Firebirds’ 1st Birthday @ The Everyman
Roller rebels’ first anniversary shindig at the legendary McCurtain St. theatre.
The Cork City Firebirds turn one on Saturday, and to celebrate, they’re going on the lash.
The roller-derby rebels have a big evening planned, including the Euro premiere of roller derby doc Derby Baby!, as well as a season review video, an exhibition of photos and posters, and new merch on sale.
Tickets are a tenner from Plugd, and it goes down tomorrow night at the Everyman! Presser follows.
On June 30th 2012, Cork City Firebirds celebrate our first birthday. With eight bouts behind us over the past 12 months, we want to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and look forward to a year of bigger bouts, new members, and bringing roller derby in Cork to a whole new level!
To celebrate, we have a very special evening planned – including the European premiere of the new roller derby documentary, Derby, Baby! This landmark feature by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Robin Bond and Dave Wruck, narrated by Juliette Lewis, shows the explosive international development of flat-track roller derby – including interviews with its stars, and footage from the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup.
As well as the movie screening, you can also see a mini-exhibition of photos and posters from Firebirds first year in action, as well as a short video review of the year which will be screened before the film. We will have brand new official Firebirds merchandise on sale, and a chance to win a merch-pack and other prizes. Your support at our prize draw and merch stall helps keep us rolling!
It all takes place at the beautiful old bar in the Everyman Palace Theatre, on MacCurtain St., Cork.
Dress code is black tie – but in derby tradition, feel free to put your own stamp on it…
Tickets are 10 euro – Available from Plugd Records @ The Triskel Arts Centre
