When Charlottesville’s tough and determined ladies go head-to-head in battles of the bicep you get CLAW—the Charlottesville League of Lady Arm Wrestlers. Next up on the wrist warriors’ docket is Hot Claw in the Summertime. Borrowing from roller derby and the eccentricities of the pro wrestling world, CLAW events are defined not only by feats of muscular prowess, but by a combination of flashy costumes and names that take the concept of “pun” to a new level, providing a spectacle that celebrates diversity, and offers a joyful respite from the everyday routine.

Saturday 6/21. 8pm. Blue Moon Diner, 512 W. Main St. 980-6666.
