10 Things Under $10 This Weekend: Roller Girls, Art Detour, Landmine Marathon, and More

The yearly Art Detour extravaganza begins is just a few hours (and Arty Girl's got all the details on the biggest and best shows), but it ain't the only action happening around town.

To wit: This weekend is gonna be a big one for the brawling beauties of the Valley's various roller derby leagues. The one-two punch of bad-ass chicks starts on Friday at the Big Fish Pub in Tempe, where the Tent City Terrors of Arizona Roller Derby will hold a rock 'n' roll benefit show. It's followed on Saturday by the Derby Dames' unveiling of its new banked track over in Glendale.

There's seven other events in store that you'll definitely want to partake in, and you can get the lowdown after the break.
