Big Freedia at Afro-Punk Fest 2013
Ass-shakin' New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia just bounced her way through NYC for the Afro-Punk Festival, which went down over the weekend (8/24-25) in Fort Greene's Commodore Barry Park. A few pictures from her set on Sunday (8/25) are in this post. There's more at Facebook and still more on the way. Meanwhile, day 1 pictures are up now.
Big Freedia doesn't have a full tour scheduled at the moment, but she does have a few upcoming shows planned, including a return to NYC on November 1 and 2 at Brooklyn Bowl with "Special Guests!" each night. Tickets for night 1 and night 2 go on sale Thursday (8/29) at noon. All currently known dates are listed below.
Big Freedia is also releasing a new EP, The Queen of Bounce, on October 2 via Queen Diva Music/Beat Exchange. The EP will feature six tracks, including the 2012 single, "Booty Whop."
