Wow, if only Toulouse Lautrec were alive today, or Helmut Newton, they would have loved these girls - Bruce Weber

On January 12th, The Big Easy Rollergirls did a fashion shoot with Bruce Weber for W Magazine's April issue.

Bruce and his crew

In true do-it-yourself form, the rollergirls met on top of an abandoned rooftop, pulled out the brooms and pulled up the changing sheets.




Shortly before dusk, Bruce and his fabulous crew came roaring up on the roof and started snapping and filming our lovely and multi-talented rollergirls.

We are so proud to be part of this special, 60-page pictorial of New Orleans. You can also view some behind-the-scenes video of our shoot.

St. Patrick's Day Parade

Life's too short not to be Irish!

Join The Big Easy Rollergirls and the refs, this Friday, March14th at
Molly’s at the Market on 1107 Decatur St in the French Quarter for their annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Irish Philosophy
In life, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well, there is nothing to worry about.
But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will get well or you will die.

If you get well, there is nothing to worry about.
But if you die, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will go to heaven or hell.

If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.
And if you go to hell, you’ll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends,

you won’t have time to worry!

The parade starts around 5:30-6ish, so make sure you get there in time to watch some of your favorite rollergirls!

Oh, he occasionally takes an alcoholiday.-- Oscar Wilde

Lucky's Ticket Party

On Saturday, March 8th, The Big Easy Rollergirls held a Ticket Event Party at Lucky's Bar on 1625 St. Charles, one of our favorite stomping grounds. Not only did The Big Easy Rollergirls sells tickets to the March 16th bout, but they also raised money for Artdocs.
And of course, in true fashion, they raised a little hell, too.
Belle Berg Devo made a special appearance, singing their own version of "Poison."
Thanks to everyone who came out to support us, and special thanks to the wonderful staff of Lucky's.
