Savannah Derby Devils Are Rocking The South

The Savannah Derby Devils are gearing up for an action packed bout against the Richland County Regulators this Saturday, August 27th at the Savannah Civic Center. The Savannah Derby Devils formed in 2006 during a nationwide resurgence of roller derby and have continued to grow in numbers, skill and in its understanding of this developing sport. They play by the Women’s Flat-Track Derby Association rules, and are a member of the U.S. Association of Roller Sports. The game is played with 14 players from each team on the track in a pack formation. One player from each team hangs back as the pack begins to skate, these players are called the jammers. When the pack is 20 feet across the starting line, the jammers begin skating. A jammer’s goal is to skate through the pack, and lap the pack as many times as she can, which is how points are earned.

This Week’s Featured Story: Stayin’ Alive

Tony Allen, Savannah native and front man for the punk rock band Dead Stays Alive, comes with all the accoutrements of a rock star: blue hair, studded and outrageous jewelry, tats, an entourage, and a killer voice that shakes whatever space, no matter the size, in which he wields a microphone. However, Google his name and more photos of Lindsay Lohan pop up than mention of his music, which, despite not being Jack Johnson catchy, has a decent fan base and, more importantly, is constantly evolving and improving.

Idol Fever Spreads Through Savannah

Savannah has Idol fever, and I’m no exception! Yesterday I spent an exciting afternoon at the The Hyatt on River Street witnessing firsthand the awe-inspiring phenomenon that is American Idol. Host Ryan Seacrest and judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler were close enough for me to touch while they praised Savannah and the crop of talent who came before them during the day’s auditions. According to Tyler, eight of 18 contestants earned a golden ticket to Hollywood, and Jackson declared that Savannah “arrived today with amazing talent.” Despite my reluctance to belt out “Janie’s Got a Gun” for the panel of superstars, I was bubbling with enthusiasm as I listened to them rave about the charm, hospitality, and fabulous food of our beautiful city. Look for more details to come in South’s upcoming film issue and on South TV.
