Rippin' & Rollin'

Come experience an immersive live music & skating event at the flagship installment of Rippin’ & Rollin’ at Skate South (10494 County Line Rd, Des Moines, IA) on May 18th! Bands will perform in the middle of the rink floor, while audience members get to skate around them and enjoy Skate South’s surround sound PA and lighting system, or witness it all from the fully-amplified standing/seating area. To kick off the series, we will have performances from Greg Wheeler & the Poly Mall Cops, Ramona & the Sometimes, and DJ Uncle Willy.

Complete with classic, nostalgic roller skating games like Limbo and the Dice Game, it’s quite possible that you’ve never been to a show like this! Doors will open at 8:45, tickets are $16 in advance/$19 day-of-show. 18 and older, or younger teens must be accompanied by an adult.
