On January 20th, the Big Easy Rollergirls were guests of
for their cd release party at One Eyed Jacks
Sporting red in support of The Tomatoes, the rollergirls descended on the French Quarter Club.
The Gubernatorial Candidates opened the show.
The Public followed.
Some of the rollergirls were on skates, while others were in various forms of bold footwear.
CHEAP THR!LL, despite being in cast, operated the penalty wheel in full magnificence.
When The Tomatoes took the stage, The Big Easy Rollergirls either danced (or rolled) around the crowded floor to their pulse-pummeling music.
A brief interlude was taken to prepare the drummer, Woody, for his laborious journey into matrimony. It was unfortunate that he actually has to sit down to play… but we hope he cherishes his broken autographed paddle.
It was a late night. It was a great night.
Despite the previous night’s adventure, The Big Easy Rollergirls were back in action Sunday afternoon at Lucky’s on St. Charles to cheer on their other favorite home team – The Saints. Despite their buoyancy and exuberance, The Saints fell to The Bears. They had a great season.
Sophie Nuke ‘Em (aka Queen of the Krewe of Mystick Newcombus) was honored at Newcomb College on January 25th. For her royal highness, the documentary by Rebecca Snedeker entitled By Invitation Only was shown. Afterward, Rebecca and co-producer Tom Watson lead a lively discussion group. Impressed by Rebecca’s intelligence, cool head and fortitude, BERG has a new mission – we have got to get this woman on skates!
Vandal O’Riley electrified the CAC on January 26th and 27th as Veve laRoux, Bingomistress at The Bingo Show. Kelkat and Colonel Panic were in attendance and were wowed by the show’s energy and creativity.
The CHEAP THR!LL fundraiser on January 31st was a huge success. Warmest thanks to The Louisiana Pizza Kitchen
in the French Quarter for feeding so many Big Easy Rollergirls and their fans in one night! CHEAP THR!LL, to say the least, was thrilled!
“The fundraiser was a much bigger success than I dared hope for. I am still surprised by the huge amount of support that I'm receiving from the people of this community. This is a trying time for me and I'm so happy I don't have to do it alone. That is the best medicine.”
On February 3rd, The Big Easy Rollergirls gathered on Frenchmen Street to enjoy the wit and sardonicism of Krewe du Vieux. Because (technically) this is a PG-13 site we are abstaining from showing pictures of the floats. We figured showing the rollergirls was pushing it as is.
Afterward it was off to Molly’s at the Market, where Lt. Dan valiantly worked the back bar and kept the rollergirls blissful.
