The Ocho 

Roller-derby action

Pin It

Eight promotional tactics to feed the media frenzy over the Salt City Derby Girls’ July 29 debut roller-derby bout:


8. Invite ABC 4’s Chris Vanocur to skate a few laps in fishnets and a tutu on the 5 o’clock news.


7. Tip off the Deseret Morning News’ Chris Hicks that some local women (with tattoos!) are getting uppity.


6. Challenge Real Salt Lake to a soccer-on-wheels match. Winner gets a stadium.


5. Debate mayors Rocky Anderson and Tom Dolan on KUTV’s Take Two over where the stadium should be built.


4. Pitch a feature to Catalyst about holistic healing for physical injuries and aura damage caused by roller skates to the face.


3. Guest on KUER’s Radio West with Doug Fabrizio to discuss the geo-political impact of roller derby on the nation-state and the ruffle-skirt.


2. Guest on KBER’s Freak Show with Mick & Allen to discuss boobies.


1. Solicit space in City Weekly’s insanely popular The Ocho … never mind.


Editor’s note: Frost’s wife is a member of Salt City Derby Girls.
