This week, when the whole art world gets out of the cold, and tries to out freak each other - it's nice to have at least one bona fide freak in town. Tonight, New Orleans Drag Queen "Sissy Bounce" Queen, Big Freedia plays Get Low's "Art BASSel" party tonight at the vagabond.
In a hip hop world filled to the brim with homophobes - "sissy bounce" is a refreshing hedonistic booty clap. In Nola, "sissy bounce" - a slightly more up tempo version of classic miami bass, thats virtually all call and response chants -- attracts good looking girls by the horde, a lucky few of whom get to shake their stuff onstage alongside Bg Freedia to songs like "Azz Everywhere" and "blame it on the alcohol" tunes. As miami is the culo capitol of the americas - she should feel right at home.
