Women in fishnets, ganging up on the jammer charged with scoring, all while on roller skates — welcome to roller derby, the full-on contact sport where the wilder the action, the better. South Side Roller Derby, Houston’s only banked-track roller derby, promises a whole bunch of action in the doubleheader that’s the next rung in deciding who will make it to the championship game. The match opens when the Biohazard Babes (led by Demon Spawn and Wreck n Roll) take on the Cut-Throat Cupcakes (captains Mojo and Trauma Queen), followed by a battle between the MissFits (led by Hulk Smash and Paula Cream-Her) and the Maidens of Malice (Sk8 Charmer and Texas Slam *Her). “This match-up is really important for the Cupcakes,” says Biohazard Babe Dick Tater. “If they lose, they’re out of the championship, because they’ve already lost one game. We’re looking to kick them out for good.” Tater says it’s like NASCAR, but with women on roller skates in shiny hot pants. “It’s exciting. It’s blocking, hitting, takeouts, watching a whole pack of girls gang up on another. What’s not to love?” 6 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Pasadena Convention Center, 7902 Fairmont Parkway, Pasadena.
