Richter City home game 3 Smash Malice vs Comic Slams

Richter City home game 3 Smash Malice vs Comic Slams

Roller derby teams face off for spot in season final

Wellington’s Richter City Roller Derby league will host the final game of their 2014 home season round robin on Saturday 2 August at Kilbirnie Rec Centre to determine which teams head into the season final.

2013 home season champions Comic Slams – in blue and silver – will face off against leopard-clad Smash Malice, who were defeated earlier in the season but are still in the running to appear in the final on Saturday 30 August.

Both teams have had loyal crowd followings since 2011, and this heated match-up for a spot in the final will be no exception. With a more cosy and homegrown atmosphere than Richter’s former home TSB Arena, fans will have to get in quick for the limited number of seats available at Kilbirnie Rec Centre.

Several veteran skaters have swapped team strips this season while a whole new crop of rookies has joined the Richter ranks. Fans can check out the new line-ups at https://www.facebook.com/richtercity

Doors 6pm, bout starts 7pm – tickets available at http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/2014/roller-derby-smash-malice-vs-comic-slams/wellington

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
