Separated at Musical Birth?

I was listening to some more old Figgs songs, and this one (a Young Fresh Fellows cover) reminded me of a character from another song. "She came down from the Ozarks, to the big city Memphis world." Is the "Hillbilly Drummer Girl" related somehow to the "Arse Kicking Lady from the Northwest" who came down from Kentucky with "a fresh pack of Luckies and a Bowie compilation tape", as described by the Australian band You Am I? The Ozark Mountains aren't in Kentucky, I know.

Is anyone in the Atlanta area going to the Atlanta Rollergirls bout this Sunday night? It will be my first time. The Toxic Shocks will battle the Apocalypstix, and Atlanta band the Swear will provide the halftime entertainment.

Roller Derby seems all the rage these days. All 5 boroughs have a team in NYC.

Yep. Even we unsuffistikated Milwaukeeans have a pretty popular roller-derby thing going on these days.

Roller derby (like hockey and professional bowling) probably has a longer history and a bigger audience in the Northeast and the Midwest than it does here.

Atlanta only recently started a soap box derby for hipster adults, which I think was big in LA and SF about ten years ago. At this rate, we should get an "alternative" marching band in about 2016.

I'm posting something partially in response to this on the Atlanta Roller Derby league soon. Keep on the lookout.
Thanks for coming out by the way!
