Spinning vinyl at this week’s roller skating event, The Bayshore Rink Party—the only outdoor roller rink in the city—is local DJ collective Slop Stomp. The vinyl junkies (and part-time bartenders at Alex’s Bar) DJ Polyester, Master Droog and Telegram Sam are dropping the needle on a specially curated set of all their favorite glam, soul and rock-n-roll jams. The all-ages romp, which regularly hosts styled parties, like their 80s themed night back in August, or next week’s Halloween themed night, Ghouls on Wheels, try and keep the spirit of rolling around on the mini four-wheelers spinning, especially after the closing of the Banked Track Roller Derby six years ago.

Plus, as you can see from the above photo, you just may meet some exceptional gents.

Another great thing: Entry is almost always $5. If you don’t have your own skates you can rent for $5 (they recommend reserving your skates ahead of time due to a limited amount of sizes. To do so, send them a message on their Facebook page, here.) For this weeks Rock n’ Roll takeover by the Slop Stomp collective, cover charge is $7.

Give us a moment’s pause: Roller skating to a sunset backdrop. Nuff’ said.

Slop Stomp Takeover Bayshore Rink Party runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Bayshore Roller Rink; 14 54th Place.
