See Sprockettes Saturday

Posted by on September 16th, 2005 at 12:16 am


The word on the street is that the Sprockettes – Portland’s pedaling princesses of pink – will be rocking (or should I say “sprocking!”) the Alberta Street Fair this Saturday. You can catch their show at around 6PM at the infamous Alberta Clownhouse (NE Alberta and 25th or so).

What are Sprockettes you ask? They defy description but you can think of them like an urban dance troupe crossed with synchronized swimmers whose main props are pink mini-bikes. My daughter plans on trying out as soon as she’s old enough. My advice is to catch them locally while you can because I’m sure some big agent is going to scoop them up and take them on a global Sprockettes tour!
