Big Freedia brings her fantastic self to CAM and she comes to slay. The Queen of Bounce, she’ll transform the museum performance space into a ward of New Orleans for one-night-only. The tempo will be up, the bass will be heavy, and Big Freedia will help you release your wiggle. Featured on Beyoncé’s “Formation” and Drake’s “Nice for What,” Big Freedia takes NOLA bounce to the mainstream as the ambassador for the Crescent City’s homegrown musical phenomenon. Her first record, Just Be Free, was selected as one of the “best electronic releases” of 2014 by Rolling Stone, and she has toured music from her most recent EP, Third Ward Bounce, across North America through much of 2018. “Bounce is feel-good music, we need that right now,” she says. Bounce also “has a lot to do with ass-shaking.” But, as she says, “You already know.”
Doors 8:00 pm / Show 9:00 pm. Tickets on sale Friday, September 7, at 10:00 am.
