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 quite 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.

Greg Wheeler & the Poly Mall Cops: Straight out of Des Moines, IA, aka the ninth best place to live in the entire world, Greg Wheeler and the Poly Mall Cops deliver manic garage punk slime at its finest — whatever that means. Greg Wheeler (Night Stories, The Wheelers, The Slats) joins Jill McLain-Meister and friendly neighborhood barber Hutch to form an unusual and frantic chemistry that leaves you winded, but thirsty for more. Their 2023 debut full length, “Manic Fever,” out on High Dive Records, is a fitting follow up to their previous 7-inch releases – packing a punch with twelve high energy bangers. Merging the sounds of past punk acts like the Wipers and The Rats with the modern garage leanings of acts like Thee Oh Sees and Jay Reatard, Greg Wheeler and the Poly Mall Cops add a fresh energy to the Midwest scene. LISTEN: 
Ramona and the Sometimes is a Des Moines, IA based 5-piece pop-rock band led by multimedia artist Ramona Muse Lambert. The group relies on accessible hooks and pop song structures with emotionally raw, often positive and uplifting lyrical content. The songs frequently use lighthearted, occasionally humorous imagery to address more serious subject matter and darker emotions. With Muse Lambert’s roots being in visual arts, the project explores a strong visual element, with ever-evolving costume and stage design to enhance the live performance. LISTEN: 

DJ Uncle Willy: Raised in the roller rink since birth, and finely seasoned in the streets and clubs of New York City, DJ Uncle Willy aka Willy Muse is the king of vibes, the boss of beats, and the shaman of booty shakers. Come witness his return to his natural habitat as he spins everything from classic rink jams to modern bops that will have you rolling past the booth yelling “what was that song?!”
