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.
