We are gearing up for our first solo video project.

Looking for folks who want to be key grips and editors and all things film shoot. Perfect for the art school student looking to be the first to expose our inner BMX Betty to the world.

Ideally the internet will find the genre-bending experience quite satiating.

Bike Ballet Gets Boisterous in Bayview:

March 9, 2011

“The Derailleurs were a constant black and turquoise whirlwind, throughout their performance almost – always connected to their bikes like it was an extension of their own self.  When they weren’t on stage, the women were interspersed among the head-banging spectators, erasing the performer-audience barrier.”

San Francisco Bike Dance?

An International Phenomenon?

Bicycles are infiltrating everything from t-shirt design to sports like bike polo. The bike has become such a part of our everyday life that it is becoming a part of our art. Yes folks, your local bikedance team, The Derailleurs, are a group of dangerous athletes combining bikes and dance in an internationally competitive setting. They are your key to the underground world of peg bruises and team colors. Street-style bikedance began in Portland ,OR in 2004 with The Sprockettes and that is where they are returning for a bikedance summit. Derailleurs will be meeting up with The Sprockettes, B.C.Clettes, as well as the new team from Chicago, The Racketeers. In fact there are 15 bikedance teams from Canada to England to Japan. Basically The Derailleurs are at the forefront of a new movement, and we might possibly be the best in the world. One of the founders of the Derailleurs was also a formative Sprockette. Team Teal is returning to the birthplace for an epic showdown. The competition is both sisterly and fierce. There is an amazing culture that is thriving right under your nose and you might not have known about it. San Francisco, we want to represent you and make sure the world knows that the Bay Area knows how to bikedance.

To arrange such a journey, The Derailleurs and Friends are throwing an epic warehouse cabaret party.

Come to our soire and see how our zeal for the wheel has true sex appeal.

The awesome line-up:

*The Nerv – driving femme agitpunk.

*Thee Hobo Gobbelins – otherworldly steampunk porch jams

*Dj 0.000001 (aka Th’Mole)- quirky deep bass booty shakers

*The Can Cannibals– grotesque burlesque
