Long Beach, CA- Do you like a good party? We’ve got a number for you. It belongs to the Queen of Bounce: Big Freedia. She’ll get the party started for you stat.
If you don’t know who Big Freedia is, she is a New Orleans recording artist who is one of the key figures who brought the southern genre of bounce out into the mainstream in 2010. She was also the winner of MTV’s “Too Much Ass for TV” award. So yeah … you want to get the party started? Give Big Freedia a call.
And she brought the party vibes to Music Tastes Good as soon as she stepped onto the stage and her DJ blasted her frenetic beats through the festival’s loudspeakers. Accompanied by three dancers, the booty shaking was literally non-stop, with each dancer taking turns to showcase and present their respective “ass”ets.
The only festival misstep … and really, the only poor choice of scheduling during the whole weekend … was having Big Freedia’s set on the Main Stage overlap with Peaches set on the New Orleans stage, which required fans to choose which performance to cut short. In fact, Peaches even announced her own displeasure with that fact herself.
But music snobs can’t really complain since the mere fact that Peaches and Big Freedia were performing back-to-back sets was a pretty genius move in an of itself. And even though I had to sacrifice a bit of Big Freedia’s set to make it into the photo pit for Peaches, I still had enough time to shake my own booty to my heart’s content.
