It’s fast, it’s tough, it’s rock and roll… it’s a whole new roller derby…
Taking us through the early days of the fledgling league, Blood On The Flat Track tells the story of the resurgence of roller derby in the U.S. and Seattle’s own DIY league, The Rat City Rollergirls. The league is populated by 80+ players who are known to the world almost exclusively by their clever sobriquets. Explosive trackside action punctuates the conversation with many of the fan favorites, including Miss Fortune, Basket Casey, Shovey Chase, Burnett Down, Betty Ford Galaxy, and Dirty Little Secret.
