Cancel Your Plans for Tonight (Unless Your Plans Involve Big Freedia)

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 4:20 PM

From the music man, Stephen Seigel:


Bounce is a hip-hop subgenre that emerged from New Orleans in the late '80s/early '90s, and next week, the Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia—a ginormous drag queen who is one of bounce music's most visible practitioners—will return to Club Congress to perform at Optimist Club. People are still talking about her last performance there, so don't miss out this time around.

Optimist Club featuring Big Freedia kicks off at 9 p.m., next Thursday, Aug. 25, at Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. Admission is $3, or free with your Opti Club card. For more 411, head to hotelcongress.com, or call 622-8848.

Seriously. Big Freedia. Tonight. You should probably go.
