We Love Mommas

Our Lenten Brawl was a success of biblical proportions. $1,300 is going to Birthmark Doula Collective, which is enough to buy TWO birthing tubs and upkeep materials for a year. Well done betters and bribers! This past throwdown saw the comeback of crowd favorite SlamRock O’Hagan. She was smashed by the Harlem Hammer, in the end, who had the intense eye contact skills and attitude to become our newest champ.

MC Nina was taken out by the woman who brought her into this world. Tete La Plenty showed us what tough stuff she was made of while her entourage glitter bombed the first five rows of the audience. Sister Mary Slammer graced us with her presence to provide blessings  and settle the centuries long debate of Christianity or Judaism when she beat the Circumcisor in a special arm wrestling holy war. Somewhere between weilding an umbrella and burning Chris Brown’s reputation, celebrity judge Rihanna found  time to practice her planking skills for a bribe-sponsored match between illustrious butt ref Big Ern McBurn and former contender, the Vagitarian. Immigrants, religious enthusiasts and many sassy folks all put on an amazing show and got our 2012 season off to a great start.

Humongous thank yous to DJs Justin and Brian Boyles (especially for the continuing after party at Handsome Willy’s), the Camel Toe Lady Steppers, Praline Dupre and the Howlin Wolf. Photos are by Katrina Arnold, check her out for all your freelance needs.

Look for our next brawl in May!

Twas the Final Countdown

Super Brawl was a super duper success! The event raised $2,500 for Common Ground Health Clinic to update their Women’s Resource Guide. Thanks to the generosity from you all, CGHC will be able to work on a Spanish language version as well. That’s fantastic. Big thank yous to the Howlin Wolf for fulfilling our High Life needs, DJ Justin for the killer beats and Katrina Arnold for the fabulous live shots and portraits that will be coming soon. We also had Billy Hunt and Brian Wimer, the geniuses behind the upcoming CLAW documentary, as guest videographers. They created a ridiculously entertaining dance video with material from the brawl. Do take a look.

Who is more competitive than a collection of previously victorious lady arm wrestlers? That was a trick question. There is no one with more of a desire to win an on stage, costumed yet physical competition than our champions. NO LAW started the night off with a bounce national anthem sung by Sarah Palin as the wrestlers were introduced. Celebrity judges Snooky and Councilwoman Kristen Palmer provided running commentary throughout the night, bringing in money by taunting the wrestlers and the audience, goading them on to bigger and better bribing. The entourages were at the peak of style, as gladiators, geeks, girls on fire and mustachioed Cajuns. Half time performances brought the show to a new level with burlesque by Praline Dupre and a jive-ass show by dance troupe NOLA Hip-Hop.

Bait and Tackle and Sistah Slammer were so evenly matched from the get go they had to dance it out, Slammer moving on as the victor of the booty shaking. The president of Chi Omega was in New Orleans on Spring Break, so she stepped in for a missing champion, charge card in hand. Swamp Thang found power through her ever popular nutria bikini to end the sibling rivalry and defeat her sister, our very own Councilwoman Palmer. Long time crowd favorite Phiery Phoenix refused to burn out or fade away all night, gathering bribes for re-dos and even subbed in to provide left handed power for the last round. You all rule ladies.

Then there was the Final Match. For the whole enchilada. All the marbles. The whole ball of wax.  The Denominator (formerly known as Crybaby) vs. The Viper. Cheers were chanted, math problems were solved. A gaggle of patriotic ladies waged an enthusiasm war against a tribe of nerds. It came down to sheer strength of arm and the Viper left the table victorious! She was rewarded with much hissing and a skeleton trophy. Power! Glory! Mayhem!

Keep an eye on us for new merch and upcoming events including The New Orleans Bookfair and Fringe Fest. Wrists up!

July! July!

This month we’ll have extra matriarchal mayhem to fulfill all your raucous needs with mini and full sized brawls.

Join us for a special appearance Sunday, July 10th at the Howling Wolf for Beasts & Brass: A Benefit for Chef Nathanial Zimet.


Nathanial is the chef and co-owner of Boucherie and The Cue Crawl, known as the Purple Truck. Nathanial was the victim of an armed robbery attack in front of his home and although expected to make a full recovery, he still faces a hard road ahead. The Beasts & Brass Benefit seeks to bring the community together in an effort to defray medical bills.

NO LAW will be doing what we do alongside burlesque, music and much more from 8-9pm on Diamond St. outside the Howling Wolf. Learn more and buy tickets here.

It’s never too much ladies arm wrestling. No withdrawal fears here, mere days later is the Steamy Summer Brawl. This tournament benefits BreakOUT, an amazing new organization that fights the criminalization of LGBTQ youth and instead builds their power. They seek to affect concrete policy change and through this brawl YOU can help.

Plus, we’ve joined forces with the Big Easy Rollergirls for over the top brutal babe action on our turf. How will these derby dames fare off skates competing wrist to wrist? AC SlayedHer, Jam Bayou, Brutualicious and other skating terrors will be using their upper body strength at The Rusty Nail, Saturday July 16th, 8 pm. Don’t miss a celebrity judge appearance by Katey Red, drink specials (I really can’t say enough good things about that frozen disco lemonade) and a DJ Justin afterpartydanceparty spectacular!

*Don’t forget, DO NOT park your vehicle across the street from the Rusty Nail. Your evening will be ruined by trying to bail your car out of car jail. Enter and exit the parking lot via Calliope. If there was ever a night to bicycle someplace, this would be it.
