches in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association rankings.

And that’s not all! Also Saturday night:

• Several Cincinnati Rollergirls, family and friends, including The Librarian and Panterrorize, will get their hair “lamb-chopped” for charity, Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths, live at the bout. Hair donated to the Beautiful Lengths program is used to make wigs for cancer patients. Audience members will have a chance to sign up at the bout so they too can donate their hair to this great cause. Anyone who signs up to donate will get free Pantene and a free haircut at Pinnokios Hair Design at 4575 Hamilton Ave. in Northside, 513-541-4668.

• The Cincinnati Rollergirls’ “B” team, the Silent Lambs, will split into two teams for one night only and play each other in a fun-filled bout tied in with the night’s charity. The teams will be called The Beauty School Drop-Outs and the Demon Barbers. You don’t want to get your hair – or anything else – cut by these ladies!

• Midwest Men’s Roller Derby, an all-male flat track roller derby league made up of skaters from Cincinnati, Daytonand all over the Midwest, will make their local debut with a 20-minute exhibition bout.
