Silicon Valley Roller Girls at Left Coast Live, Friday, June 25
SVRG will be setting up a track and doing a roller derby demo at Left Coast Live on Friday night, June 25. LCL will be taking place June 21-26, with free panels and film screenings the first four days. On Friday and Saturday in downtown San Jose, streets between San Carlos and Reed (near 1st) will be closed down for the festival.
Admission for the Friday and Saturday evening concerts are $15 for an advanced purchase ticket (buy here)and $20 at the door each night. My favorite perk is that two-day student tickets are available for $20 (you must bring your student ID to the check-in kiosk).
SF Weekly calls the festival a "mini South by Southwest" because awesome bands like Yo La Tengo (yo la sigh!), OK Go, Neon Trees, and the Crash Kings will be playing throughout the weekend. In total, over 100 bands will be playing on 35 stages--check out the LCL music player to hear more.
