When New Orleans "Sissy Bounce" queen Big Freedia and her partner DJ Rusty Lazer last graced the magic city in December, they were just starting to break Nola's sexually ambivalent take on Miami Bass / booty music out of the wards and into the world. Now a mere 10 months later - they are on the verge of world domination.
Big Freedia and DJ Rusty Lazer's call and response chants and booty quaking beats are turning up in clubs all over North America. Their tour schedule is littered with high profile dates like theMontreal Pop Festival and Austin's Fun, Fun Fun Fest. The New York Times did a huge profile on them over the summer. And last night, they performed on National Television for Carson Daly's "Last Call."
The call to culoshas been sounded. Miami, get thee to to the Vagabond tonight and show Big Freedia and DJ Rusty Lazer what town wrote the 808th commandment: "Thou shall shake what your momma gave you."
And if all the hedonism going down tonight inspires you to find Mr or Mrs Right Now? Just imagine the sissy bounce queen in your dituation. What Would Big Freedia Do?
After tomorrow morning's cafe con leche goes down your throat, it will become clear what Big Freedia's strategy would be. She'd blame it on the alcohol.
