Bicentennial Disco Skates

Bicentennial Disco Skates

It’s mid-August, Summer festival season pretty much just wrapped up with Lollapalooza last week, and the weather’s gonna get ugly sooner than you’re ready for. All this begs the question: have you a rocked a pair of skates at the roller disco/roller derby this summer?

If you haven’t yet, you might want to take a trip down to Belmont Army Vintage and pick up a pair of skates. We tracked down a bunch early in the season and we’ve still got a few left, including the sweet Bicentennial Disco Skates shown above.

Upcoming roller skating events:

  • August 14, the Chicago Outfit Derby Girls hold a Michael Jackson tribute party at Horseshoe with Neverland, a live MJ-tribute band. (more info at
  • August 29, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars take on Baltimore’s Charm City Rollers at the UIC Pavillion (more info at
  • Every Wednesday and Saturday, our friend the Southside Scrabblor spins classic hip hop, funk and juke at the MLK Ent Skating Rink at 1219 W 76th Street ($2 skate includes rentals, call 312-747-2602‎ for details)
