Malice in Wonderland

When: Sat., April 23, 5:30 p.m. 2011

Although the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland was a little too dramatic when she screamed, “Off with her head!,” that theme has set the stage for the Lowcountry Highroller’s third home bout of the season. While no heads will be chopped off, we’re sure our favorite derby girls will channel the queen and wreak some havoc at Malice in Wonderland. Back in Charleston from a victory in Savannah, the Highrollers are energized and ready to take on Greenville’s Upper Roller Girl Evolution (URGE). While the term “malice” might seem a bit threatening, the event is family friendly: at halftime kids can get involved and push their favorite derby girls on the track, get their face painted, or get involved in the Alice-themed games. Several girls will be dressed like our favorite Wonderland characters, and as player Hurricane Camille assures, “There are more surprises in the works.” The event also includes a prize raffle and music by Cassidy and the Kid. After the excitement, follow the girls to Patrick’s Pub in West Ashley for an after-party. A portion of the event’s proceeds will go to Charleston HALOS, an organization committed to helping abused and neglected children in the Lowcountry.
