Folk Death 95

I am, admittedly, a bit late to the Big Freedia party. But really, if you are throwing an event where you want people to leave completely drenched with sweat from shaking their ass all night, put on some Big Freedia and consider your mission accomplished. You know how Andrew W.K.’s songs are 98% about partying hard? Big Freedia is kind of like that, except ass-shaking instead. The genre of music Freeedia is pioneering is termed, “Sissy Bounce” which arose out of the housing projects of New Orleans. You can read more about that in her bio, which is actually quite interesting. I remember the booty era of music in the early 90’s and I was staunchly not in favour of it because it felt cheap and demeaning. Bounce, however, feels more like a celebration. And despite the many, many asses, (amongst other things,) you will see in these vids, I think you’ll agree – no one shakes it quite as well as Big Freedia herself.

This one is video shot of a live performance in a strip club called Little Darlin’s in New Orleans. So yeah, it’s NSFW for most people.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 

It’s great to see the Human League still at it, some 30-plus years in. They recently released their latest album, Credo, overseas at the beginning of the month and along with it, came this trippy video. Mirrors, man… mirrors…
