Big Boi @ NYU in September (more by Lauren Monaco)
Big Boi

Hip-hop heavyweight Big Boi brought the house down [the other night at Moogfest] with a set of Outkast hits and stand-out tunes from his hot new album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Highlights of the set included "Rosa Parks," "Ms. Jackson," "So Fresh, So Clean," "Shutterbug" and "General Patton." A powerful live rendition of "Follow Us" featured Kyle Lucas of Vonnegutt singing the hook. And during "The Way You Move," Big Boi invited a group of ladies on stage to dance as he rapped the refrain: "I like the way you move / I love way you move."

While his Outkast collaborator Andre 3000 was missed, Big Boi was backed by a ferocious posse of live musicians and singers that included a drummer, guitarist, horn section and super hot female bass player wearing knee high black leather boots. He was also armed with a gang of choreographed backup dancers and hype-men that added to the visual spectacle.

During the live rendition of "Daddy Fat Sax," the sound turned distressingly towards metal-rap for a moment, but mostly Big Boi rode a deeply funky and danceable Dirty South groove. [Mountain Xpress]

Big Boi will co-headline a pre-Christmas show with a Calvin Harris DJ set at NYC's Terminal 5 on December 22nd. Openers will be LA Riots and The Knocks (who just opened for Die Antwoord at Gramercy). Tickets ($45 advance general admission / $50 day of show general admission / $100 VIP admission includes 4 hour open bar) will go on sale Friday at noon.

Big Boi's last NYC shows were at Brooklyn Bowl and NYU.

Shout Out Out Out also played Moogfest in North Carolina over the weekend and will be in NYC this week.

As per BV’s pension for photography I was really hoping for a set to go along with Wright up.
