The Los Angeles Lady Arm Wrestlers (also known as LA LAW) are putting together a November event that’s part theater, part wrestling, part burlesque, and part… well I’m not exactly sure how to describe it.
The LA LAW’s Fall Brawl is set to go down on November 16 at the Bootleg Theater with all proceeds benefiting REALGirl, an organization dedicated to the empowerment of young women. Expect mayhem, arm wrestling matches, live music, and even a appearance by celebrity judge Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele).
Of course you may be wondering what a ‘Fall Brawl’ actually looks like, so I’d urge you to take a peak at this preview vid uploaded to YouTube for a bit more of the look and feel…
There’s no official website for the group (other than the official Facebook page) but according to Hector Diaz of The Classical the local arm wrestling group is part of a larger national organization called the Collective Lady Arm Wrestlers, of which there are more than 25 different branches across the U.S.
Hector has some good tidbits in his piece, so if you’re looking for more background I’d urge you to give his piece a read.
Tickets for the Fall Brawl start at $10 via TicketFly.
The Los Angeles Lady Arm Wrestlers ‘Fall Brawl’ takes place on Monday, November 16 at the Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057.
Doors open at 7:00pm, event starts at 7:30pm.
Oh, and here’s a bit more about the foundation that the event proceeds will benefit:
“REALGirl is dedicated to inspiring and guiding girls ages 9-16 to discover their ‘REAL’ (authentic) selves and develop the skills, knowledge, confidence and courage they need to consistently make informed life-choices from a place of self-knowledge, self-respect and strength. The goal of REALgirl to provide essential life skills every girl/young woman needs for healthy maturation, development, formation of healthy relationships and the opportunity to reach her own unique and highest potential. Through art, movement, discussion, writing, theatre games, guest speakers and a variety of other fun and dynamic activities, participants will be guided to develop tools to successfully navigate issues every girl faces today.”
