Thanks everyone who came out for the Friday Night Lights throwdown! Stay Puff crushed Killary Clinton and sent Miss Claws packing to the North Pole, making the marshmallow monster our newest champion. NO LAW raised $1,300 for the New Orleans Abortion Fund! Thank you to One Eyed Jacks, wrestlers and volunteers as well as Bruce Lee and The Feminist Giving Tree who provided subjective opinions and cutting commentary for the evening. Stay tuned for our 2015 Brawl Schedule.
Hits and glitz, down set! Our next brawl will be Friday December 12th at One Eyed Jacks, 8 pm. Proceeds will benefit the New Orleans Abortion Fund, a community-based organization rooted in social justice, with the purpose of challenging socioeconomic inequalities by providing financial help to women who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion.They affirm a woman’s right to control her body and her destiny, and work to ensure that all people have access to quality medical care, regardless of their economic situation. Come out for matriarchal mayhem at the twenty yard line.
Last night’s Super Brawl II raised $2,500.00 for Girls Rock New Orleans and belted a new champion, Seance Brawles, after a fierce final match with fellow returning wrestler, Margot TenenBOMB. This brings the total amount raised for Girls Rock through NO LAW to $3,383! Huge thanks to everyone who came out, threw down, volunteered, threw glitter and raised hell. We would love to have you get involved for the next event! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be a part of the magic. More pictures and news coming soon!

Saturday April 19th, 8 pm at the Art Klub (519 Elysian Fields Ave.) will be NO LAW’s second season ending brawl, SUPER BRAWL II: SHE HAS RISEN.
Our past eight champions, the toughest of the tough, the boldest of the bold, will face off to reign supreme for all the glory, domination and bragging rights we have to offer. This extravaganza will feature tables from rad organizations during Happy Hour, rocking bands plus a half-time date auction and a sick DJ dance party to follow. Proceeds will benefit Girls Rock New Orleans,an organization which acknowledges that “young women, Trans gendered and non-gender conforming youth are not often encouraged to develop themselves musically. Through collective creative collaboration, campers are encouraged to work together in a way that promotes mutual support and growth, rather than the competitive element.”
We need volunteers, y’all. Contact email@example.com to get involved. Bring it.
Princesses, rat queens, ball busting, nut cracking. Muster up some holiday cheer and join New Orleans Ladies Arm Wrestling at One Eyed Jack’s on December 7th with that giving spirit. Our last brawl of the year will benefit Womanspace Louisiana, a safe haven for women who are experiencing homelessness, mental illness, and/or substance abuse.
Pre-action happy hour at 8 pm with tabling by local organizations. End of night post-action dance party with DJ Swim Team!
As per usual, ruthless wrestlers are lined up to fight for power, glory and affection. Your bets and $5 cover support local women’s organizations and could win you bar tabs, gift certificates or sweet NO LAW swag. Bring small bills for betting and bribing. Come for the drinks and ladies, stay for the smackdown.
Brief, over-due wrap up of the Surf and Turf Brawl! It Ruled. We raised 2k for the amazing bicycle fundraiser organization Nola to Angola. They ride from New Orleans to Louisiana State Penitentiary over three days in October. Check out the website or facebook for more info on how to join or donate. In keeping with the theme, wrestlers had to pedal their way on stationary bikes into the top bracket as well as ripple those biceps. A-List appearances from Whitney Houston (straight from the grave never looked so good) and oh so fashionable pop-star Katy Perry helped facilitate the MANY ties these bad-ass women racked up through the night. Brawlers pulled out all the stops making messes of science experiments, wreaking havoc via tug of war and intimidating the competition with giant claws. In the midst of it all, NO LAW bid farewell to a very important member, our beloved stage manager, Angharad, who is off to millions of adventures. We love you Angsta the Gangsta! And when the sand storm settled, the new champion was Lamps Armstrong, representative of the beneficiary itself. She finally kicked her juice box habit and had a clean, proud win of this Tour de LAW. Shine bright like a glittered lampshade.
Huge thanks as always to DJs Justin and Brian, our half time performers from Broken Mirror Productions, One Eyed Jacks, performers, volunteers and the generous audience! We hope to see you at our next event, The Great Bawl of Fire on September 7th at Handsome Willy’s. We have not brought the ruckus to this bar in a few years and are very excited for an outdoor showdown. Proceeds will benefit New Orleans Girls Rock Camp. Come at 8 pm for food and bev, feats of strength start on the nosey at 8:30 pm and stay late for a serious dance party. Seriously.
