Big Freedia

Big Freedia is blowin (bouncin) up. It's been roughly four months since the New Orleans resident was featured prominently in the New York Times Magazine, and she'll be making what is probably her network television debut tonight (9/30) on Last Call With Carson Daly. That's on after Fallon, so unless you stay up all night, set your DVR.

if you happen to be in Miami, well then you can also catch Freedia tonight at Vagabond. It's the next show on an ongoing tour that continues through Pop Montreal (10/3), some dates with Matt & Kim (10/11-10/13), CMJ and Fun Fun Fun Fest.

For CMJ, there are at least two NYC shows, both official, ticketed showcases and both on sale. There's the previously mentioned Windish showcase happening at Santos on October 23rd (tickets), and a show one night earlier at Southpaw with Javelin and Dominique Young Unique (who also plays the Santos show and who also played with Freedia at the final Pool Party of the summer).

And as if Big Freedia shows aren't dirty enough, she recently played one in an actual strip club and there's (NSFW) video footage. That video and all dates below...

Man .. Yo Majesty's members must be so bitter at this point. All these acts stole their concept and ran with it.

I saw Big Freedia open for The Rapture and i'm pretty sure she's a dude. Or is she a tranny, so it would be more "proper" to refer to her as she? Can't a black man wear a weave without being called "she"?

Big Freedia is obviously a dude are you people crazy?

You apparently aren't familiar with "bounce" music if you think Yo Majesty did the stealing.

@9:43 LOL!!! Also, there are not nearly enough gratuitous clapping shots in that video. The dancers, editor and director of that video should be ashamed of themselves.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
