No one likes a referee, especially one that tries to interfere on all the teeth smashing goodness of roller derby. But despite the risk that comes with wearing stripes, Boy Eats Drum Machine's Jon Ragel suits up as a derby official in this new video for "ABQ," from his brand new Hoop + Wire album.
Directed by Benjamin Meader, the video includes a few of the Rose City Rollers plus plenty of footage from the Brutal Beauty roller derby documentary. Speaking of, that documentary screens tonight for free at the Doug Fir. Doors at 6 pm, and all the skating action starts at 7 pm.
Please don't wear skates to the screening, you'll fall to your death down those Doug Fir stairs.
